The Restaurant I Ate at Last Night II
As thanks for serving as my box hostel for, gosh, I don't even know how long, I took Anni and Jonathan -- and Alex -- out for dinner last night at Cuchi Cuchi on Central Square. The decor is amazingly stylish yet comfortable, the cocktails and mixed drinks (especially the Dirty Little Secret) are to die for, and the food -- while a tad on the pricy side -- is absolutely delicious and extremely well presented. Cuchi Cuchi is a relatively upscale tapas restaurant, providing a nice addition to Dali and Tapeo.

What did we eat? A lot. Yet, given the small plates, not that much! On our menu: Duck shank, garlic shrimp, red curry shrimp, mashed potatoes, asparagus, risotto, trout, and... come on memory. Something else besides the wonderful crusty bread and duck pate. Whatever. Remember: Cuchi Cuchi is a bit expensive. But not too expensive. And it's not that formal, although you can dress up as much as you want. Cuchi Cuchi is well worth checking out, even if just for a semi-special event such as, say, Buddha's birthday, which was Monday. Happy birthday, Buddha!
