LaBan Reviews Heirloom in Chestnut Hill

Craig LaBan lets chef Al Paris off the hook for serving a tomato-mozzarella salad in April at Heirloom, because so much else is right at this Chestnut Hill farm-to-table BYOB.

I loved the appetizer of French snails simply tossed with hand-cranked noodles, zucchini laces, and a hit of Fresno pepper to warm the butter-garlic sauce. The wonderfully refreshing Carolina chop salad, molded into a pedestal of crunchy romaine studded with crab, shrimp, and the campfire tang of smoked tomato vinaigrette, has the look of a Chestnut Hill classic.

Two Bells – Very Good
