The Cafe Restaurant Review

: Executive chef Michael Mandato offers the classics with an international twist with a permanent selection of rotating Indian specialties like chicken tikka masala and vegetable biryani. Local fare excels, too, such as roasted cod, seared scallops and braised beef short ribs, and specialty tasting menus can be requested with pairings from the lengthy wine list. We also like the rich salted caramel Bailey’s torte. The chandeliered dining room overlooks Newbury Street and attentive service is the standard. Diners dress up for dinner at this refined Old Boston-style restaurant.
