There are two farmer's markets in Lower Dot! The Milton Village Farmer's Market (just over the bridge from Dorchester - behind the store fronts on Adams Street) takes place every Thursday from 1 - 6. The Fields Corner Farmer's Market takes place in the Orlando's Food Basket parking lot on Saturdays from 9 - noon.

Wine Club at the Ashmont Grill

We finally made it to the much acclaimed "Monday Night Wine Club" at the Ashmont Grill. Wine Club offers a four-course meal paired with four wines (and on occasion beer...). We went on Portugal wines night and enjoyed a wonderful meal with Portugese flavored dishes such as bacalhau (salted codfish), clams, grilled beef, and o bolo de chocolate (decadent chocolate cake). Along with each dish is served a wine with a description. The wine flowed, Erin couldn't finish it all, but Chris did. Wine Club tries to create a social atmosphere so you may get seated with other guests, but it seemed inconsistent. (It might be nice if they gave you the choice...) Wine Club starts at 6:30pm on Mondays and costs $30.

News: Haitian Restaurant Opens in Fields Corner

We love Haitian food, so it is great news that a new Haitian restaurant called Belle Cuisine is now open in Lower Dot. The Dorchester Reporter says that the restaurant is owned and run by Antoine Dorcena, a former Boston University cook and owner of a catering business called Leave It To Us. If the restaurant is up to Lower Dot expectations then expect a review in the next few months. Until then consider checking them out and let us know what you think.
