Tremont 647 & Sister Sorel
American food with European flairs in a fun, neighborhood atmosphere. Great for a drink, better for dinner, and “pajama brunch” is always a fave.
Times Irish Pub and Restaurant
Better as a pub than a restaurant. But if you want a bite later in the even, and you crave bar food, this might be the place for you.
The Union Oyster House
Seafood’s on the menu and tourism is the main spice. But how can you avoid a place that’s supposedly been open since 1720?
Great Italian food and great service are just the beginning of the praises for this South End favorite. It’s also good to know they are open well past midnight.
Rated the best new restaurant by The New York Times (with prices to match), you’ll remember the Japanese-inspired menu more than what you payed.
If you’re going to the suburbs, there’s no better reason than this huge Italian restaurant. It’s a bit pricey, but enough surprises on the menu to warrant the drive.
French and Cuban collide at this pricey fusion restaurant. It’s romantic, classy, and expensive, so slow down and enjoy every bit of the experience.
The first Italian cafe in Boston still has that old-world ‘charm.’ Yes it’s touristy, but the coffee, drinks and desserts are worth taking the well-worn path.
Upscale bar food served with a view of the Boston skyline. The menu is not unexpected, but the execution brings people back again and again.
Bacco Ristorante & Bar
You can stay downstairs and enjoy a drink. Or venture to the second floor for Italian favorites and a nice variety of things you haven’t tried yet.
