I loved Insieme but had found the old Hearth a little boring (in retrospect I may have just been immature), a little Blue Hillish...
Checked out the latest incarnation of Hearth this past weekend. Cocktails are good, post-Grieco wine list seems fine. Lamb belly salad (I know I know) was fabulous. Summer veggies were good. The offal "burger" didn't really work for me, nothing wrong with it per se...I just thought it was kind of one-note and the presentation was puzzling. I would have been happy having a second serving of that lamb belly salad though. The burger might work better if he put it in a bun and added some fries as a "cheap dinner"...might sell like bonkers. Service was perfectly professional.
My opinions are obviously my personal opinions. Not yours. Not universal.

Has he stopped serving potato wedges with the burger?
It certainly makes more sense to me as a one-dish meal rather than as a dinner course; I always felt the same way about the dB burger. But without the potatoes...

A lot of plates passed by, but I thought the stand-outs were the mushroom trifolati, the short rib, the burger, the tarte tatin. Didn't get to try a duck dumpling.

The inspiration for going back here recently, after a long hiatus, was to try the potato gnocchi. I'd made a couple of unsuccessful attempts at home, including Canora's recipe. Everything was excellent, particularly the ribollita and pastas, apart from the unexpectedly gummy gnocchi. And the meatballs lacked their past lightness. I was glad to see the restaurant's still busy.
