Strip T's In Watertown-Watch Out NYC!
Strip T's in Watertown, think Momofuku meets Craigie on Main...in a former diner of sorts. Yup-just sitting in Watertown is a gem that you may want to catch now before the lines make it too hard to get in. Strip T's, a restaurant since 1986, was taken over by son Tim Maslow last April. The fact that Chef Maslow trained at the French Culinary Institute and worked at Momofuku may be the keys to getting best of NYC in MA.
We were so full we had to pass on the desserts as well. That begin said both Jonathan and Kerry sung the praises of the pots o' cream. Typically my eyes glaze as I see chocolate pots o' cream (panna cotta, pudding, etc.) but they pointed out that this one was made with, get this: shitake mushrooms! Perhaps that isn't everyone's idea of dessert, but it is definitely tapped my curiosity factor. Just one more example of the playfulness at Strip T's.
