Frank's Restaurant Choices for February 

Caffe Bene - 333 Massachusetts Ave, Boston

The South Korean mega-chain’s first coffee franchise in New England has turned into a go-to stop in the Symphony Hall area. There are a variety of tempting coffee drinks, teas, smoothies, frappes, pastries, gelatos, and hot sandwiches, like the savory Korean-style spicy chicken. Feeling adventurous? Try the misugaru latte, made of sesame seeds, black beans, brown rice, and barley.

 

Chef Chang's - 30 Massachusetts Ave, Boston

When the owner's of Chef Changs took over the wine cellars Mass Ave space, they opted to keep the fondue spot's festie frescoes of the French country-side. It's a bit of cognitive dissonance to dine on the fiery, deeply flavored dishes of the Sichuan province and northern China while gazing at views of Provence, but it's a quirk that only makes the place more charming. Kick off a meal with the Shaanxi style "hamburgers" ($7) - palm sized flatbread sandwiches filled with sweet sour ground pork - before moving on to the judiciously spiced "Bashu-flavored" fried chicken ($17), stuffed into a cornucopia-shaped basket. Chewy, cumin-laced Xinjian-style flat noodles sauteed with beef and vegetables ($13) will offer some relief - and more warmth on a freezing night than a crock of Gruyere could ever hope to. 

Juniper  - 13 Central Street, Wellesley

Owner Dave Becker, long known for Needham’s Italian eatery Sweet Basil, goes a bit more upscale and Greek/Mediterranean at Juniper in Wellesley: entrees of lamb Bolognese and chicken tagine. It’s an excellent spot for appetizers and drinks, with the full bar that Sweet Basil lacks. But Juniper doesn’t take reservations for parties of fewer than seven, so get there early.
