Had a great meal at Devlin's in Brighton Center the other day. I wasn't sure what Devlin's would be like, as Brighton Center has always seemed a bit rough-and-tumble to me. To have an upscale, trendy restaurant like Devlin's there...well, it seemed strange. But as it turned out Devlin's was definitely worth going to.
The interior of Devlin's is mellow and upscale, and when we went, there was techno music in the background, which worried me a bit, but the sheer warmth of the people at Devlin's more than made up for the faceless music. And the food more than made up for it. I had a cheddar cheese and ale soup, which was outstanding, and a hangar steak, which was tender, lean, and tasty. I had no room for dessert, but we had ordered the prix fixe special, which includes dessert, so I found a way to down a chocolate souffle.
I'm still full from the meal at Devlin's, but quite content. Devlin's was a bit expensive, especially for Brighton Center, but worth the extra money.
If you would like the address for Devlin's, here it is: Devlin's, 332 Washington Street, Brighton, MA 02135; the phone number is (617) 779-8822.
