As a visitor to Boston from New York City, I was looking for an outstanding experience. Everything about the evening was exquisite. We appeared without a reservation on a Friday night, were seated at a quiet table, and treated to what can only be described as really good food. Then the owner came out and explained how much care he takes and how many protégés he trains in his large kitchen. Recommended a New York City restaurant where one of his favorites is working, and when we stopped by we were again greeted enthusiastically.. This is one step above a bistro and certainly equal to our best style of this type in New York City. And it would be right at home in Paris. Great cooking, excellent wines, exceedingly friendly service-- all testimony to the importance of having an owner in the kitchen who is truly proud of his work. Again, important to practice good restaurant karma. Smile when you come in, explain that you're looking for a great experience (and not coming with Groupon coupons), and don't hesitate to share very clearly what you want with your waiter. And if the chef or owner is around, complement them so they will be nice to the next patrons. No one likes to hear strongly negative comments and certainly not to read them from mildly dissatisfied customers.
