    Few chefs do both upscale and low-key fare as well as Craigie’s Tony Maws. Nor do many offer them side by side, as he does at his Cambridge restaurant. Read more

    Average food. The ribs were fried for no apparent reason and also garnished with jalapeño peppers. Crispy fresh bread with butter, complimentary cooky, but other than these perks the menu is dull.

    They only make 18 burgers a day. So, if it's why youre coming call first to see if they have any left!

    Been here too many times b/c now I have complaints. Savory yes but Waaay too salty- oysters were gagable. Out of hamburgers??? Whatever. Rice was butter overload to the point of gagable 2.. C'mon Tony

    Chef Tony Maws continues doing what he does best, preparing seasonal/local (ish) product with utmost reverence using classic French technique.
