City Table restaurant review

On Friday night, after getting our “first course” at Lucca, Adam and I headed down to Newbury St in search for another restaurant with a nice looking bar and bar food. Apparently on a Friday night, everyone is out and wants to do the same thing. Who knew? 😉 Every place we tried was completely packed, so we made our way down to Boylston St. Somehow we came across an unfamiliar restaurant sign – City Table. What’s that? We soon found out they opened just a few days ago!

There were no seats at the bar, but we decided to get a little table (close to the bar) anyway. This bar hopping idea would work much better on a weeknight :) I started with a glass on Pinot Noir (not sure what kind – the waiter recommended it; it wasn’t on the wine list we were provided) that somehow escaped my camera.

Then it was time to eat – my favorite! 😉 Adam and I decided to each get an appetizer that we’d then share.

I chose the fig and duck prosciutto flat bread pizza


This was really incredible! The dough was so doughy (wow I have my way with words, don’t I? 😉 ) and chewy, the tomato sauce was very subtle but the fresh mozzarella and the sweet figs just made for a perfect match – creamy and sweet. There were a few little chunks of duck prosciutto that were too salty and nearly nonexistent anyway so they didn’t really matter. The dough + cheese and figs made me want to squeal with excitement. Absolutely amazing!!

Adam chose the chicken drummettes – dark rum glaze, lime dipping sauce


These were delicious too. Very sweet and sticky but delicious. The lime dipping sauce actually tasted nothing like limes and was more like a sour cream dip that balanced out the sweetness of the drummettes (fancy, huh?) quite well.

Two great appetizers! We’ll be back to City Table for sure!
