One of our favorite gastropubs recently added a few new food items to their menu and we could not be more excited about it. Russell House Tavern is an essential go-to in the Harvard Square area which, unlike the average tavern, serves up a variety of jaw-dropping dishes inspired by some seriously out-there ingredients. Bordering on offal, you'll find dishes like beef tongue meatballs and heart raviolis alongside the more traditional fare like grass fed burgers and burssell sprouts served with burratta.

This February Chef Michael Scelfo took it up a notch, introducing gravlax, oxtail and scallops to Russell House's repertoire. Take a first look at some of the new nom-options below and click here for some more oldies (but goodies)


Archer Farm’s Oxtail Pierogi served with sides of Spiced Yogurt and Bou-Rye Apple Sauce


Citrus & Juniper Cured Gravlax topped with Rye Crumbs, Pickled Grapes and Creme Fraiche


Seared Rachel Rose Scallops atop Braised Borlotti Beans & Pork Belly, Brown Bread and a Green Herb Pistou
