Foundry, a Melrose supper club run by Patina alum Eric Greenspan, is as relaxed as a place with a $80 tasting menu can be, with a spacious patio, a dining room weirdly commingled with the open kitchen, and a bar area dominated by laid-back piano music. Waiters rush by with little cast-iron pots of pork belly with fried eggs and fitted rounds of toast; rare, crisp-skinned salmon with shaved beets and puréed beets; and braised short ribs with an exceptionally airy horseradish-potato purée. The eclectic wine list is long and reasonably priced, the cheese plate is formidable, and on Tuesday nights, there's fried chicken.
Mother's Day is this coming Sunday, and if you haven't gotten that one figured out yet, maybe it's time to start planning. Depending on your age and demographic, a crayoned card could work, or maybe y... More »

So, apparently YouTube has a food channel called Tasted. Who knew? And they do tons of programing, mainly in the Food Network/Bravo style -- that is to say, jaunty music, quick-cut editing and shows w... More »
Cooking can be dangerous, as anyone who has spent much time in a kitchen can attest. Now consider the hazards of a career surrounded by flames, superheated liquids and sharp objects. So we queried som... More »
Chef Eric Greenspan once said of his food, "I'm a down-home guy who happens to roam at a high-end level." It makes sense, then, that he's found a way to take a simple soul food menu and gussy it up a little in honor of Bluesy Tuesdays, the Foundry on Melrose's weekly blues and Southern rock jam session. There is, of course, fried chicken, but it comes with goat cheese waffles. There are fried green tomatoes with watermelon and blue cheese and creamed corn sweetened with caramelized onions,... More »
Is my title not enough? Eric, the chef and owner, is the bomb - he's this dude you feel like you knew from back in the day where you grew up - but now suddenly he's this big deal chef who runs his own really fun restaurant. You can book a table in the patio out back or the main room - but it's also easy to just roll in and eat at the bar or in their lounge area (where they have live music some nights - and for Sunday "brunch," which starts at 2pm - 'cuz Eric understands what time people roll out of bed after a Saturday night out). Get the homemade tater tots with your grilled cheese, and have the bartender make you a ginger fizz (which is no longer on the menu, but they'll make it if they have fresh ginger in the house - it's spicy and refreshing to cut through the richness of the meal). Update: the bar menu has been expanded to offer real entrees - and I just recently tried the artichoke/prosciutto/goat cheese salad and mussels which were both DIVINE.
