Sorelle’s Italian Bar & Grill Route 18 Abington Now Opened

Sorelle’s Italian restaurant is finally open in April 2017    Sorelle Bar & Grill   opens  up in the former location of long time Italian favorite  Vin & Eddie restaurant on Route 18 in  Abington.   We are finally glad to see it open as it took them a lot longer than anticipated.  While Vin & Eddie’s served traditional Italian food, Sorelle will have more modern cuisine, including baked cod with fried polenta, acorn squash tortellini, and arugula pesto.

The Chef and Owner Andrea  Schnell’s  experience  includes working    upscale  The Winsor House in Duxbury and Square Café in Hingham.  She  spent the last 13 years as Executive Chef of the highly successful restaurant Square Cafe, in Hingham, MA. As Executive Chef of the Square Cafe, Schnell has garnered praise from some of the regions toughest food critics  (including many Swampies) and has established a following of regular customers, locals and visitors of Hingham, who can’t get enough of her inventive cuisine.  During her time  at the Square Cafe, she has received numerous awards and accolades from publications such as Boston Magazine, Boston Globe, Patriot Ledger and South Shore Magazine

Here is the Swampie Buzz  so far

The restaurant is beautiful. Very friendly greeters. Our reservation was for 6:15 pm. We got seated right away. The place was packed! Waiter was very friendly. He recommended this beautiful antipasto. I ordered the cod. It came with asparagus and polenta sticks. All yummy! Hubby had the salmon. It came with fingerling potatoes…i forget the veg. I took a bite of his salmon and it was very good. Food presentation is beautiful! The restaurant emptied out quite a bit by 7:30. Waiter let us sit and chat with our friends. No rush to get us out. By 8:15 we noticed that it was packed again so we left. I would go back to try other items on the menu. I hope they change up the menu now and then or add daily specials.

Finally! There’s no need to go into Boston or Providence! The beautiful atmosphere makes you feel like Chef Andrea  brought a little bit of Italy home to us! Delicious flavors yet not too exotic. Appetizers were nothing short of amazing. From the brussel sprouts to the calamari. Short Ribs melt in your mouth! Chicken Saltimbocca was delicious. The service was warm and friendly. Reasonable prices and so close to home. We will definitely be back very soon!

Our server, was fabulous!!! He was very knowledgeable, made recommendations and along with all the staff, was very attentive. The food was amazing!! We started with the roasted pear salad which was delicious!! My husband had the salmon and I, the Chicken Saltimbocca. Both meals  were very generous portions and delectable!! We decided  to take  desserts to go as we were very full. I ordered the tiramisu and my friend  the bread pudding, both desserts were again very delicious! Our whole evening at Sorelle was amazing!!! I suggest everyone try this new amazing restaurant, you won’t be disappointed, ! We will definitely be back!!!

Here is the  Swampie  buzz of   42° North Restaurant

The cauliflower appetizer at 42 Degrees North in Plymouth is one of the best new wave of offerings I’ve tasted. Yes, it goes beyond the Brussel sprouts with bacon and other dishes. The kicked up cauliflower is so full of flavor it reminded us of General Gau chicken, but so much better.
The restaurant and patio were both doing a brisk business for a Wednesday night. My daughter and I ran in for a bite to eat on our way to the Priscilla Beach Theater (review will be on sister site, but see whatever production you can’t the PBT. It’s wonderful.)
Sorry got off topic.
We split the cauliflower topped with, among other things, scallions and sprinkled with red pepper flakes and also split a salad of greens, cheese, walnuts and pears. But realized as we ate, the pears were missing. Not to worry, the gal behind the bar (the only seat where we could grab a quick bite) was taken back by the omission and had sliced pear delivered to us promptly. It made the salad.
Service was top notch. She even brought beverage refills automatically. And the cauliflower will call my name very soon, I’m sure, though I don’t need any enticement to go to 42 Degrees North or any of its sister restaurants for that matter.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at 42 degrees north in Manomet last night. I finally splurged on the baked stuffed lobster. It was worth every penny! I’m pretty sure it was the best meal I’ve ever eaten! Hubby had the short ribs which melted in his mouth. We had a wonderful waitress, Christine, who made us feel very special! Best restaurant around by far!

My girlfriend and I went out for our weekly lunch to day at 42 degrees in Manomet. We both had the mix grille steak tip s chicken and shrimp, rice and grilled zucchini. Everything was great. Matt was our waiter and was very good. The bloody was the best I have had in along time!!!!

