Kitchen tip

from the Boston Globe's Sheryl Julian

Quick roasted tomato sauce: Core tomatoes, toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until they collapse. Transfer with cooking juices to a bowl. Pull off skins, use scissors to snip flesh into chunky pieces. Add plenty of fresh basil.

At Davio’s Cucina, simple isn’t always bestAt Davio’s Cucina, simple isn’t always best
1.5 Stars  The new restaurant is more relaxed than the original Davio’s, the menu slanted slightly more toward Italian and away from steakhouse. But the food doesn’t live up to that at other Davio’s.

1.0 Stars  The specials menu's tone deafness is a sign of things to come. The menu shows ambition, but it’s not being realized.
