My dining companion is well-versed on everything regarding the restaurant industry so over a deliciously light Caesar starter with homemade croutons, he regaled me with tales of Silvertone when it was a Speakeasy where many of Boston's greats sat in the very seats we perched.
The walls are neatly adorned with vintage photographs and the vibe is clearly retro in a way so many attempt but few achieve.The crowd was a mix of businesspeople on their lunch break, college students and clusters of older women gossiping over their tea. Ideally perfect for any patron.
After a light salad came a homemade chicken and vegetable soup that was perfect in the midst of my state of winter cold recovery. It was delicious, not too salty and I paired it with a grilled cheese on country white bread and side of the crispiest golden fries. I also snagged a bite of D's meatloaf that came with creamy mashed and a side of asparagus. Divine.
This is the perfect place if you crave a casual but lively atmosphere and fantastic comfort food - a necessity every now
and then when everyone is in their frenzied New Years
resolution state of dieting. The waitstaff was
attentive and friendly and the price point
cannot be beaten.
