We packed a lot into this Labor Day weekend. On Saturday, we were on the road early and drove down to NYC for a Chinese banquet that evening (check out this video of how to de-bone a whole fish using nothing but spoons). We left early and came back to Boston and met up with Lisa and Jay for the Lobster Feast at Gargoyles in Davis Square.
Lisa and Jay live within walking distance of the restaurant, so instead of fighting for a parking spot in Davis Square, we parked on their street. It gave us a chance to visit with them and see what they have been doing with their house.
Lisa and Jay have been busy renovating a house in Somerville for the past few years. They have a fun and crafty approach to their decorating, have done an amazing job with the space and have documented their efforts for RainyDay Renovations. We've been meaning to writing it up at some point :-)
Our dinner reservations were not until 8PM, so we had time to unwrap a b'day present and to enjoy one of Jay's handmade mojitos. A perfect Summer cocktail before the stroll over to Gargoyles.
The LobsterFeast menu was not Gargoyles' standard offering for the evening. It was a Labor Day Weekend special and reservations had to be made ahead of time. The LobsterFeast started with a lobster pizza appetizer, followed by the main course of a 1.5lb boiled lobster and mussels , and ended with strawberry shortcake and a side dish of lobster ice cream. The fixed price of $65/couple also included a bottle of wine. It was an amazing deal and well worth the early drive back from NYC.
If you want advance notice of Gargoyles' dinner specials, get on their emailing list. The restaurant will be closed on Sept 7-9 for renovations, but will reopen with a new menu on Sept 10. We will definitely keep our eye out for their next special and hope to be back soon! [Permalink] - LobsterFest at Gargoyles
