Update: Sascha’s 527 has now closed
After walking around Mount Vernon on a warm spring evening, my friends and I were hungry and looking to grab dinner nearby. After walking down Charles Street for a few blocks, we spotted Sascha’s 527 Cafe. We took a quick look at the menu and decided this was the place for us. The menu is divided into four main sections (on the grain, from the field, from the pasture and from the water) and there truly is something for everyone.
After looking over the menu, we were all pleasantly surprised that the prices were on the lower side and many of the menu options came in multiple sizes depending on how hungry you were. One of my friends ordered the Airline Chicken Breast. She ordered the smaller size but it was a piece of chicken over a bed of rice topped with some greens and a sauce, she said the dish was very flavorful.
My other friend ordered the Bistro Filet. While she said the cut of beef was a little bit on the fatty side, she absolutely loved the potato cake it came with as well as the demi glaze over the piece of meat.
For my main course, I decided to try something a little different and ordered the Korean BBQ Tacos. The order came with three tacos that had beef bulgogi, kimchee and pickles. The dish was definitely on the small side but it was good nonetheless.
As a group, we decided to share the Parmesan Herb Fries. They came with two delicious dipping sauces, a truffle aioli and herb olive oil. Personally I preferred the truffle aioli but both were wonderful additions to the fries.
