Flora (Arlington, MA) and The Publick House (Sturbridge, MA )

Last month, we visited Old Sturbridge Village, and on the
recommendation of a colleague, had dinner at The Publick
. It was a very good meal, with nice ambiance, good service
and very good food. I had a unusual but very good tomato consomme as
an appetizer that stood out. The variety of breads provided with the
meal was also a very nice touch. For each dish, I've probably had
something similar and a little better somewhere else, but never as
consistently high quality dishes, and we had a very large meal,
sampling many things. Overall, highly recommended.

Earlier this month, Boston had its first winter href=>restaurant week, and we
tried Flora, in Arlington.
They even had a goat cheese souffle on their special menu, which I had
been craving. It was good, though pales in comparison to the souffle
I had at Maison Robert years ago. The food was all quite good and I
would certainly go there again though I'm not in any immediate rush.
