Boston Magazine said Gari Sushi was “Reinventing the Roll,” Bostonians gave it “Best of City Search,” and Gari Sushi even graced the pages of Stuff Magazine as a “Fusion Favorite” in their What’s Hot section. The intimately small space features modern design, and the food is Japanese-Euro-American fusion, so in addition to Sushi, Maki Rolls, Donburi, and Udon, you get to taste striking numbers like Carpaccio, Carribean Phyllo Crusted Prawns, and Cajun Escolar Tataki. Save room for Tempura Fried Ice Cream. East met West and things never tasted so good.
Serenade Chocolatier brings cocoa all the way from Belgium to make Viennese-style chocolates right in charming Brookline Village. The original recipe came from Austria via “Uncle Bill’’ Federer, who, according to the Globe, sang in the famous Vienna Boys Choir, survived the Dachau concentration camp, and opened Serenade in 1960. Since then, this shop has been layering pure butter, sweet cream, and premium chocolate to create signature pieces like Almond Bark, Marzipan, Sea Salt Caramel, Moca, Green Tea, Honeycomb, Scarlet Orange, and Tango. Send a box of chocolates that’s exquisite on the taste buds and eyes, or order fanciful favors like Serenade’s Chocolate Violin – so much more fun eating than playing.
So enjoy, Brookline folks! We are even having a little 25% off promotion to entice you or a friend to head into Brookline for dinner and a dessert. And check out the latest at our other Coolidge Corner shops – Melt Bath & Skincare and Finale.
