Good things tend to come in threes.
Driving that point home to Brookline comes The Daily Catch, the third installment of the beloved Sicilian-style seafood empire, opening today in Coolidge Corner.
Those of you in the Fenway and Audubon Circle areas can rejoice: you no longer have to hoof it to the other side of the city for Calamari Meatballs, heaping plates of Lobster Fra Diavolo and whatever else the family-run business has culled from the sea that day.
And because they're reopening their Brookline outpost (after a few years off and a new paint job), you now have a cozy 19-seat seafood option to turn to, not to mention a solid solution when craving an ice-cold Birra Moretti (and, okay, maybe a Grilled Swordfish with Homemade Black Pasta Alfredo) after a screening at the Coolidge Corner Theatre down the road.
But as the smallest of the three DCs, it's also the perfect neighborhood nook when looking to grab a quiet table with a date, where you can choose from 18 different Italian wines.
In terms of charm, think of it as Al Pacino at the beginning of the first Godfather.
