A Hidden Gem I'm almost reluctant to write this review because I don't want to see this place get too popular. So, the girlfriend and I had a pretty disastrous experience trying to get dinner at Del Frisco's in the Back Bay (go read my review of THAT… . Long story short, we walked out of there without having been seated. So now it's 9:00, and we're hungry as all get out. A friend had told me about this place called "The Colonial" that was in a residential neighborhood, and that you'd never find if you weren't looking for it. So on a whim, we called them. The person I talked to said the kitchen would still be open when we got there, so we went. My friend was not wrong. If I hadn't been looking for this place, I never would have found it, and I love that. I love these little out of the way places that are real neighborhood joints, and haven't gone crazy with marketing and branding and all that corporate stuff that restaurants are supposed to do if they want to make money. I had calamari and a cup of chowda (note for non-Bostonians: "chowda" is the correct spelling.). The calamari was nice and crispy, and the squid was not at all rubbery or anything. The chowda? I've had better, but honestly, after the Del Frisco's fiasco, it was really, really satisfying. The GF had mahi-mahi, which looked good, and judging by the way she snarfed it down, couldn't have been too bad. But what really made this place feel so good last night was the service. It was everything that Del Frisco's wasn't. Our waitress was a very sweet woman who chatted warmly with us, and the food was out fairly quickly, despite the fact that the kitchen must have been starting to close down. Best part? It's about a mile from our house. So, I don't know how to rate the food, really. I enjoyed it, but I wasn't being super critical. It was warm, it tasted good, and it got my blood sugar out of the "hangry" zone. If I go there under different circumstances would my opinion change? I don't know. Maybe. But I'm giving them four stars because regardless of whatever flaws the place may have, last night, they were our savior and refuge. After the corporate shenanigans at Del Frisco's, it was like coming home to mom's. I will definitely be back. Hopefully my opinion won't change. But for now, I'm a fan.
