A dreary day was made so much better by the fact that my cold has pretty much left my body and I got to spend a lovely lunch with my cousin Annemarie.
Last year I was given an open invitation to head to Sam’s at Louis Boston on the waterfront and I thought that today was a good day to take them up on it since we were in that area. Once the weather is nicer, I will go back because their patio and views are amazing.
The space is extremely modern and open, with diner style tables and white booths. The bar is set in the corner and has about 10 seats. The wall o’ liquor makes it a great focal point. There were also a few flowers adorning the tables.
For lunch, I was torn between wanting just a sandwich or going for a first course too. I’m going out later tonight, so I stuck with the former. Their menu is small but the options are extremely tantalizing. Everything looked good. I finally settled on the Roasted turkey on cranberry-walnut bread with apple-celery root remoulade and cheddar cheese.
Oh my gosh, this sandwich was heavenly. The bread was toasted perfectly and the apple-celery root remoulade was just the right balance of sweet and crunchy. The sandwich never fell apart and the turkey was sliced thick and I knew that it was better than any deli-style turkey. The fries were also delicious, albeit nothing extremely special. I ended up only eating half and I am looking forward to lunch tomorrow to have the other!
The service was also spot on. Our dishes were out within minutes, yet they didn’t taste rushed. Since it was 1:30 on a Thursday, they were working with the lunch crowd and their timing was great. And…my water was always full.
I honestly wasn’t sure how I would like Sam’s but I was pleasantly surprised and I have to say that I loved it! I cannot wait to go back for dinner and brunch. And sit out on their patio with a cocktail.
This lunch was complimentary, thanks to Sam’s, but these opinions are that of my own.
Sam’s is located at 60 Northern Avenue in Boston.
