Amidst all the hoopla and hype in Central Square yesterday I stepped aside for a refreshingly cool place to hang out. Flour 3 on Mass. Ave. was an oasis.
The design is modern, simple and filled with the foods Joanne Chang loves.
Complicated, delicate pastries fill the tables alongside hearty, flavorful sandwiches.
The chalkboard menus. Who, I ask you, has writing like that?
The pristine, open kitchen is all that any obsessive-compulsive foodie could ask for.
A deliciously warm, simple ham and cheese turnover was my mid-morning, writerly snack.
