Eat This: Pierogies and Flatbread at The Beehive

Last week, a few co-workers and I surprised our friend (and other co-worker) at The Beehive in Back Bay. I had only been to The Beehive for cocktails before, so I was excited to return for a sit-down dinner.

A few of us at dinner.

My meal started with the Truffled Potato & Cheese Pierogies, served with caramelized onions and sour cream ($10.50). I shared these with Colleen.

The pierogies were wonderfully crispy on the outside, while the inside was bursting with savory, salty cheese and fluffy, whipped potatoes.

For my meal, I went with the Mushroom and Ricotta Salata Flatbread Pizza ($12) - I'm guessing on the name and price, as their website menu is not updated.

The large, fresh shavings of ricotta over this crispy flatbread pizza were the star of this dish for me. Paired with the wilted greens, "meaty" mushrooms and delicate drizzles of olive oil, this was one surprisingly elegant and satisfying entree.

Although the prices at The Beehive are a little more than I'd prefer to pay - especially for a weeknight dinner - I must admit that the quality of food, jovial service, and lively atmosphere (complete with live music, nightly) were worth the extra few dollars.
