Spire Restaurant

By: Kellie K. Speed

Spire Restaurant We had heard so much about the new boutique hotel, Nine Zero, and its ultra trendy Spire restaurant that we had to see what the buzz was all about.

Chef Jeffrey Everts and Chef de Cuisine Matthew Morello have created a hip new hot spot right on the Boston Common.

While everyone at the bar looked like they were taking a break from shopping on Newbury Street, it was easy to see why people enjoy this French Provencal restaurant.  From the friendly and accommodating wait staff to the expansive views of downtown Boston, Spire is a wonderful choice to bring that special someone.

We started out the evening with an order of potato gnocchi served with mushrooms ($11).  They arrived intricately arranged and topped with parmesan cheese.  The surf and turf appetizer ($15) was one of their signature dishes - seared diver scallops with braised oxtail and truffle emulsion.  Other appetizers included aged balsamic quail and foie gras.

We also sampled the potato crusted ahi tuna ($12) and lobster and chantenay carrot bisque ($10).  The ahi tuna was extremely fresh and flavorful while the bisque was creamy but not too heavy. 

The entrees here were amazing.  I ordered the seared Tasmanian sea trout ($29), which was lightly seasoned.  My husband sampled the beef tenderloin Rossini, which he declared a success.

Other entrees included slow poached turbot ($31), rack of lamb ($33), pan seared Thailand snapper ($32) and Georgetown Farms bison ($36). 

Unfortunately, we didn't save any room for dessert but the menu looked wonderful with delights like rose water crème brulee ($8), taffy apple tart with granny smith sorbet ($9) and Spire citrus sorbet assortment ($7).  We look forward to our next visit to Spire.
