A longtime Medfield restaurant that closed briefly to reinvent itself debuted its spanking new concept last week. Nosh & Grog Provisions is now open in the former Zebra’s Bistro and Wine Bar, with chef Joshua Bottini in charge in the kitchen.
After 17 years of Zebra’s, owner Craig Neubecker decided it was time for a change. Nosh & Grog moved away from the white tablecloth, fine-dining concept towards an approachable place with quality food. "I’m really excited about having a restaurant that is now in that format that I like to eat," Neubecker previously told Eater.
The space underwent some renovations and now features a dining room, a bar, and a patio, with exposed brick and an industrial feel, with lighting fixtures Neubecker built himself. The U-shaped bar is a focal point of what was once three divided spaces, and there is artwork from a local gallery on display.
Bottini’s new menu for the restaurant plays off the seasons of the region, showcasing local ingredients. Some of his menu items include beer-battered shrimp with lime, avocado, cilantro, parsley, and paprika; sage potato dumplings made with dry vermouth, slow and low tomato sauce, and parmesan; smoked mussels; fried chicken; and a mozzarella salad with marinated tomato, balsamic syrup, basil, and arugula.
There is also one dessert: a fried dough with assorted toppings.
The beverage program includes cocktails, beer, and wine. Nosh & Grog Provisions is open from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 4:30 to 9 p.m. on Sunday.
