T started with the baby arugula salad with shaved fennel, roasted beets, local blue cheese, and a sweet garlic vinaigrette.
For an appetizer I managed to snag the last order of spicy lobster tacos! Their signature appetizer comprised of a mini salty hard taco shell, with chunks of lobster, diced red pepper, onion, a tasty avocado mousse, and a mango salsa. The dish wasn't very spicy, the only bit of mild spice came from the red pepper, but it was probably for the best. The combination of different textures & tastes was perfectly balanced.
T went with the flaky Roasted George’s Bank Monkfish with cannellini beans, small bits of house made bacon, preserved lemon, and fennel in a light buttery cream sauce. In addition to being beautifully presented, the dish was also just as tasty.
With my love of scallops (and mushrooms), I had to order the seared Scituate diver scallops with perfectly roasted mushrooms, fingerling potatoes, spinach, and a black truffle mushroom purée. Four perfectly caramelized fluffy soft scallops sitting on top of wilted spinach with the most perfectly prepared mushrooms I have ever had. I have always loved mushrooms for as long as I can remember, and these were the best mushrooms I have always had. I wish they just had sides of mushrooms that I could order, because I would order them every single time. To say the least, I was obviously a fan of this dish as a whole.
Lineage provides reasonably priced, local, seasonable seafood with a focus on simple clean preparation in a casual & calming setting; definitely one of the best seafood restaurants in the Boston area.
