west side lounge in cambridge, ma

Despite the cold weather, Tony and I walked to the West Side Lounge on Mass Ave to have dinner with Renee. Funny how we’ve lived in Somerville for the past nine years and there are still a lot of restaurants that we haven’t tried yet. Well, cross this one of our list.

We (Tony and I) were the very first ones there which was a little awkward. We sat at the bar and had some wine before dinner. It’s a cozy atmosphere inside and the bartender was super friendly. It wasn’t that crowded right after 6, but then suddenly the place was packed.

Renee had the fish tacos … mmmmm, my favorite!! It’s so difficult for me to get them nowadays since they’re usually in a cornmeal based, fried batter. I wish places up here in the east coast would do them grilled or with a simple flour batter. Anyway, she said they were delicious.

Tony had a burger but substituted the french fries for a small salad. I think it was good because his plate was empty in the end.

I have had this craving for red meat lately. Perhaps a lack of protein in my diet? I dunno, but I’m also known to be a sucker for steak frites. Seriously.

These were good. Not the best I’ve ever had, but good. A tad bit on the salty side, but I think the fries make up for it.

Will definitely have to do this again sometime. Maybe when it’s a little warmer to walk again.
