“Upscale but not uptight, this well-managed Kendall Square star still shines after all these years with unsual ingredients and detailed wine list; come Sunday for the incredible brunch buffet that is much better than you deserve for the price.”
"Always wonderful and innovative, even after all these years. Especially in the summer when you can sit outside and spend all evening enjoying a bottle from the excellent wine list."
"@eatatblueroom Phenomenal! Loved every bite! Had the shrimp & chorizo, so good!"
