A few weeks ago, I went to Justine’s Table in Wellesey with some blogger friends.
It is a white table cloth restaurant that opened in 2012. They serve seafood, pasta, beef, and chicken. I hadn’t heard about it until I was invited to go.
We decided to order a few (okay a lot) of appetizers for the table to try and then each ordered an entree.
I really wanted to try the crab cakes. I shared, but I really liked them. They were served with tartar sauce and fruit.
I order the grilled swordfish with capers and citrus butter, along with peas (vegetable of the day), and garlic mashed potatoes with pockets of gorgonzola cheese. Super rich, almost too much.
This is my first time having swordfish. I wasn’t sure what to expect. It wasn’t as flaky as other fish. It didn’t have a fishy taste or smell either.
Here is the rest of the dining room. It was a mid-week night and there were only a few other parties there, but they weren’t busy. Our server (I think his name was Justin) was very nice and explained everything to us. It was a little difficult to understand his descriptions of the food, but was very patient with us during our meal.
Currently, they are a BYOB (bring your own bottle) restaurant where they charge a corkage fee ($1.00 per beer, $3.00 per cocktail, and $6.00 per bottle of wine).
They are located near the Wellesley and Natick border, which isn’t very close to me, but it was a fun evening with great food.
I received this meal free of charge, but the opinions here are my own.
