Cathal Armstrong pulls all sorts of influences together at his Old Town flagship—highly technical Continental dishes, family-style Filipino plates, even a strapping lasagna. It reads a little unfocused, but it’s to Armstrong’s—and deputy Paolo Dungca’s—credit that somehow the results don’t feel chaotic. Pastry chef Joshua Jarvis continues to give diners plenty of reasons to look beyond the cutesy “birthday cake” that has been on the menu since the early days. Expensive. Also great:scallops with parsnip-root purée; bouillabaisse; skate with cardamom yogurt; Honeycrisp-apple custard.
