I have had the pleasure of eating here 3 times and each time is better than the last. Food is prepared very well and the flavors created are absurdly fantastic. I always recommend this place to anyone interested in hearing.

Puritan & Company is just my sort of place. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, the food is exceptional, the sound level gives it a lively and energizing feel, and I love the long bar and the little touches that give the place the comfort of the farmhouse, but with a hip city feel. Try the Peak Organic beer brewed with ginger, as it was made especially for the restaurant, and then try to figure out what on earth you're going to order because it all looks so inviting. We settled up the lamb belly (oh my goodness, so good), the outstanding duck sausage, frisee with foie salad (farm egg, johnny cake, YUM, must try) and ended with the toll house cookie dough sundae. I swooned when happiness I saw that it had cherry "caviar" on top. If Boston keeps putting out places like this one, NYC, SF and Chicago will need to step aside and let our food god reign.

Food: 3, Wine: 2, Service: 3, Ambience: 1. This is a foodies place - we only had starters but they were all excellent and suitably winter oriented. The wine list is unusual in that it's /almost/ exclusively Mediterranean in style/region (I think there was 1 US red). That said, everything we had (by the glass) was very good. Service was outstanding: engaged, enthusiatic, knowledgeable, helpful. Ambience is a 1 because it was a tad noisy for us, and the tables felt a /touch/ too close together, although we never had to shout nor felt imposed upon by our neighbors so that's a nit really.

Never had a chance to eat because the restaurant's site said they close @ midnight but the hostess said that was only the bar. I asked why they didn't make that clear on the site and she just repeated that the time refers to the bar. Incredibly unhelpful.

I celebrated my birthday at Puritan & Co. this week and while I had a lovely evening, I was somewhat disappointed in the food. There's clearly some skill in their kitchen, but too many items were poorly executed. The sausage appetizer was a beef kielbasa that evening. The kielbasa itself was delicious, smoky and rich, but was hidden under a foam of some kind that looked like something that might wash up on the beach. Clam chowder consisted of four little clams and a few pieces of pork belly in a wonderfully creamy clam-infused broth. The only problem was, it was almost too salty to eat. My entree, the roast chicken, had the same problem. It has been brined to excess. I couldn't finish it. The parker house rolls were fantastic, with one small problem--the salt crust, which kept them from being a respite from the rest of the meal. The wine list was varied and reasonably priced, with a number of nice choices available by the glass. If they can get their execution to live up to the concept, Puritan & Co. could be my kind of restaurant. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Absolutely amazing dining experience, from the moment you walk in the door. Greeted by both hostesses, who were extremely friendly, got great seats at the Charcuterie Bar, and continued to receive friendly service from every staff member we interacted with. The food was timely, served hot + exactly as it was ordered, drinks were great in selection + taste. Pricing was actually better than expected - I assumed it would be relatively expensive because the quality of the food was so incredible, but the most you're looking at for an entree is about $30 - and you can definitely make do with ordering appetizers and other items. We had the Lamb Belly (heaven), the Bass collar (flavor was perfect), Foie Gras Torchon (my husband is not a fan of food like this usually but he tried it and admitted the taste was really great), and the Duck Leg special with the fried egg. Everything tasted really fresh and of good quality, with excellent presentation for each plate. Definitely recommend, and I'm thrilled we walked away with a bill of under $100, (including a beer each), because that means we'll be visiting even more than I planned. Very cozy, non-pretentious but still feels clean and respected.
