Eat at These Restaurants This Weekend

A few dining recommendations to liven up your long weekend.

First, some new spots to check out. (And find even more on the January Heatmap.)

  • The Table at Season to Taste: Craigie on Main alum Carl Dooley continues to move through Top Chef unscathed, and he just opened up a new restaurant in collaboration with Robert Harris of Season to Taste, a catering company in Cambridge. You won't have to make too many decisions: It's a four-course contemporary French prix fixe menu ($65) with two choices per course. Citrus pavlova or dark chocolate marquise?
  • Little Big Diner: Boisterous and cozy, this is your brand new Newton destination for hearty rice bowls, flavorful ramen, and refreshing cocktails on draft. Don't miss the grilled and glazed Berkshire pork belly ssam, nestled on pieces of bibb lettuce and topped with kimchi and crunchy rice.
  • Villa Mexico Cafe: It's back! The beloved burrito-shop-in-a-gas-station now has its own space downtown to meet all your grilled burrito and black salsa needs.

And some oldies but goodies.

  • East Coast Grill: The clock is ticking. This Inman Square classic will shutter on January 23 after 30 years.
  • Machu Chicken: For eight bucks, eat a quarter chicken, charcoal-roasted, with a salad and a side of your choice (plantains, rice, potatoes, etc.) Wash it down with pineapple juice, and call it a day. Easy.

And — in case you don't want to leave the house — these restaurants have newly launched delivery.
