lion's tail

Named as one of the hottest new restaurants in Boston, Lion's Tail is a speakeasy-style spot that opened its doors to the public in December of 2016. The vibe is very chill and the decor is cozy, more like an upscale pub with leather bounded seats and great lighting in their bathroom. A few nights ago, Gu and I had the pleasure of having dinner at Lion's Tail and we can't rave enough about our experience.

I asked Jarek to make me the prettiest cocktail and he made me the New York Streets Swizzle; caramelized pineapple-infused plymouth gin, alessio bianco, quinquina, fino sherry, mint syrup, mint and lemon. It was absolutely delicious and I'm all about light and refreshing drinks in the Summer.

We started off with the Steamed Littlenecks with crispy pork belly crumbs, tomatoes, corn, arugula, lemon cream and grilled bread that's perfect for dipping in the lemon cream. Great to share or if you don't like sharing, like me, have it all to yourself! (But of  course, I shared with Gu)

For entree, I originally wanted the salmon but since they get their products fresh early in the morning for the day, they ran out. I decided to go for their Hanger Steak. Served with collard greens, potato salad, crispy onions, and coke-bourbon BBQ sauce. I can't even really begin to the describe how delicious my dish was. Each item complimented each other perfectly and it was the right amount to satisfy this tummy of mine.

Gu was beyond fulfilled with his Grilled Octopus. Served with warm fennel, quinoa and arugula salad, confit potatoes and lemon. I didn't get to try any of it because he devoured it 2 minutes after the plate touched the table.

For dessert, I ordered their Vanilla Bean Coconut Flan.I love flan and coconut, I think it's the Filipino in me. It was very smooth and served with strawberries and drizzled with caramel sauce.

Gu went for their other dessert option, their Ice Cream Sandwich. Fresh vanilla ice cream smacked between 2 chocolate chip cookies and drizzled with chocolate ganache.

A restaurant that's super affordable and serves unique dishes, Lion's Tail is spot that I will be sure to dine in again.
