Our love of the burbs, especially Metro West continues! Saturday we dined at The Cottage in Wellesley. A place we have been before, and a spot we consider for date nights on the regular!
A high end feel yet a very comfy place – its a great combo, and a place you can bring kids, assuming you choose the appropriate hour of the day! We arrived at 5 with the little dude in tow, and joined a bunch of other families out on a chilly New England Saturday evening.
Each time we have been seated in a booth, which is my preferred seating and Saturday was no different. A full bar, local beers and a nice wine list was our first priority…. A Napa Cab for me, and local IPA for the Mrs were ordered and enjoyed throughout the meal.
Now, depending upon the night, company, mood etc… The Cottage allows for a wide range of meal styles, think soup/salad, burgers to fish and steaks, w/ some other eclectic goodies sprinkled in between. Case in point, falafel tacos were ordered… more to come on that soon.
To start, I went w/ a bowl of the Chicken Tortilla Soup. Something warm and soothing on a cold Fall day. Perfect. A touch salty, but the crunch of the chips, and the melty cheese… We were huge fans!
Dinner consisted of, as mentioned earlier, an eclectic cultural mashup. I ordered a burger. Classic America baby! Mrs Road and Snack, the Falafel Tacos. While the burger was great, cooked to a medium well as requested… the food envy I had for the Falafel Taco’s was like nothing I have experienced before. Of course I had a taco, and it was awesome. I am ordering that next time for sure!
The meal of the night! The Falafel Tacos
The falafel was spicy, but not too spicy, which is how I like it. There is something inherently healthy about eating vegetarian, and when you can work in lightly fried falafel, we are in! I am still envious!
See you next time The Cottage!
