Each week, Mica does a mid-week tasting menu and this one grabbed our attention because it is all about lobster. The four-course lobster tasting is available today through Friday for $45 per person.
And this Sunday is also Chestnut Hill’s Second Sunday promotion where shopping, strolling and brunching is on the agenda. Mica is one of about a dozen restaurants that participate. Check out Mica’s brunch menu here.

So you’ve got your Thursday plans for the 4th of July. If you’re like us, you’ve probably got Friday all mapped out, too. But then the holiday weekend just keeps on going.
Saturday? We’re confident you can handle that on your own. But come Sunday, if you’re not already in some kind of party-coma, how ’bout checking out the 10-course seafood tapas menu that Jamonera is laying down?

Been looking for an excuse to get back to Distrito? We’re here to help.
Reason number one, you could just go back to wish the place a happy 5th birthday–which is something best done by toasting it with shots of crazy-expensive small-batch tequila or mezcal. We suggest the Del Maguey, but we’re very particular about our cactus juice.
Second, you should go to check out the revamped menu that Jose Garces and his chef de cuisine Susan Vanvreerde have put together to mark the passing of such a momentous anniversary. There are 20 new plates on the board–everything from chicharones and JG steak tacos to Salpicon de Langosta, made with chilled Maine lobster with purple potatoes, a chipotle-lime aioli and sesame brittle.
More reasons, right this way…
Now that Thanksgiving is over, the holiday season has officially begun. This means that eating large quantities of food for the sake of “holiday cheer” is not only acceptable, but encouraged by men and women alike. If “holiday cheer” feasting isn’t enough motivation, however, Matyson invites you to celebrate its ninth birthday with a Best of Matyson tasting menu.

Beginning this past summer, the Spanish wine bar served a prix fixe selection of chef-curated tapas for just $35 per person.
