When waiters get off work, where do they go? Cafe Escadrille. Located in a former restaurant wasteland between Route 128 and the Burlington Mall, this elegant emporium used to be the only place a workaholic could get oysters Rockefeller, baked brie, or a corned beef sandwich after 10. Competitors have opened recently, but none can top the original. Try the lobster macaroni and cheese, made with four cheeses and drizzled with truffle oil.