Just wanted to say thanks for the suggestions about lunch in Plymouth. We ended up choosing 42 Degrees North in Plymouth.42degrees1
We were not disappointed! This place was really good. Nice atmosphere and decor, pleasant staff and great food at reasonable prices for lunch. Between $10-15 for the lunch menu.
We got the braised short rib sandwich, fish tacos (was one of 3 lunch specials) , fried mac n cheese app, and my grandparents both got the fish and chips. Everyone was extremely happy with their meal. But omg, that braised rib sandwich was sublime. I literally didn’t put it down after the first bite. It’s definitely a place to check out. We will be back again.

My friend and I went for our weekly lunch. We went to 42 degrees North in Plymouth on rte 3a. It was one of the best meals my friend and I have had for lunch. We both had the grilled plate and it was cooked perfect. It had steak tips, sirloin steak , shrimp and chicken. It had a spicy rice and grilled zucchini. Also bread with oil and dip. I have enough for another meal and it was only $15.00. The drinks were very good and the bartender and waitress were top shelf. I don’t take picture because I can’t stand to see people on their cell phones while they are trying to eat. I guess I am out of the loop!!!!

Went to 42 degrees north in plymouth with my mother and sister it was delicious as always 42degrees2we started with the mussels in white wine no picture as we dug right in we always get them and the were perfect as usual! My sister got a crock of there french onion soup and the appetizer eggplant napoleon as her meal they both were very good only gripe was she found two pieces of onion skin in the soup. My mother got the stalter chicken with mushroom bacon risotto and spinach it was delicious. I got the beef short ribs with root vegetables and mashed potatoes they were melt in your mouth tender. We go there often and always leave full and happy drinks were yummy as well my mother had her tried and true bacardi and diet I got a red sangria and Moscow mule my sister had a specialty drink and a Moscow mule if you haven’t been yet you need to try it!

We ended up going to 42 Degrees North tonight. It was phenomenal!! We got lucky with 2 seats at the outdoor bar and our bartender was awesome!! The drinks, food and service were 12002905_10153140000879856_4824076722907453701_nincredible!!! We shared the antipasto board for an app and both got 2 lb baked stuffed lobsters. There were 4 claws, shrimp and scallops and the entire tail in the lobsters. I couldn’t even touch my sides. Enough of everything left over for tomorrow nights dinner. We’ll definitely be going back!!

Being a weekend we included our men in today’s adventure. Looking for outdoor seating on a beautiful day we went to Plymouth, and had seen good reviews on 42 Degrees N. We hadn’t thought about whether it was on the water (it wasn’t) but they DID have lobster roll on the menu. 3 out of 4 of us ordered it. Ok, SO FAR- THE BEST! Grilled hotdog roll, small amount of mayo and celery- not quite undetectable, thin chives/a seasoning or herb, not quite sure but GREAT flavor. Little bit juicy, tender, felt much fancier yet true to itself than the others that now in comparison felt more “fast food” or “take out”. Of course In fairness, having a fun summer cocktail with it may have helped give it an edge- we did say in a previous post that atmosphere may sway our opinion. Haylee our waitress was great, and dealt well with our silly selves- good for you Haylee!! All in all our rolls were fabulous, only thing that could make it more perfect would be being oceanfront- ok, well Ruth may have liked less claw but overlooked that because of flavor. A side note, appetizer calamari was decent, beet salad with pistachio and goat cheese lovely, dessert decent, company excellent as always!

Where to Dine on the Scituate WaterFront Restaurant Oro

Located in the heart of Scituate harbor, Restaurant Oro offers fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere, where the highest quality ingredients from local farmers and fresh seafood  are selected and showcased.  10574477_927256597291574_1721829872371227394_n

Jill and Robin King met only miles from where ORO is located. After college they headed west where they discovered their passion for food and entertaining. Jill began as a manager at Copper Mountain while Robin worked at the cozy Café Alpine in Breckenridge.

Their love of the East coast brought them home to work in Boston. Jill at the Boston landmark Top of the Hub, Robin to Hingham’s famed Tosca under chef Kevin Long and then to work under acclaimed Chef Jamie Mammano at Mistral.

A few years later their dreams took them west again, only this time to sunny Santa Barbara. The two teamed up for the first time to run Epiphany restaurant, owned by Kevin Costner. This is where they developed a true style for cooking with local fresh ingredients. This could have been home but their families were just too far away. Jill and Robin decided it was time to head HOME. Jill at the famed South End Bistro, Aquitaine. Robin opened Stella Restaurant working under star chef, Evan Deluty. Inspired to start their own dream, they moved to the south shore to open Restaurant ORO in Scituate, MA.

