A good buzz

Sessions Public is a nice place to take your honey

I’m wary of restaurants that spend too much time on just-so décor. Perfect design and attention to the hippest of trends often means food is an after-thought. However, if you’re lucky, you find a restaurant with a warm and welcoming décor that adds to the aesthetic enjoyment of the dining experience and you enjoy a delightful meal to boot.

Sessions Public is an easy to-miss, cozy enclave worth seeking out for good food and warm design, complete with punchy orange chairs.

Those saffron chairs are bright beacons that catch your eye as you drive down a particularly congested section of Voltaire Street— smart design choice. Sessions feels like a well-edited Anthropologie store, with rough salvaged wood planks along the walls, vintage window frames topped with votives hanging down from the ceiling and a quirky bumblebee theme throughout, from the logo above the door to the gigantic wall photo of a honeycomb crawling with the buzzing little buggers.

For the remainder of this review, go here.

Had dinner there a few weeks ago food was great and the place was packed. It was Friday night. I thought the portions were a bit small but I didn’t leave hungry. It was a pleasant surprise to find this new eatery in the neighborhood. I did think the price were a touch high but I am old and still think the trolley should be quarter and we did have 3 or 4 beers.
It gets my recommendation and would be a great spot for a date.
