As you know from reading this, I love all things beauty. Makeup, skin care, nail polish, clothing … the list goes on. But you know what I think is equally, if not more, beautiful? A well-crafted cocktail and food I just can’t stop eating even if I’m bursting at the seams. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
So imagine my delight when I was invited with some of the other lovely Boston bloggers to enjoy a complimentary night of drinks, tasty treats and laughs at Kennedy’s on the Square. Located in historic Harvard Square, KOTS coins itself as a “gastropub with tantalizing cocktails & craft beers.” The interior is filled with rich leather booths and cozy, dim lighting. It’s the perfect setting in which to share gossip with your friends over a plate of grass-fed sliders and a couple of Vault martinis.
Over a couple of hours, we downed cocktails and gorged ourselves on a mix of apps, entrees and desserts. Before we get in to the food, I wanted to apologize for the lack of corresponding pictures. My camera died because I forgot to charge my battery and all the phone pictures I took turned out blurry. Once the other bloggers post their articles, I’ll link them here.
My favorite app was hands-down the grass-fed sliders, which were served on potato buns. The meat was tender, juicy and perfectly seasoned. For an entree, I enjoyed the Sausage pizza, which was equally as delicious. The crust was a bit too thin for my personal preference, but it was still amazing. The combination of lamb sausage, feta cheese, pomegranate, molasses and mint was perfection.
To round out the night, I had a bite of three desserts – the bread pudding, Nutella creme brûlée and flourless chocolate cake. All were enjoyable, but my favorite was the bread pudding. I just went back to look for a description of the bread pudding, but didn’t see it on the dessert menu, so I guess the menu changes regularly? Regardless, if you go and they are offering the bread pudding, make sure to put in an order … and then bring it to me 😉
If you can’t tell from my post, I had an amazing time and I would definitely go back. It strikes me as more of a place to go with friends for drinks and a shared meal than a place for an formal dinner, but to each their own. And you know what’s even better? There is a sister restaurant, Kennedy’s Public House, in Norwood out near me. I can go any night I please. Win, win!
If you do happen to spend some time at KOTS, come back to let me know what you thought!
