LiNEaGe Restaurant Review

: Jeremy Sewall, who first appeared on the radar of Boston foodies as the chef at Great Bay, shines in his own place in Coolidge Corner. The daily contemporary menu may include smoked bluefish pâté, spicy lobster tacos and a cucumber salad for starters. For mains, you will find the likes of roasted shrimp with yellow grits, Long Island duck breast and an adobo-rubbed flat-iron steak. The shellfish signature dish, called Cousin Mark’s Dayboat Lobster, is one Sewall brought with him from Michael Schlow's establishment and is named for a fisherman relative of Sewall's. LiNEaGe’s moniker alludes to Sewall’s Brookline-based bloodline. In the modern, two-room space --- decorated so simply it would seem austere if not for the blazing wood oven --- you'll get more than seafood, of course; roasted and grilled meats and pizzas abound as well. Finish with butterscotch pudding with whipped cream and candied pecans.
