Fodor's Review

Owner-chef-author Chris Schlesinger built his national reputation on grilled foods and red-hot condiments. The Texas style beef brisket and North Carolina shredded pork are still here, but this restaurant has made an extraordinary play to establish itself in the front ranks of fish restaurants. Spices and condiments are more restrained, and Schlesinger has compiled a wine list bold and flavorful enough to match the highly spiced food. The dining space is completely informal. In addition to Saturday lunch, weekends include a killer Sunday brunch (complete with cornbread-crusted French toast and a do-it-yourself Bloody Mary bar).

Excellent seafood and BBQ

In Cambridge's Inman Square, a bit of a walk from the Central Square stop, but well worth seeking out. Has excellent seafood and arguably the best barbecue in the Boston area. Very active, convivial place. If you like seriously spicy food, try to go during "Hell Night," which offers special dishes that will fry the tongue of even the most hardy spice-head. Excellent place.
