New Specials at Back Deck; Boston Now Has Crabbies

DOWNTOWN CROSSING - Back Deck, which opened last summer with grilling at its core, is starting a new special based around "slow-grilled" dishes inspired by various cuisines. These will be available as entrees and as part of a three-course prix fixe on some Sundays. For instance, the "Spanish Supper" includes grilled chorizo with figs; a lamb shoulder marinated in sherry and garlic and served with aioli, new potatoes, spinach with pine nuts and raisins; and the Spanish shortbreads known as Mantecados.
