Upper Dot Adventure: Shanti

One of the best Indian restaurants in the city makes its home here in Dorchester! Shanti is located in the Savin Hill section of the neighborhood and offers both a great atmosphere and a fairly-priced wide-variety of cuisine. The Naan (which comes in several different types) is a must and the perfectly fried Samosas are perfectly prepared. Erin loves the wonderfully marinated Tandoori Chicken, while Chris prefers the Goat Gosht Curry, but almost everything on the menu is definitely worth a try. They have a great beer and wine selection, and the wait staff is excellent.
1111 Dorchester Avenue, Dorchester
Located in Savin Hill at the intersection of Dorchester Ave, and Savin Hill Avennue. Just west of the Savin Hill T stop.

The Carruth Near Completion

The Carruth building is near completion. The transit-oriented development will include condominiums, apartments, and retail space (see our other blog entry: The Carruth). The building held its open house on Saturday and Sunday (March 8th and 9th) where many local businesses and organizations had displays. Flat Black Coffee Company (who will have a cafe in the building) and Tavolo (a new Italian eatery in the building) handed out delicious samples for visitors and there was even a DJ. The condos were amazing inside, and if you would like to see for yourself, images are available at the building's website:
