Carrie Nation Home Made Meatballs

Our Meatballs have become very popular and we thought what better way to start off the week than sharing a Carrie Nation favorite with you all!

  Total Prep time: About 55 minutes.                                                                     Ingredients you'll need:                                                                                         Ground Beef - 1/2 lb                                                                                             Ground Pork - 1/2 lb                                                                                             Garlic (Fresh/Pureed) - 2 cloves                                                                         Garlic (Roasted) - 1.6 oz                                                                                       Parmesan Cheese - 1 Cup                                                                                   Parsley (Chopped) - 0.2 Cup                                                                               Eggs (Whole) - 4 Eggs                                                                                         Smoked Salt - .2 Tbs                                                                                             Ground Black Pepper - .3 Tbs                                                                             Bread Crumbs (Fresh) - 2 Cups  

Now that we have all our ingredients we are ready to get to work!                              1. Assemble all needed ingredients for the recipe and prepare                         them as listed.                                                                                                     2. NOTE: Do NOT use Panko (Bread Crumbs) for this                                            recipe. Roughly grind fresh bread crumbs instead.                                      3. Place all the ingredients, except the ground beef and pork into                   the mixer.                                                                                                           4. Mix on low speed for approximately 3 minutes to fully blend the                   ingredients together.                                                                                         5. Add ground beef and pork. Mix on low speed for approximately                   4 minutes.                                                                                                            6. Increase the speed to medium and mix until all ingredients are                   fully blended.                                                                                                      7. Remove from the mixer and layout onto a sheet pan. Freeze for                    approximately 20 minutes to make sure the internal                                        temperature is 34 F or below.                                                                         8. Form them into rounds balls.                                                                           9. Lay them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake                     at 350 F for  approximately 20-25 minutes.                                                   10. Remove from the heat and cool down. 

The great thing about these meatballs is that you can really use them how ever you please, whether in a pasta dish, as a pizza or flatbread topping or served solo as an appetizer (as seen in the photo below). 

Bon Appetit!

Holiday Cheer

Boston is a great place year round but come holiday season, when the lights go up all over the city, it adds an element of cheer that is hard to describe!

Here are some great things going on around us during the winter season:

1. The Boston Frog Pond: https://bostonfrogpond.com/

2. Boston Winter in City Hall: http://cityhallplazaboston.com/

3. SoWa Holiday Market: http://www.sowaholidaymarket.net/

Now we just need a little snow, just enough to make the city look like a snow globe!

Meet Me At The Raw Bar

Imagine this, it's a stressful week in the office (most of you don't have to imagine this part, though), between meetings that go on for far longer than necessary to the boss man not being impressed with the presentation you spent hours prepping for and to top it off the T is absurdly slow during rush hour and packed to the brim with strangers...only to be going back to your house that needs to be cleaned and dinner that needs to be cooked. What if we had the perfect solution for you, where you can sit back, relax with a cocktail and all your favorite seafood within arms reach. Well it's no longer something you have to imagine, it's happening and it's happening right at the front of our bar! 

Why not spend an hour or two after work distressing and by the time you've done so the T will be running on schedule and you might even get a seat for you ride home!

Carrie Who?

Whether you are from Boston, traveling for work or exploring the city from out of town, the common question we hear is "Who is Carrie Nation..." We get it, you walk into our restaurant and see a woman, with a rather mean mug and a hatchet, not exactly inviting! We promise there is good reason for this!

A woman with absolute determination, guts and often even called a crusader of her time inspired us! Her wrap sheet for disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace was pretty impressive too. Carrie Nation was on a mission. The mission, to destroy any and all "speakeasy's" that went against her belief that alcoholic beverages were sinful. Her idea of implementing these beliefs was a bit ironic, using force such as her hatchet, bricks, and rocks to destroy other peoples property. With great effort her mission was not as successful as she had hoped and after her death in 1911 "Faithful to the Cause of Prohibition, She Hath Done What She Could" was etched into her grave.

We credit Carrie Nation's efforts and commemorate her with a speakeasy, although she is most likely rolling in her grave, we have to thank her for the inspiration!

"I felt invincible. My strength was that of a giant. God certainly standing by me, I smashed five saloons with rocks before I ever took a hatchet."
