This week enjoy dinner at 33 Restaurant & Lounge:

"“Mature trendsetters” maintain that “if you wander in on a quiet night”, you’ll have “a great time sampling” the “inventive”, “reasonably well-executed” New American dishes this “sleek”, “sexy” Back Bay hideaway delivers, while growing hypnotized by its “soothing” color-changing panels; but the “clublike atmosphere” is a “turnoff” to self-styled “serious diners” who prefer to leave its “erratic” offerings to the “young and beautiful” “singles” thronging the “downstairs lounge.”" - Zagat.com

"Filling out a little corner pocket on Stanhope Street, 33 shot to local fame thanks to its design---and has gone forgotten by foodies, if not by night-crawlers, since. It was the first in town to sport color-changing LED panels along its bar and on its stairwell; now they’re practically cliché. And while the lounge downstairs continues in the clubby vein, with ottoman stools and thumping grooves, the often empty upstairs dining room beyond the bar abides by the standard urban code---all exposed brick and angular minimalism. Yet the food is better than the late-night crowd who parties here has a right to expect. Anthony Dawodu's contemporary seasonal menu doesn't miss a chance to add spice here, sparkle there, be it a proper Caesar garnished with chilled lobster, veal tenderloin accompanied by cheese grits or pound cake set off by roasted pineapple as well as coconut mousse. We're not saying it all works---sometimes flavors get lost in the shuffle---but much of it does, and we like Dawodu's spunk in any case, unexpected in this oh-so-jaded atmosphere." - Gayot.com
