We were very excited to get a nice table and fantastic waitperson on date night, a weeknight but the place was bustling with the hungry young Cambridge crowd. The wine recommendation was great and things got off to a great start. Then the food arrived - creative recipes and flavorings offered adventures for the palate... if not completely over-salted. We ordered one entree, and the rest were small plates to explore preparations and everything was overhwelmingly over-salted. I am not just talking "oh that's a little salty" but more like hours later, your mouth feels like a parched New England back road in February after the plow truck went by. It's really a shame because some of the preparations shoulda/coulda/woulda been delicious under all that salt, I think.
Oh and debone the skate wing, or serve it whole as an entree - breaking it up into small pieces fragments the cartilage rays and turns them into little spikes which impale your mouth on every bite. I even debone skate wing at home, it's not that hard.
I saw the dude at the server station taking bites off plates - maybe he should reject things that are over-salted. That would have been most of my orders. Our waitress was the highlight of the night, I felt bad that her service was compromised by the kitchen.
