We live down the street and have been meaning to grab dinner here since we moved in. I'm so glad we finally made it because it was as good as we expected. The inside is warm and friendly but also has a funky atmosphere. The drinks are great weekly drink recommendations are always killer! I will say the appetizers deliver an amazing experience... almost so good we just want to order them all. The gnocchi with short rib Raggu and the arancini were to die for! We will definitely be back
Had dinner at Highland Kitchen on Saturday night. Ordered a bunch of appetizers and small plates and shared them amongst our group. This included the Handmade Potato Gnocchi, Mussels, Ricotta And Mozzarella Fritters, Buffalo Fried Brussel Sprouts, and Fried Calamari. Quality Highland Kitchen has a very interesting and eclectic menu. They definitely do not conform to one style, but most of the dishes seem like spins on classic items. Not wanting to commit to a single item, as a group we ended up selecting an assortment of dishes. First out for us was the Handmade Potato Gnocchi. Probably my favorite item of the evening, it was served with a short rib ragout as well as some parmesan. It was the short rib that really made the dish, as the tender meat paired extremely well with the gnocchi. Next was the Mussels, served in a wonderful coconut-curry-lobster broth. The mussels were fine, but the broth was excellent. I could have used more bread to sop up every drop. The Ricotta And Mozzarella Fritters were a fun item. I think they needed a bit more mozzarella and a bit less ricotta, but they still worked with the tasty dipping sauce. The Buffalo Fried Brussel Sprouts were probably the weakest dish. I thought the combination of buffalo sauce and brussel sprouts would work, but it just made them a mushy spicy mess. The Fried Calamari, was okay, but I would not order it again. I thought they used too much breading, and I would have liked them a bit crispier. Quantity After spending most of the day at a brewery, we were looking more to snack that to eat. Therefore, a bunch of small plates seemed like a good option. Three of us shared the five items and we all left more than satisfied. Value Since we stuck to the appetizers menu, none of our dishes cost over $12. The rest of the menu seemed very affordable as well, with most entrees in the $15 to $25 range. Ambiance Highland Kitchen is located in Somerville, Massachusetts, just north of Boston. It is found near a busy little intersection. When you enter they have a bar area to your left and then dining room to the right. The bar is fairly large, with a single television posted in the corner. The dining room is relatively big, however still not enough to satisfy all demand. Blackboards hang from many walls displaying both food and drink specials. The decor is pretty simple, aside from these strange light fixtures that hang from the ceiling. The music was alternative rock, but with the sounds from the kitchen as well as the large crowd, it was difficult to hear anything. Crowd Highland Kitchen was an extremely busy spot on Saturday night. We seemed to arrive at the perfect time, as several tables had just gotten up, so we were able to sit down almost immediately. The folks that arrived after us were not quite as lucky. Unfortunately they do not allow reservations, so you may have to wait a bit for a table. Service Despite being busy, they were able to quickly find us a place to sit. Our server was at our table almost immediately and the food came out surprisingly fast. An excellent job on a night where the crowd easily could have slowed things down. Parking Limited street parking is available in the area. Keep an eye on signs if you do decide to drive, but I would recommend using a car service. Extra I feel like to get a full impression of Highland Kitchen I would have needed to dive into the entrees. The appetizers and small plates were hit and miss, but that would not deter me from visiting again.
Lovely cocktails, great vibe.
