Because they already have plenty of silverware and, um, wood (?), the proprietors of Fenway's Church are eschewing traditional anniversary gifts in lieu of ringing in their restaurant's 5th with a sexy new menu that says, we still love you, except when you tip below 18%.
First Date Fare: Settle in for some early round parsing of your online profile over snacks like cilantro-sprinkled duck confit tacos w/ picked shallots and chayote slaw, or a Cajun-inspired crawfish ettouffee sided by grilled sourdough and crispy leeks.
Moving In Together: Make your case for hanging that extremely chill Moe. poster above the living room couch while plowing through a series of sliders (BBQ braised pork belly w/ tomato chutney, etc.) before advancing onto pan-fried pierogies w/ sweet onion relish, and the bacon, caramelized onion, and creme fraiche Flammkuchen flatbread.
Happily Fat/Married: Those who no longer count calories or wear belts can indulge in spicy sausage orrechiette in a house marinara w/ shaved ricotta salata, crispy cod cakes & bacon-braised kale, or chimichurri-sauced steak tips w/ truffle-parm fries & skillet cornbread -- though just make sure that when they ask if you want it doused maple butter, you say "I do".
