Lineage Restaurant Brookline

Last night we ate at Lineage Restaurant in Brookline, just across from Trader Joe's.

It was our first time trying this restaurant and we had a fun time.

The staff was great. We sat at the bar. When we arrived the temperature in the room seemed as cold as the inside of a refrigerator, but we got a couple of seats right in front of the brick oven and soon warmed up.

Lineage has a big wine list. I chose to try an Irony, Pinot Noir, but they were out of it, so they gave me a Mark West Pinot at the same price. I really liked this wine. I liked it so much in fact that after we ate, we dropped in to Trader Joe's and I bought a bottle for $8.99.

Turns out that Mark West has a little revolution going on.

For dinner, I had the Pan Roasted Halibut, and Carol had the Grilled Wild Salmon which was served with sweet 100 tomatoes and eggplant.

Both were excellent.

I was intrigued by the Butterscotch Pudding on the desseert menu, but didn't order it. Then as a surprise, our friendly bartender delivered a sample Butterscotch Pudding for us to try.

Lineage Restaurant in Brookline rates five stars in my book. We'll be back.

  1. Enjoyed your review of the restaurant but I have a question --

    sweet 100 tomatoes --what's that?

  2. Sweet 100 (Lycopersicon lycopersicum) is a variety of tomato.

    I'm surprised you didn't Google it.
