About once a month I find myself back in my old stopping grounds, Newton Centre. A few weeks ago I was meeting a friend in that neighborhood after her hair appointment and we didn't quite feel like our Newton Centre usuals - Union Street, Sol Azteca or Johnny's Lunchonette. I suggested we try a new place in the neighborhood, B Street.
Inside, the restaurant is decorated in the romantic hues of red, white and black. The dining room feels very warm and welcoming.
The B Street menu had great offerings for wine and beer, as well as starters and entrees. We were very excited to place our order.
We were in a gluttonous mood, so after dinner we decided to take a look at the dessert offerings. We each selected one item since I always want chocolate and she always wants fruit.
My friend picked the pineapple upside down cake. She said the flavor profile was great, especially when you had a bite of pineapple, coconut and macadamia nut all at once. She did confess, "I wish it had been warm!"
I went with the mocha icebox cake which is one of the most magnificent desserts I have ever had delivered to me.
The cake had an intoxicating flavor that was equal parts chocolate and coffee. The richness of the cake was cut by the crunch of the chocolate covered espresso beans.
I only made it half way through the cake and our waiter was kind enough to box it up for me to take home. I ate it again the next night and it was just as good.
Our evening at B Street was fabulous. The restaurant is lovely, our waiter was attentive and made great menu recommendations, the food was yummy and that mocha cake was out of this world. Having spent the last 28 years eating in Newton Centre, it's nice to have a new place to look forward to visiting.
Have you checked out B Street?
