We only ordered from their raw bar menu (scroll down for menus) and the ingredients they used were extremely fresh! However, we felt that the seasonings and sauces were overpowering. We’re more of a purist when it comes to raw seafood.
If you’ve never tried raw scallops, uni or ikura, for, example, this is definitely a good place to start since their seasoning completely covers the fishy taste. Also, we tried barnacles for the first time today! Read on to find out more.
We found another great french/italian restaurant and we’re so excited to share it with everyone!
We went to Marliave on Dine Out Boston Week, but the prices listed below are based on their regular pricing. Scroll down for menus and parking options.

Parking: It’s impossible to find parking here. You have 3 options: (1) Uber/public transport (2) Ruth steak house valet parking for $21 (3) Kimpton Nine Zero valet parking for $28. The Marliave restaurant receptionist suggested that we use the Kimpton Nine Zero valet parking and incorrectly quoted us the price of $19.
This is located at the Boston Public Market. We always park here whenever we go to North End. Did you know parking is only $1/hour (up to 3 hours) as long as you make one purchase from the Boston Public Market?
Pictured above: Taza-tella – 40% dark chocolate whipped up with house ground hazelnut butter [We tried this twice and it was average the first time and really good the second time, so we decided to go for an intermediate rating. We recommend getting it hot as the chocolate do not fully melt when it’s cold; you can feel bits of small chocolate pieces.]
Overall taste: 8/10 | 2017 | 354 Congress St, Boston, MA 02210
+++ = highly recommend | – – – = do not recommend
We feel that we’d give Menton a higher rating if we ordered from their regular menu instead of their Dine Out Boston menu. This review is based on their 2017 Dine Out Boston selection only (see menu below). We went for their 3 course menu for $35pp.
Pictured above: Okdol bibimbap with beef galbi ($11.25) [This is a gem located in the super88 foodcourt! I love how crispy the rice was. The beef was tender and well marinated. I like mine with lots of Korean hot pepper paste (gochujang) and they provided more free of charge. My only complaint was there wasn’t enough beef.]
We love this place! This is located in Ginza and we waited around 30 minutes to get in. They provide an English menu so it’s perfect for tourists. We found this better than the food we had in Tsukiji fish market. That being said, we didn’t try any of the famous restaurants in Tsukiji that would have taken hours of wait to get in.
