This Harvard Square eatery celebrates classic New England cuisine with dishes crafted by chef Mary Dumont, who formerly appeared on the Food Network’s Next Iron Chef and Iron Chef America. The earth-toned dining room is designed with dark wood paneling, rural landscapes, and an open kitchen, and seating is also available on the outdoor patio, which is warmed by fireplaces and heaters during colder months. Incorporating local, seasonal ingredients, chef Dumont creates dishes like rooibos tea—marinated duck breast with Bing cherries and cocoa-crusted venison with baby turnips and carrots. An extensive wine list provides well-priced pairings.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
