I had another “Diners Dining” assignment for the Boston Herald last week at a new restaurant across the street from Fenway Park. “Hip” is only the beginning when describing the decor of Basho Japanese Brasserie — What the heck is a “Brasserie” anyway? The interior made for some interesting pictures, and of course, the food looked delicious. Can’t ask for a better combination than that!
Here’s a few from the assignment.
7.11.2010 — BOSTON — Sushi chefs prepare some sushi rolls in front of an elaborately lit backdrop at Basho Japanese Brasserie on Boylston Street on July 11, 2010.
7.11.2010 — BOSTON — Freshly prepared sushi rolls wait to be served at Basho Japanese Brasserie on Boylston Street on July 11, 2010.
7.11.2010 — BOSTON — Cook Mike Carletti prepares a meal at a robata grill, the first of its kind in Boston, at Basho Japanese Brasserie on Boylston Street on July 11, 2010. The grill uses traditional Japanese high-density charcoal in a specially ventilated room to keep patrons from grill fumes.
