Best of Boston 2011
Neighborhood Eats, Charlestown
“...The buttermilk-fried oysters are some of the tastiest in town; the spice-rubbed pork chop with grits is pure comfort...”.
2011 Zagat Rating "Excellent".
The “secluded” Charlestown Navy Yard is the “unlikely setting” of this “intimate”, “atmospheric” “treasure” where “incredibly good prices” are charged for both the “excellent” New American fare and the “good wines”; the staff adds to the “friendly neighborhood atmosphere” inside and out where there are a “few tables” for “when the weather is nice”

2007-2008 Zagat Rating of "Excellent"
“Tucked away in the Navy Yard”, this “casual” Charlestown bistro may be “tough to locate”, but regulars suggest you “give it a try”; “small yet extremely inviting”, at once “classy” and “homey”, it’s staffed by “charmers” who “remember your name” as they dispatch New American fare that, at its best, is “as good as it gets without emptying your wallet.”

2005-2006 Zagat Rating of "Excellent"
"It's about time" the Charlestown Navy Yard housed a bistro, say area workers about this "much-needed" "find" for New American
plates that get "an A for effort" on the part of the "accessible and affable" chef and "accommodating" owner - who also establish
a "relaxed atmosphere" in keeping with the breezy interior.
"...the Bistro, with its open kitchen, seasonal outdoor dining options, extensive wine list and fine,
innovative cuisine, has developed a loyal following among Charlestown natives and visitors alike."
Boston Magazine. June 2005. By Annie B. Copps
"Charlestown's historic Navy Yard serves up more than just history. It's finally got good food...The bistro offers
recognizable favorites...alongside more exotic preparations...thoughtfully prepared with well-balanced flavors...Service is
casual and friendly...So snag a table outside on a warm summer night for a treat with a price that won't rock the boat."