Here is the Swampie buzz of    Restaurant Oro    in Scituate

Mom and I went out to lunch yesterday at Oro in Scituate Harbor yesterday. What a delightful meal! I had their Pad Thai, the most interesting version I’ve ever had, with their own home made delicious spicey hot sauce, Mom had the Fish Tacos, and we both had the Lemon Squares for dessert. Delightful is too light of a word. One of the chefs is a friend of mine, full disclosure. Go check them out!

Went to Oro in Scituate last night. Ate at the bar and start to finish it was an excellent meal.
Started with cocktails-both the spicy cucumber margarita and the botanical infused vesper were excellent.  Two of us shared the charcuterie tray. All the usual suspects but two things of note. One, they had thick cut bacon on the tray. Wow, perfect addition. Second the crostini were freshly toasted and warm. Very simple but so many places don’t do it and they should.
For our mains I had the lobster cake which was moist, tender and full of lobster. The other 2 each had the misto de mare which was like an unconstructed sushi dish. Delicious albiet small so not for hearty appetites.  We split a nice bottle of Rose with our meal and as it wasn’t busy we were able to linger bit and catch up. Highly recommend.

Love Oro. Consistently great and inventive food; friendly staff and great bartenders. One of the best and most consistent restaurants  on the South  Shore!

One of the best restaurants anywhere. The pork confit is out of the world as is everything else. The staff is fantastic. I recommend to anyone.  Great for an anniversary or romantic night out

My husband and I just tried Oro last night for the first time. The food was delicious, staff friendly, and the atmosphere was nice. The carbonara meal that I had was simply amazing! It was a pleasure to meet Chef Robin as well. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Exceptional place! Chef Robin is a master with his recipes, cooking style, garnishes, and display. Everything is fresh, homemade and special. And as outstanding as the food is, the place is still approachable. The staff are friendly and the place is a perfect balance between relaxed, casual and fine dining. And it always has an outdoor fresh feel to it. Never stuffy. We love it.

Overall atmosphere is very cool…You can have a quiet, relaxing dinner there…Or if you are in the mood for more ‘interaction/buzz’, you can sit at their Bar and eat/drink, hang as long as you like!!:)”. It all just works together so nicely and I need to go more often tha I do;)”.

Date  night  at the Barker Tavern Scituate. Bloody’s, Oysters Rockefeller and Clams casino. Highly recommend

We went last night to Barker Tavern.
It was my first time here. The hostess remembered it was our anniversary and sat us right away.
Server brought over complimentary champagne for a toast (classy touch).
The food was very good and came out in a timely manner.
I had the baked oysters that had a creamed spinach and feta over it. Very good and filling.
I also had the 8 oz steak with a bernaise sauce asparagus and garlic mashed. All very tasty, steak was juicy and asparagus perfectly cooked.
My husband had the veal porkchop and the sautéed spinach which melted in your mouth I loved it. He could not decide on sauce so server was very nice and gave him 2 to try at no charge.
The only thing I will say is there was really no ambiance and there was a speaker in the restaurant that was playing the radio but it played commercials and there was talking which I thought was very odd to have while you were eating dinner (very small thing just distracting to hear a voice talking from a speaker).
All in all very reasonably priced meal good food. Just wished there was more of an atmosphere.

barker3We went to The Barker Tavern in Scituate for the first time yesterday. I called for a reservation but they didn’t have anything open in the dining room. I was told that the pub side was first come, first served. We got there around 5:30 and is was filling up quickly. The pub side has their own menu but last night they were only serving off the dining room menu. I had the seafood pasta with swordfish, 2 jumbo shrimp, and a lobster tail. It was in a cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes and greens; it was delicious! The picture didn’t come out so good because I dove right in and then tried to rearrange it to look pretty again; I failed. My husband ordered the chicken piccata and it came with artichokes and mushrooms (he hates mushrooms but has learned to get them on the side and give them to me!). He is really picky about his chicken and he said that this was tender and very good, not too thick. The waitresses on the pub side were attentive and look like they really enjoy working there, chatting up customers and joking. We will definitely go back to try the simpler pub menu and also try to get a seat in the dining room sometime!

Last night we went to the Barker Tavern in Scituate to celebrate our anniversary. The food, as always, was absolutely amazing. We had the raw bar and some dolmathes to start with a Caesar salad. I love that when you say you’re going to split it they bring it to you in 2 bowls. The hubs had their seafood casserole and I had my usual broiled swordfish. Amazing. Everything is seasoned perfectly and you can cut the swordfish with a fork. I love it. One thing we did comment on is how the place has changed. 17 years ago when we were planning our wedding, you got funny looks if you weren’t in a jacket or tie. Last night people were walking in in shorts and polo shirts. The service at the Barker is always excellent.

