Tonight we went to Ribelle in Brookline and we had food that was both extraordinary and unique. Our dishes included gnocchi with lobster fra diablo and brussels sprouts and some of the best pork chop in mushroom ragout ever. We started with garlic knots, kale in quinoa and oyster crema, and a vegan carrot with hazelnut purée that changed my entire perspective on carrots!
My favorite part of the restaurant was the vibe. The walls were covered in grass cloth wallpaper and the chandeliers were sculptural and reflected light around the common table that accommodated us as walk-ins. Their public materials says that they take reservations, but that walk-ins are their favorites, and we felt that way for sure.
For desert we went a little off script. I got the coffee cake, but my brother ordered the truffle egg bread from the appetizer menu. That dish could serve as breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
