Newton’s neighborhood tavern is off the beaten path

Our waitress tries several times to offer my tablemate green beans with her turkey tips ($13.50). She refuses. “Why?” I whisper when the waitress is gone. “They’re probably frozen,” she says.

So I order them, just to see what arrives — and perhaps prove her wrong, because I have a good feeling about this place. My Parmesan-panko-crusted cod ($15.50), a thick moist piece of fish, comes garnished with green beans and garlic-roasted red potatoes with plenty of caramelized edges. The beans are bright, fresh, and cooked just right.