Went to Barker’s Tavern in Scituate the other night for our fourth visit in the last year. You will be hard pressed to find a better “fancy” restaurant south of Boston. The quality of our meals, the attentiveness of the staff (especially Sal), and the ambiance is unmatched. It is pricey, but the old expression rings true, ” You get what you pay for.”

Here are some Swampie  buzz of  East Bay Grille

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here this evening. What a beautiful spot. We’ve been by here so many times but this was our first time dining. Valet parking, indoor or Annivesary Dinner at East Bay Grille Plymouth Waterfront outdoor seating. We asked for an outdoor seat closest to the waterfront. For starters we had the calamari, clam chowder and a simple salad. The calamari was very good, delicious dip. Clam chowder was just ok, too seasoned for my taste with red bliss potatoes(skin on) and bacon. Not the best I’ve had but still good. The salad was definitely larger than your traditional side salad. I had the baked scrod with bread crumbs, a baked potato (salted) and green beans. Good portion and very fresh. My husband had the steak tips, rice and green beans. Cooked to his liking and well seasoned. No room for dessert. Definitely a great spot by the waterfront with a gentle breeze, perfect for any night out. No entertainment tonight but I hear they do on the weekends. Thanks for suggesting we had a great time!

Went to East Bay Grille tonight in Plymouth. I usually get the salmon salad, it’s my favorite thing on the menu; but tonight I had the steak tips, they were tender and delicious. Best of all was our server, Shannon, she was phenomenal; attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond.

My friend and I went to East Bay Grille in Plymouth for lunch today and the food and drinks were great!!! My friend had the mixed grille special and I had seafood saute both were excellent!!! The drinks were great and the waiter Michael was the best!!!

Went to East Bay Grille last night for date night. Sat in the bar side, in a booth. Had a great dinner. Chicken on the bone, asparagus, mash potatoes. Yum! My husband had the steak tips, mash and veggie mix. Yummy too! Great service and I love it down by the water. We walked around after dinner

We started with a Margarita for J and a Rum Boat for me.    We shared a delicious appitizer of Scallops wrapped in Bacon.  (Don’t you be counting my Bacon intake today!!!)eastbaygrill2
I had a wonderful piece of Chili Rubbed Salmon   with Basmati Rice and Broccolini.
Scrumptious.  The Broccolini was undercooked.  Joe had the Steak Tips  with Vegetable Rice and Green Beans.  The Green Beans were also too undercooked. The Tips were served slightly more well done   than the Medium he asked for,  but compared to the nursing home food  he has been eating, it was very good.  We shared a Chocolate Lava Cake
which disappointingly didn’t erupt and flow.

We went to East Bay Grille in Plymouth. OMG A+++++++. We started with the shrimp and scallops appetizer, lemon, oil garlic with sundried tomatoes, spinach and grilled cibata bread drizzled with balsamic goodness. I had the Sesame crusted Chilean Sea Bass with perfectly cooked sticky rice and sautéed kale mix with teriyaki sauce and mango salsa. Best meal ever. Hubby had the sirloin with blue cheese sautéed onions. Cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes and spinach. He loved it. The cucumber lime martini was perfect with my meal. Can not wait to go back. Great atmosphere, staff and location.

We ended up at the East Bay Grille in Plymouth. Two words: EAT HERE. Tourists and locals alike pack the place, and although there’s sometimes a wait, the food always compensates for the slight inconvenience… We sat outside on the patio that overlooks the water, it’s beautifully landscaped with plenty of flowers and some great Adirondack chairs to relax in, along with a covered bar area. The menu offers a wide variety of mouth watering starters along with a raw bar. Our group started with a few appetizers which consisted of clam chowder and risotto balls- all of the items were fresh, delicious and piping hot from the kitchen. Entrees consisted of fish and chips, fisherman’s platter and lemon/garlic chicken with ziti served with summer vegetables on the side. Entrees were fairly priced,service was above and beyond, atmosphere was fabulous and the food was incredible.

Lunch today is at east bay grille on Plymouth waterfront I got chicken Caesar salad wrap with eastbay3fries and my mother got pork tenderloin with pancetta and Brussel sprouts. Last day to get out for lunch during the week back to work Monday. Both meals were really good. I also had a bowl of beef barley soup which was absolutely delicious. The waitress was also awesome and quick.

