Harvard Square’s street cred multiplied by a thousand when The Sinclair began calling it home. The love child of everything cool right now, The Sinclair is what you get when you cross a James Beard Award winning chef with live alternative music, and a neighborhood filled with a hip young crowd deprived of a venue like this for too long.
The food is gastropub inspired, with an equally crafted collection of cocktails that celebrates timeless classics: the menu offers ‘Back Then’ and ‘Right Now’ options.
This lovely picture is the Spinach and Ricotta Gnudi. Gnudi, I’m still not sure how to pronounce that, is a cousin of gnocchi and this dish is a cousin of heaven. If fat balls of pasta aren’t good enough on their own, try them with brown butter, pancetta (bacon’s sibling), and sage. This dish was $9 and I would pay five times that to eat it again. I was in disbelief, it was the tastiest, most intricately designed dish I’ve had in a while. I can’t comment on the music venue half of this place yet, but Michael Schlow has the food side covered. And he speaks the language of taste buds.
