All Hallow's Eve is in the rear view, but that doesn't mean it's the end of things wicked along the North Shore. On a blustery Tuesday night, Boston's finest Yelpers flooded the doors of Alchemy Tapas & Bistro for a formerly-finned feast made famous by National Geographic and exquisite by Executive Chef Scott Jensen.
Nestled in the cozy, rustic interior of the Duncan St hideaway, a full spread of charcuterie, bacon-wrapped dates and wild boar pops accompanied fresh-from-the-deep tuna plates, line caught from the guys of Nat Geo's Wicked Tuna. But the poke and blackened tartare were just the start, as the Alchemy staff carted out the photo-friendly cous de gras. Monique S has the scoop: "Then came the suckling pig. It was a feast fit for the king. The bread pudding was the perfect marriage of sweet and savory. The brussel sprouts were perfectly roasted. This was the first time I had rosti, and it won't be the last!"
To wash the feast down, Amy and crew crafted Ryan & Wood cocktails like the oh-so-scandalous apple and pumpkin tinged Cider House Rye, and MS Walker poured a little adult grape juice for attendees. Tatsu snapped amazing pictures found on Flickr, and ripe for tagging on Yelp's Facebook album, while five-star reviews continue to roll in. Stay toasty, my friends and if you need help, Yelp for socks!