Went to East Bay Grille last night. I got the heirloom tomato salad that was on special. It was giant slices of heirloom tomatoes with fresh mozzarella cheese over mixed greens with a bacon balsamic vinaigrette. It was delicious. My friend got the risotto balls and lettuce wraps. She said the lettuce wraps were fantastic but the risotto balls she thought were on the dry side. Fabulous presentation on all items. heirloom
The entertainment was a band (sorry don’t remember the name) they were very talented and sang a lot of 70’s tunes. It was fun just “people watching” everyone on the ddance floor!! smile emoticon A great time. I love it there.

Novara New Italian Restaurant in East Milton Square

Novara is a  new Italian Restaurant  has opened in East Milton Square.  It was recently previewed in The Boston Herald   It looks like a great place for date night or a girls night out.  I know some Swampies will heading there soon and we look forward to the reviews!

Novara New Italian Restaurant in East Milton Square New Kids on the Block crooner Jordan Knight bets ambitious Italian eatery Novara has the right stuff to make East Milton Square a destination dining hot spot.

The Grand openning was on Thursday  January 7th
Good food, quality service – what could be better? Whether you’re looking for an intimate meal or a place to gather with friends, Novara is the place to go for the best restaurant experience on the South Shore. Chef Tony DeRienzo uses Italian influences to infuse classic dishes with a hint of worldliness, making our menus fun, yet familiar. Our stylish and inviting space in the former State Theater of East Milton Square welcomes you to a quick, casual bite at the bar or to celebrate that special anniversary dinner.

Novara is named for DeRienzo’s ancestral hometown in the Piedmont region of northern Italy. His menu features modern interpretations of pan-­regional Italian comfort food classics with local New England accents. DeRienzo, a Brockton native, studied at Johnson & Wales before working for such Boston chefs as Tony Ambrose and Lydia Shire.

Kick off dinner with Tuscan white bean soup, Sicilian tuno crudo or ground chicken saltimbocca sandwich. Mangia housemade pasta, highlighted by “Nonna’s” spaghetti and meatballs — a savory pork, veal and beef recipe straight from DeRienzo’s mother Raffaela.

Entrees include whole bronzini with lemon zest tomato cream; beef tenderloin with leek gorgonzola mashed potatoes; and classic cioppino, an Italian-American seafood stew in light tomato and saffron broth. Novara also serves thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizzas.

Novara’s other star attraction is a cavernous dining room in the re-purposed former Milton Cinema, designed by Steve Todisco (best known for his work with Davio’s).

The gleaming space with bright white tiles boasts a large 50-seat Carrara marble island bar, 23-foot-high ceilings with exposed wood, steel and utilities, and a massive, 16-foot TV above the open kitchen that replicates an old movie thea­ter screen. The brick-lined patio will open when warm weather returns, offering the neighborhood’s only al fresco dining.

Swampies will be heading there soon so make sure you check back for the buzz!!

Anniversary Date Night Restaurant in Braintree MA Area

Swampies this was a popular thread about a special anniversary date night in the Braintree area.

Anniversary Date Night Restaurant in Braintree MA area

My anniversary is on Saturday  and we are going to the movies in Braintree. I have never gone to the Cheesecake Factory because I heard it is very crowded. Should I go? Or go somewhere else in the area?  

Most Swampies are not fans of the chain restaurants 

Here are some Swampies responses

Happy anniversary! I happen to really like the Cheesecake Factory but I wouldn’t think of it as a special occasion place. I would have to agree with those that recommend Stockholders in Weymouth.

Believe it or not, a lot of the food at Cheesecake comes in FROZEN, it’s made at another location. I’ve also enjoyed meals on special occasions at Bella’s in Norwell, Scarlet Oak in Norwell, and a place in Braintree square, the name eludes me…begins with an S…  (Sintra’s Braintree Square)

For an anniversary, Stockholders gets my vote. Top notch food, service. Cheesecake is a quick lunch, drink type place.

We just celebrated our anniversary sat Scarlet Oak Tavern and it was fabulous. Meat and seafood items.

It’s just another (over priced) chain restaurant… way better options out there – especially for a special occasion dinner!

Best place for a special (like an anniversary) dinner would be Ava Cucina in Cohasset for us. Small and cozy, family owned and operated and delicious Italian fresh cooked meals. My favorite is the ravioli in a gorgonsola cream sauce, another of my favorite meals from anywhere. Comes with chicken on the regular menu but if steak tips are on special get those on it instead! Perfect for a romantic meal!

On a side note. Did you pre buy your movie tickets? If not I recommend you do. It’s all assigned seating (and huge recliner seats) so you can just walk in right when the movie starts. We love Braintree Theater.
