Boston Restaurant Blog -- August, 2005
Friday, August 26, 2005
A new restaurant is coming to Boston very shortly, and there is much talk about the place, as a well-known chef from an upscale South End restaurant has started this place up. It is called the Ashmont Grill, and its location is in the Ashmont Hill section of Dorchester. Now, before you say, "Dorchester?" you need to know that this sprawling Boston neighborhood has a lot of great restaurants now, from CF Donovan's to Pho So 1 Boston to Common Ground to Pho Hoa to Venezia, and many more. And now, the Ashmont Grill, a restaurant that is already creating a lot of buzz.
Word is that the Ashmont Grill will be serving mostly casual American cuisine and pub food, from burgers and wings to steak and seafood. Entrees at the Ashmont Grill will be reasonably priced to cater to this mostly middle- and working-class neighborhood of Dorchester. The Ashmont Grill will apparently NOT be an upscale bistro for people who want to be seen, as so many restaurants are in other parts of Boston are these days. That, in itself, is very refreshing, and makes me want to be one of the first to try the Ashmont Grill out when it opens.
I haven't been this excited about a new restaurant in a long time. I'm looking forward to heading over to Dorchester to try the Ashmont Grill. Hopefully, I'll be back on the blog soon with a favorable report of the restaurant. Stay tuned!
By the way, for those who want the address of the Ashmont Grill, it is: Ashmont Grill, 555 Talbot Avenue, Dorchester, MA 02124, and the phone number is (617) 825-4300.
