“The Perfect Place to Be Young and Fabulous”

Colin Kingsbury reviews Nahita for Boston Magazine, offering a tongue-in-cheek take on the restaurant’s atmosphere, and calling it “the perfect place to be young and fabulous (or to pretend you still are).” Kingsbury finds winning dishes among the seafood, including the sashimi sampler and the sudado de pescado Chifa, or whole steamed fish, served in a ginger-soy broth. Straying from seafood, Kingsbury suggests certain dishes leave something to be desired, though he praises the restaurant’s suggested wine pairings and the “decadent” chocolate mousse parfait. Overall, Kingsbury gives Nahita one and a half stars.

A “Cozy” Cambridge Speakeasy

Marc Hurwitz reviews Joe Sent Me in Cambridge for the Dig. The bar leans into a speakeasy theme, creating a “cozy and comfortable” space where people can find “good food, decent drinks, and the type of atmosphere that’s about as far from the generic chains as you can get,” Hurwitz writes. For food, standouts at Joe Sent Me include burgers and wings that may stand among the best in Greater Boston, according to Hurwitz. The drinks are straightforward, with a mix of craft and mass-market beers, basic cocktails, and shots, and prices are reasonable (unless you’re tapping into the good whiskeys), Hurwitz writes.
