"MF Sushibar was founded by the Kinjo brothers, Alex and Chris, whose complementary talents are the core of the midtown namesake. Chris is a renowned sushi chef who has shared his innovative approach to the sushi making craft in restaurants across the U.S. for more than a decade. His amazing use of his hands in creating his renowned dishes earned him the "Magic Fingers" nickname from his peers. Chris' respect and passion for the art of sushi have earned him the reputation as one of the country's most creative and accomplished sushi chefs. Alex utilized his extensive background in art to personally design many of the features offered in the restaurant, including the menus, advertising and stylish, yet inviting décor."

childhood education to children from around the world.

The Boston Children's School is located at Charles River Park in the historic West
End section of Boston. Ideally situated, the Boston Children's School is nestled away

educational resource.

Kindergarten. Our multi-cultural, co-educational student body attracts families from
the greater Boston area and from around the globe.

Our teaching staff consists of full time teachers for each age group, with an
approximate teaching ratio of 1 to 8. All of our teachers are fully certified by the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Our supplemental teaching staff includes
specialists in the areas of Music, Art, Woodworking, Drama, Story-Telling and
Gymnastics.

Better than Bakery



"From its crisp, chewy crust to its soft center, a Better Than Bakery baguette is the quintessential bread-and-butter pairing. Spread with all-natural, flavor-infused creamery butter that melts throughout when heated, our breads have been known to elicit exclamations of pure satisfaction with each and every mouth-watering bite. 
“But how did Better Than Bakery begin?” we’re often asked
Well, as with so many things, it began with Mom.

In 1984, stay-at-home mother of three and caterer Debbie drew rave reviews for her French bread, to which she soon added her flavored butters – both savory and sweet. She was onto something and, apparently, couldn’t go wrong. Whether her special blend of garlic and herbs infused the butter or her combination of orange and honey, the loaves soon developed a die-hard following among every friend, neighbor and passerby who tried them. Reports of “If my husband does not get up soon, I will eat the whole thing by myself …” and “That bread was a hit at my daughter’s wedding brunch …” could be heard far and wide.
Upon retiring, Debbie shared her tried-and-true recipes with us, her daughter and son-in-law, and we are proud to continue her Better Than Bakery tradition while adding a few inspired ideas of our own – including a baguette for the bacon lover and packaging five of our seven gourmet butters to be sold separately for your own inspired creations. We’ve also included recipe ideas and menu suggestions in the Web site, in case you  get stuck, but we don’t think you will.
Despite our changes, Better Than Bakery bread are still baked Mom’s way. We currently offer seven varieties of breads (Each with an enthusiastic fan base – thanks for your e-mails and letters!) and hope you’ll try each of them. And don’t worry about picking a favorite; we’ve heard it’s a losing battle.
Sliced on the diagonal, buttered and frozen, the breads are ready to heat and serve as an appetizer, a comforting snack or with a meal. Honestly, it’s always the right time.
We’re grateful that you chose Better Than Bakery and hope you’ll let us know what you think by posting a comment on our site. We’d love to hear from you!
Steve and Kristen"
