9 East Street
Boston, MA 02111
I've been here a few times now and every time it gets a little better and better.
I have to admit I was not a very big fan in the beginning. When they first opened, I was more of a hater. I found a ton of their dishes were copies of other famous dishes around the world and to me, that was kind of pointless. Let alone paying upwards of $200 a person, it wasn't right serving unoriginal dishes and charging so much.
But over the years, having come back (sometimes un-reluctantly I might add), Oya has grown on me and their food seems to have grown a noticeable style.
Although there are still a few dishes that clearly are rip offs of other famous chefs, I have come to appreciate a few originals there and in a way, their food has taken on an Oya feel.
Food - (B+) Solid. But just too damn unoriginal.
Ambiance - (A-) Cozy
Service - (A) Very attentive
Price - (C-) Just out of wack from a NYer's point of view.
