Beacon Hill Bistro: Local Prix-Fixe for Locals, Sun-Thurs

In Food on June 15, 2010 at 10:12 am


Well, readers, you’re in for a treat.

Today and tomorrow’s posts feature photography by the illustrious Amy Meier, who came into town last week to whip the interior design work she’s done in our house into photo-shoot-shape.  (So yes, you’ll eventually see our home in her portfolio,  here.)

Somewhere in the midst of the wholesale flower market, an emergency trip to the framers, and hunting for accessories and hardware, we squeezed in lunch at Beacon Hill Bistro.

Few dining experiences are more satisfying than a bistro doing the bistro thing – and only the bistro thing – ridiculously well.  We couldn’t have been happier with our beet salad and croque madame.  The beet salad is actually my shot; it’s sullying the visual waters, I know, but the layers of beet mousse and that dollop of ricotta deserve representation.

On our way out we noticed the sign for their “Local for Locals” dinners:  farm-fresh dining with many vegetarian options Sun-Thurs. Choose two courses for $25.00, three for $32.00 or a four-course menu for $38.00.

Yes, this last one is mine, too.  More pretty Amy pictures tomorrow.
