|Asta in the Back Bay|
The pared down interior - red elm communal tables, steel - helps keep the focus where Crabb wants it: on the food. His “playful” (his description) farm-to-table cuisine is offered in tasting menus only: three-, five- and eight-course tastings at about $40, $70 and $90, respectively. Beer, wine and cordials are part of the offerings.
Asta is open Tuesday through Sunday, 6-10:30 PM.
