You’ve probably never considered whether mustard gelato pairs well with swordfish pastrami, just like you’ve never considered whether unicorn fur pants pair well with glass slippers. At Puritan and Company, though, not only will you find things on the menu you never even imagined existed, but you’ll also find that they’re really, really good. This farmhouse-type place in Inman Square focuses on traditional New England food (meaning, a lot of seafood) but it also does a great job with things like truffle burrata and short rib pasta. If you don’t have time for both an appetizer and an entree, the phyllo-wrapped cod is served in clam chowder.
