Empire – Boston

A swanky upscale Asian restaurant on the sea port of Boston. This restaurant combines the flavors of Asia with the panache and class of New England. A great place to head to on any day of the week, depending on what you are looking for. The weekends are popping with the latest music, a well dressed young crowd and some great cocktails to go with their delicious food. While during the week you will find great modern food, but a quieter atmosphere.

They have a bunch of vegetarian options and each is as good as the next. Good food and great service in a modern restaurant is a lethal combination. The menu offers some great sushi options, and they are happy cater to your requests. Don’t miss out on the Avocado Nigiri! It’s rare that vegetarians get to eat Nigiri, it usually has fish, but we jumped on the veggie option as soon as we saw it.

The The mushroom buns were also great! as well as the tempura vegetables and a made-on-request garlic fried rice. All the food was perfectly cooked and really delicious. Another favorite was the Asian Pear Salad, well tossed, with fresh greens and a delicious dressing perfectly proportioned to the salad.  Our server was really helpful and made vegetarian alterations for us. We went to Empire to celebrate my brother’s graduation and the server very kindly got us a special dessert on the house to celebrate the occasion. And the dessert was as good as the food! a perfect end to our meal.

The vibe is great, the food is delicious, the people are nice, they have a large bar, an open kitchen, great decor and very well priced. This a must visit for all the veggies in Boston.
