It was the first huge snowstorm of 2013. It was in fact still heavily snowing when I left for Craigie. I was glad I journeyed through the foot of snow to get to Craigie. Inside, I was first greeted by the hostess, standing in front of the open kitchen bustling with activity. I was quickly taken to my table, where the Lady of the Table was patiently waiting. Craigie quickly replenishes the bread basket, so be careful to not fill yourself up on it! We had the six course chef's tasting menu with the theme around fish. Overall, I thought most (not all) of the dishes were great. Tony even came out of the kitchen to bring us our last dish. As with most restaurants though, I thought the dessert was so-so. Regardless, I will definitely return.

I had the opportunity to enjoy one of their amazing burgers the other day. Normally I'm a little wary of grass-fed beef burgers (dry and low on flavor, due to the lack of fat) but Craigie knocks it out of the park. Burger was super moist, had great flavor and the condiments complicated it perfectly. One of the best burgers I've ever had. I also recommend calling ahead to make sure they still have burgers available, they tend to run out pretty early in the evening.

Wow, this was awesome. The chef is always there or what? We were served by a dozen people, that is a great service move. I loved the food, worth the price? I wish I could go more often. Enough said.

The Local Grass-Fed Beef Burger at Craigie on Main is one the hardest burgers to get in the United States. A secret menu item limited to only 18 burgers a night. I showed up early to wait to enjoy this combination of Shelburne Farm cheddar, mace ketchup, house-made bun, and house-smoked bacon. The bun is tender, beef is juicy, bacon is salty, and the pickles pack a punch. The onions are sliced thin, which is good for the texture. The final toppings on the burger are a melted slice of cheddar...and some lettuce which may be better left off (however it added a splash of color for my photo). My only issue with my burger was that the house-smoked bacon was a little tough (almost like beef jerky), however I loved its peppery flavor. All of these flavors work together brilliantly and the taste of the meat is the star. The meat is very juicy, tender and perfectly cooked. The ketchup, pickles, cheese, and bacon create a savory palette that complements but never overpowers the beef. This is probably one of the best burgers in Boston, and one of the best in the country if the bacon was not so tough like the burger I experienced.

Just found the place by chance. The six course menu was a real revelation. Definitely worth a visit. Although we instantly got a table, a reservation is a good idea.

The most amazing upscale food in Boston, local fresh ingredients, creative meals that showcase the ingredients, absolute perfect preparation. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic service that is up to par with the quality of the food without being snobby about it. Excellent bar.
