A few weeks ago I talked about a great experience I had at the Poynt restaurant in Newburyport so when I heard the owners had another restaurant near my work I knew I had to try it. Located in Linden Square Wellesley, The Cottage Restaurant is in a prime suburban location with access to boutiques, cafe’s and more.
For appetizers we had mini crab cakes and beef tenderloin crostini. The crostini was made with whipped herbed goat cheese and a sweet onion jam which I enjoyed.
1st course was a goat cheese salad with caramelized walnuts roasted red peppers and a light balsamic vinaigrette. The salad was very simple but the walnuts really made it shine.
2nd course was lamb bolognese Rigate made with slow braised lamb. This dish was very hearty and delicious making it a great comfort meal for these cold days.
My favorite dish of the night was this delicious Chicken Milanese made with a crispy chicken cutlet, shaved fennel arugula salad, grape tomatoes lemon and thyme vinaigrette. I promise you will love this dish, just writing about is making me want to get in my car and go to have some.
Of course every meal has to end with delicious deserts. We got to sample the chocolate souffle cake, the white chocolate raspberry bread pudding and a delicious cheesecake. Yummy!
The Cottage Wellesley is only 10 miles outside Boston so if you would like to experience these delicious dishes its definitely worth the drive. Not forgetting that you can also do some shopping in the area while you are at it.
