tw food used to be one of my fave restaurants in boston. i took my mom there for her birthday.
Fiano di Avellino, Campania, Italy 2012 – floral and fruity with bright minerality and a touch of honey!
spring onion + mint shot
SMOKED ONION BISQUE
maine sea scallop, mint-almond brown butter
CRÈME BRÛLÉE FOIE GRAS
“for my mentors,” seckel pear, brioche
crêpe, wheat berries, pineapple, spiced rum, lime
WHOLE WHEAT TAGLIATELLE
braised beef shortrib, yellowfoot mushrooms, rutabaga, pecorino
ribeye, confit tongue, braised cheek, leek dumpling, chioggia beet, green peppercorn jus – this was disappointing, the beef was very tough.
wild nettle butter, potato mille-feuille, carrot bouillon
T.W. CHOCOLATE SUNDAE
hazelnut praline, vanilla ice cream, valrhona chocolate ganache, cassis whipped cream
SCOTCH AND CIGARS
beignets with tobacco ice cream, macallan 12 scotch syrup, valrhona
valrhona dark chocolate custard, candied hazelnuts, sea salt, olive oil
food was still good overall although they still served some of the same dishes as a year ago (they have a small menu). there were 2 brush hairs in my mushroom crepe and service was very disappointing that night as well. not attentive at all and they forgot to bring my mom a candle as i requested. like i said at the beginning of the post, TW food used to be one of my fave spots in boston, but this meal, our experience was rather disappointing. for the price, i do expect a smoother operation, no hair in my food, and some changes in the menu over time or more choices.
