• At the brand-new Chateau Kabob in Adams Village, “there is still some major room for improvement. Falafel balls were large but dry. Beef kabobs were tender and evenly cooked but not very flavorful. The roasted veggies were absolutely delicious but the portion was skimpy. A kebab dinner for $14 should at least pile on the veggies, no?” [Dottie Hottie]

• At Toro, the famed corn “is like no other corn I’ve ever had. It’s perfectly charred, slathered in aioli and then topped with soft, aged cheese, two wedges of lime to add a bright zing to the fat-on-fat. This is a vegetable that no diet would allow.” [Lingbo Li]

Trina’s Starlite Lounge is one to add to the “growing roster of Inman Square favorites.” [Fun and Fearless in Beantown]
