The Swellesley Report’s Wellesley restaurant reviews:
Our most recent Wellesley restaurant take-out meal was from Bocado, a Spanish wine and tapas bar/restaurant on Church Street in Wellesley Square.
The star of the tapas meal was the fried jumbo shrimp made with harissa sofrito, pan fried rice, and a beautiful and bright chimichurri sauce. Bocado came up big here, with sizable shrimp lightly fried, delicious, and with a lovely presentation.
The grilled eggplant special served with quinoa, loose pesto, smoked almonds, and shiitake bacon was a miss for me, however. The eggplant was underdone, and the shiitake bacon was tough instead of nice and crispy.
