Sailing Around the World – Going over the menu is like taking a trip around the world. With small plates with favorites like shishito peppers and short ribs, Allston Yacht Club is a relaxed place.
There are specialty cocktails if wine's not your thing. Have some olives or almonds to start but I went all out and had salad and octopus. They also have a daily grilled cheese.
If you remember the old 15 restaurant, the space hasn't changed much.
Small plates, crafty cocktails and 25 wines in former 15. – Inside the small, contemporary space, the feel is somewhat similar to that of former neighborhood favorite, 15. The tables and high-backed leather chairs haven’t changed, but that’s where the similarities stop. The palette has lightened up a bit, literally, with a striking blue, foamy wave rolling across a vibrant yellow wall. A red wall behind the roomy bar adds another pop of color. The menu is all about small plates, including “snacks” like aracini (deep fried chunks of risotto with peas and mozzarella), “plates” including cedar-plank salmon and a pork belly BLT, and “sides” that range from roast Brussels sprouts to fries with chimichurri. Creative signature cocktails include concoctions like the Allston Sunrise, with vodka, Campari, ginger liqueur and fresh tangerine. An equally creative wine list features a selection for any price range and pallet, all served by the bottle or glass.
Editorial Review – With nothing more in common than the same address, Echo Park's short-lived Restaurant 15 has been transformed into a Bostonian sports/tapas bar.
Best Mac n Cheese & Burger – I didn't grow up on Mac n cheese and never really liked it...but after having the jalapeno mac n cheese here, I am hooked. On my way home from work, I usually stop in for a glass of wine but I always end up staying for more. The waiters/bartenders are very attentive and welcoming. There aren't many restaurants that have awesome food and service without burning a hole in your wallet. I have tried everything on the menu because they all sounded so interesting...and I have to say you can't really go wrong with any dish. I love short ribs and I have not found another restaurant that comes close to the short ribs at 15. The bacon wrapped figs (appetizers) are sooo good! And the Kobe burger is really really good. Overall, a great experience!
loved it – Such a treat to find this placein Echo Park -- the food was really tasty -- 3 courses for $15 before 6:30pm on Saturday. The atmosphere was enjoyable, the waiters were great. A real find. Good food, GREAT PRICES.
The cobe burger & mac & cheese are to die for!!!! – If you're skeptical about spending a lot of money, but want some good grub, 15 Restaurant is A MUST! Just go any weekday from 5-7pm and sample their 15 at 15 meals. Talk about gourmet! I had the kobe burger and the mac & cheese. The burger was cooked to perfection. I like it medium well. It was tasty, juicy and big (perfect for my appetite)., and the mac & cheese was terrific! I barely had room for dessert which was delicious as well. The place is classy, yet casual and the servers & owners are very friendly and approchable. I'm going back to 15 on my next Dodger's game, and I'm taking all my friends with me. There's nothing like a fine burger and a beer after a good game!!!
Overrated – The food was very salty and my appetizer was borderline burnt. I had the Cod for an entree and it came out cold and under cooked. The room was too loud. It was my second time there. I had a bad experience the first time, Went back to give it another shot and it was consistently bad. Not in a great area...didn't feel safe going and leaving the place.
Nice, clean and very friendly – Was in LA visiting my family, stopped by and had a bight and a drink, food was very good, bartender made a killer drink, must be very skilled. The whole place has a friendly, clean and wholesome feel with sophisticated
My new favorite place – I ate dinner here the other night with some friends, and I have to say that it was one of the best meals I have had in quite a while. The salmon was cooked so perfectly that it cut like warm butter, and the flavors were tremendous. The server we had was very friendly and was right there when a drink was almost empty or a plate was finished. I would also like to thank the owner for not price gouging his clientele. Everything was priced the way it should be, and this will now be the place I think of first when I want to have a great meal out in the neighborhood.
