We went to Matt Murphy's for our wedding anniversary while staying in Brookline. We were attracted by the selection of local craft beers, and the menu which includes numerous seafood dishes. We started with an appetizer off the bar plate menu featuring salt cod and potatoes whipped with loads of butter and cream - PURE BLISS! My husband had the haddock on corn and potato chowder, and I had the seafood pot pie. It was my dream dinner! The scallops alone were practically the size of coasters, and the various fish and shrimp were plentiful. It was almost too big though - my husband and I could have ordered just that with a salad and would have been full. My daughter, who is five, enjoyed the grilled cheese sandwich with Irish cheddar - which must be the most kid-friendly item on the menu as our waitress knew right away to take the tomatoes off. At the end of our dinner, though we'd declined dessert, she brought ice cream with chocolate sauce for my daughter, who later stated that 'it was the best restaurant she'd ever been to!' Too bad it's not our local pub. Would recommend for an easy, upscale dinner.
