Via Matta
79 Park Plaza
Boston, MA 02116

Last birthday dinner of 2011! I didn't plan for all 8 dinners save for 94 Mass Ave (the big party) and Noche (day of) but some friends who couldn't make it wanted to indulge me with separate dinners so I'm very lucky indeed :)

This was not my first time at Via Matta so I knew I was in for a treat when B suggested celebrating there (thank you!). This time I didn't have their delicious pasta and opted for the cod instead. Although the fish was grilled perfectly, it wasn't salted enough so my dining experience was non-optimal. B loved her pasta Bolognese though and in a moment of deja vu, I was reminded that I proclaimed Via Matta better for pasta the last time I was here as well. Our cocktails were so-so (not pictured); service was attentive and friendly.

Diver Scallop Crudo with zucchini pearls, plum, mint and crispy lentils-could use more sodium and acid.
Line-Caught Cod with lobster, local shellfish, wilted romaine and sea urchin emulsion-Same as above.
Tagliatelle alla Bolognese-One of the best pasta B has tried!
Via Matta's Almond Tiramisu-I liked the delicate almond flavor, which was a nice variant of the classic.
Panna Cotta with mango and chilli pepper flakes-Perfect for the summer!
