Post 390 Restaurant Review: Located on the edge of both the Back Bay and the South End, Post 390 has a view that offers glimpses of Trinity Church and the Hancock Tower. The restaurant’s interior is sleek and inviting with two floors of exposed brick and cozy fireplaces, not to mention an open kitchen. Chef Eric Brennan’s comfort cuisine ranges from grilled Atlantic swordfish with littleneck clams, fire-roasted peppers and chorizo to a chargrilled skirt steak with Mediterranean vegetables and feta. For an appetizer, we like the spicy tuna poke with sweet grilled pineapple, topped with macadamia nuts. Herb-roasted chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, served atop a truffle cauliflower purée. On the first floor, The Tavern’s menu features crunchy oysters, sloppy “Josef” sliders made with buffalo meat and goat cheddar, and venison stroganoff. For worker bees, meanwhile, there are sandwiches, salads, burgers, flatbreads and a "hot lunch" menu featuring fish ‘n’ chips and four-cheese macaroni. There's also a buzzing bar scene, both upstairs and down, and a slightly spicier cocktail list to go along with it --- try an Agave L’Orange made with orange-jalapeño gastrique, agave nectar and smoked sea salt.
