What to Eat at East by Northeast, Now Open in Inman Square

By

After months of anticipation, T.W. Food and Hungry Mother alum Phillip Tang's East by Northeast is now open in Inman Square and we've got your first look at the menu. The hand-made noodles Tang promised in September are present, accounted for, and available in four dishes. A soup dumpling is also on offer with a filling of pork and butternut squash. There's a small but lovely cocktail list and a nicely curated selection of beers. Tang says that dim sum will be on offer once they get used to dinner service.
