Last night I had dinner with a high school friend at Daedalus in Harvard Square. I had only recently learned about the restaurant after a coworker went back in June and excitedly shared her experience with me the following morning. After she showed me the website, I knew I had to check it out.
Daedalus is located on Mt. Auburn Street, parallel to Mass Ave in Harvard Square. As I approached the restaurant, I was immediately struck by it's large, open, front windows and the lush greenery on the window sills.
We had a reservation, but they offered us a table inside and we were hoping to sit on the roof deck. We opted to wait thirty minutes for an outside table. While doing so, we had a drink at the bar on the second floor which was flooded with sunlight.
When our name was called, we stepped out on to the roof deck and I was immediately in heaven. The deck has beautiful views of Harvard Square, is blooming with flowers and plants, and has gorgeous furniture and wood paneling.
For me, it's a pleasure to still be discovering new things in and around Boston after nearly 27 years here. Daedalus was a true urban oasis and I was fantasizing about renting out the entire roof deck for a private party. Now if only I had an occasion . . .
