10/28/2013: New Newtonville Restaurant — Cook

Hey you guys!!!!

hey you guys gif

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.
