Study opened at the end of 2014, granting Cambridge's unspoken wish for a cheese cart and ever-changing tasting menus. Physically connected to its sibling Ames Street Deli, which popped out of the restaurant womb just a few weeks prior, Study features sleek lines with a striking red accent, plus some stately moss.
Prior to the opening, the Study team promised an "elegant and lovely" restaurant under the watchful eye of chef de cuisine Jon Sanchez, an alum of Thomas Keller's Bouchon. The tasting menus, which change daily, feature simply-named courses ("carrot," "rabbit," "pork") and descriptions consisting of three ingredients of the dish. The aforementioned carrot course, for example, is described as "surf clam, arugula, black garlic."
A robust wine list travels from Italy to France and beyond, touching on a wide variety of price points. There are even some hard-to-find orange wines. Plus, sherry lovers can try the "sherry shebang," a $25 sampling consisting of one ounce of every sherry on the list.
Study serves dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
