I’m at a red-brick bar in Boston. It used to be a fire station. Busta Rhymes is on the sound system. And as luck would have it I’m sitting next to Bernard Horn, an MIT alum whose Polaris Capital manages $4 billion. Smart guy.
He tells me to try the grilled mushrooms with sesame foam. Right on. They come as part of a tasting menu that, after wine, tax and tip, will end up costing me $462.
