My mother is a Harvard alum, so growing up we spent a lot of time in Harvard Square. I've always loved hanging out there - shopping, dining out, people watching - and since moving to Watertown, I now commute through there every day.
Given my twice daily trips through the square, it's easy to spot something new. On Dunster Street, right next to the famous Au Bon Pain (which was in "Good Will Hunting") there is now a restaurant called First Printer.
The night we arrived the restaurant's doors were decked out for the holidays.
We were seated in the first booth, closest to the window. We had a great view of the square out of the big picture windows.
First Printer does have a dessert menu, but it couldn't overcome our desire to pop into Pinkberry which is right around the corner.
I have to say, I wasn't wowed by First Printer. There are so many great restaurants in Harvard Square, why settle?
Have you been to First Printer? What did you think?
