Grassona’s Italian Kitchen Is Open


Fairsted Kitchen? What Fairsted Kitchen? Grassona’s the family friendly Italian Kitchen is now open in Washington Square. Here is a sneak peek.

The owner Steve (who grew up in Brookline and graduated from BHS) says the cozy Italian joint is an evolution for him.

“Fairsted was a restaurant about Brookline drawing on Brookline roots and history and themes, Grassona’s is a restaurant for Brookline,” he said.

The Italian restaurant will be open Tuesday through Saturday 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. for dinner and til midnight for drinks. Sundays you can expect a brunch option.

Not only does the menu have hearty Italian classics with a twist like the meatballs (Phil’s Slow Braised Meatballs with pickled mustard seed germolata for $12) but there are some carefully thought out options for vegetarians and fish eaters.

The grand opening is not until next week, he says, but on their first official night open Thursday he has served and seen a number of familiar faces from the old Fairsted days.
