welcome to our next-door neighborhood, Blue Hill!

A couple of months ago, a new restaurant opened just one neighborhood over from us (about one mile from my house, door to door) on a prominent corner of Conkling and Dillon, turning an allegedly pretty down and out bar into the Canton area's newest hot spot. Blue Hill Tavern is now the talk of the town and the place to go for happy hour drinks or celebratory dinner. Whether you want to spend a few bucks on nibbles, such as smoked salmon tartar, or go the whole hog on the $52 Chateaubriand, you're sure to find something to please the palate.

While you certainly won't get dirty looks for showing up in jeans, you'll find that the majority of the patrons are wearing what I term "snappy-casual" attire, which I personally appreciate. With so many bars in the area, it's nice to have options for those times you just want to dress up a touch and not stand out.

You'll find there's plenty to please the senses as well, with a bar-long water feature, semi-private balconies on the second floor, and lovely service all around. When I recently went with two friends to celebrate a birthday, we had great cocktails, and assortment of appetizers, and delicious burgers all around. Learning that it was a birthday celebration, the servers let the birthday girl pick a dessert and brought it out with candle ablaze (and extra forks!).

If you haven't been yet, I suggest you put this new spot on your list the next time you're looking to leave the neighborhood for a night out or just a casual cocktail with friends or co-workers.
