David Phillips is the artist responsible for this sculptural piece, as well as all of the other hammered copper and bronze in the park, which harkens back to Charlestown's (and Nw England's) past when cod was the most important food.
We saw a fun band on Friday night on our swing through Kingston Station, a local group called Authentic Counterfeit. They had sort of a jazz/R&B thing going on - including a great rendition of Just the Two of Us - although their Facebook page hints at a much broader repertoire including Hip Hop, Rock, Alternative, Metal and more (!)
One of the most delicious and most artfully presented sushi in Boston, courtesy of Oishii in the South End. Above are two of their specialty rolls (Sockeye Salmon and Maki covered with Toro), below is an amuse-bouche of pureed edamame. We also started with the Tuna Mango with Baby Ginger and ended with the Chocolate Molten Cake. It's appropriate that the name translates to "delicious" in English. Oishii! おいしい
The living wall at Journeyman in Union Square, Somerville.
While the servers were pleasant and the space interesting, I was disappointed with the food and overall experience here. It had an unfinished/opening night feel to it, like it hasn't quite found its groove. And the menu, full of great seasonal items delivered in artful presentations, simply fell flat on flavor, consistency, and price (high for what you get). They do get props for an eclectic - and tasty - wine list, however.
