Thanks to the Volunteers, Restaurants, Sponsors, and Attendees that made Savor the Square a Success

We had a great time at Savor the Square, a special, one-night fundraiser for RVMS that showcased the best of food in Roslindale, on Thursday, September 28th. After many successful years of hosting Taste of Roslindale, we were excited to bring the event back under a new name and with some fresh energy. This year, attendees exchanged purchased "taste tickets" for plates at each of the participating restaurants, and live music by Betty's Bounce provided the perfect backdrop for eating, drinking, and socializing.

Thank you to the 14 restaurants that participated and served up some delicious food from baklava to grilled cheese: 753 South, Birch St Bistro, Boston Cheese Cellar, Delfino, Effie's Kitchen, Fornax Bread, Co., Jamaica Mi Hungry, Napper Tandy's, The Pleasant Cafe, Redd's in Rozzie, Shanti Restaurant, Sophia's Grotto, Tony's Market, and Village Sushi and Grill. Thanks also to PS Gourmet for providing coffee.

Attendees voted on their favorite Bite of the Night on their way out the door. We're excited to share that Shanti Restaurant's plate, spinach chaat, received the most "votes" from event attendees. 

Thank you to our event Co-Sponsor Meetinghouse Bank and our other supporters.
