The newest eatery to open in Lower Dot, it offers another upscale dining option to the neighborhood. Erin had the broiled crab cakes on top of mixed greens which were large and tasty and accompanied by a strong mustard aioli. Chris had the hanger steak with caramelized shallot blue cheese butter sauce and a side of sweet potato fries and herbed orzo. The sauce was an excellent compliment to the well-cooked steak's flavor. We did not have the most desirable seats, right next to the crowded bar, but this is expected when a restaurant first opens. The restaurant interior is hip and modern, and the many televisions in the bar area are almost overwhelming. It would be a great place to catch a Sox playoff game. The back patio is large and offers a separate bar, we can't wait to go back an enjoy it on a warm fall evening.
2261 Dorchester Ave., Dorchester
Located on Dorchester Ave. Just north of the Milton T stop (Ashmont-Mattapan Trolley).

Somehow we missed the opening of a new restaurant just over the river from Lower Dot. We were just informed that 88 Wharf Riverfront Grill, a new contemporary American restaurant in the Milton Landing building, not only is open for business, but also has patio seating overlooking the Neponset River and the town of Milton's first restaurant liquor license. I guess we have another place to visit real soon. If the restaurant is up to Lower Dot expectations then expect a review in the next month or so. Until then consider checking them out and let us know what you think.

People have been writing in to let us know that Ledge, a new restaurant and bar in Lower Mills, has officially opened. We are still suffering some jet lag from a trip to Japan, so we may take advantage of this and check the place out in the next few days. If the restaurant is up to Lower Dot expectations then expect a review in the next week or so. Until then consider checking them out and let us know what you think.
