Dishing out SouthCoast reviews, delighted and pleasantly full

22 Sep

The best part of my stint at The Standard-Times has been the food reviews.

A long time traveler, cook and a foodie, I had a fairly visible food blog in Boston that took me to junkets and events around the region. So I was delighted at the opportunity of writing food reviews for Coastin’ when I arrived here 3.5 years ago.

When I am out and about here, people inevitably comment on or remember me from my reviews and ask me for dining recommendations , which I think is a huge honor. I hope they will follow my resurrected food blog and continue to share in my food adventures here.

For your hungry pleasure, here are my final three reviews in Coastin,’ the Thursday arts adn entertainment supplement. They include a warm welcome at a family-friendly restaurant and crab legs, my love affair with pasta and fulfillment at a popular haunt, and hands down the best steak I have had on SouthCoast — these round up my last three Dine Out reviews at The Standard-Times.

I cook regularly at home, but try not to buy red meat in the interest of health and the environment. So I like to indulge when I am eating out. I debated some steak options: the prime rib ($20) rib eye ($22) and the tenderloin tips ($18). I consulted our waitress and picked the tips because she said she loves them.

With the sun setting in the horizon, the hills turning a milky purple, and a soft breeze fluttering the chiffon layer of my borrowed dress, I fell in love with tagliatelle. After years of eating instant noodles and ramen, the creamy strands changed my life and made me forever a lover of pasta.

Walk through the main entrance and a swanky glass wall to the left heralds you into the restaurant described on the website as “an intimate upscale American bistro framed within a modern architectural setting and a warm relaxing environment.
