Hey you guys!!!!
Big announcement — we have a new restaurant within walking distance of RP!
Management & I checked out Cook on Saturday night and I must say, we had a really lovely dinner. Cook opened about 6 weeks ago and describes itself as “an approachable, fun American bistro.”
First, when you walk in this place you feel like you’re downtown. I wanted to walk back out the door and make sure we were still in Newtonville. Lofty, kind of industrial feel with open pizza kitchen and great bar scene. 3 Flat screen TVs for hombres like me that want to watch the game.
Great apps that include lobster sliders & popcorn with caramel & bacon. Wait… you can put bacon on popcorn? Apparently so. They also have a crafty cocktail menu and a few local beers on tap.
We sat at the bar and I had the burger with cheddar and truffle fries. Let’s put it this way: I know my way around a burger and this thing was primo. Management got the chorizo flat bread pizza with fingerling chips — which she gave 2 thumbs up. The salads, flat-iron steak and bolognese all looked delish too.
Overall, fun new spot for dinner or drinks. Casual atmosphere with upscale food. A bit more expensive but worth it. Reservations recommended — this place gets crowded.
