Every year on new year’s eve my family and I go out for a fancy dinner. The last two years we have gone to No. 9 Park which is an amazing restaurant right on the Boston Common. On new year’s eve they have a fixed tasting menu including a delicious mediterranean sea bass crudo, an aromatic parsnip agnolotti with winter truffles, and a duet of duck served roasted and confit. I’ve never met a duck confit I didn’t love; it’s the best way to serve duck, in my opinion.
While we were there one of the staff came up to me and asked if I was the Junior Sartorialist and it made me feel realy cool because he recognized me and my bowtie.
As an added touch, at the end of the meal, they gave the patrons boxes to take home; the boxes had a bloody mary mix and a wonderful scone and the menu of each person’s dinner. Since each person’s dinner was different, depending on the choices and substitutions they made, they had to carefully plan who to give which box. No. 9 Park definitely goes up as one of my all-time favorite restaurants.
