After a hiatus of more than three months, it seems fitting for me to resume blogging with a post about the Ashmont Grill. For Barbara and me it has become our go-to restaurant at least twice a month. It probably doesn’t hurt that they know us there, and we know them, but all that would be insufficient if it weren’t for the quality of the food. The picture below shows one of their amazing new dishes, a tuna sashimi tartine, which the menu describes as “puff pastry, tomatoes, green beans, fingerlings, soft boiled egg, garlic-anchovy vin,” but it’s much better than that. It’s as delicious as it is beautiful. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
