It was Dorchester Restaurant Week a few weeks ago and a few of us decided to take advantage of it. I’ve talked about restaurant weeks before – three courses for around $30.00.
88 Wharf has been for about a year and a half. The restaurant is located in the Milton Landing condo complex, which is situated along the Neponset River. We went after receiving another 10 inches of snow, so I can’t speak to the location.
However, we enjoyed our meals so much that I’ll come back in the summer to see the views.
I’ll cut to what was ordered by my group.
- Tuna Poke
- Bread Salad
- Lobster Bisque
- Arancini (this wasn’t on the restaurant week menu – Andreas went off the menu)
- Short Rib Bolognese
- Goat Cheese Ravioli
- Duck Confit Risotto
- Flat Iron Steak (again, Andreas – the rebel)
- Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding
We all loved our meals and the portions were very good. I was able to take my bolognese home and have awesome leftovers the next day. I also just have to talk about the fantastic snack that we all shared before our courses came out – truffled potato chips. Homemade potato chips served with a truffle aioli. I would go back to this restaurant, sit at the bar, drink beer and eat these until I burst.
If you live in the area, support your local business! You will not be disappointed.
