Dining outside on the multi-level riverside decks is best at this locally owned popular venue, but a seat indoors by the fireplace also warms up the winter months. Check out the popular pan-seared tuna.
This hip new hangout, headed by Michael Paley of Proof on Main, is located in an actual former garage restored to its full vintage glory — except that pizza and beer are served there now. The gourmet pizzas are fired in an 850-degree oven to ensure perfectly charred crust. Other stars on this regularly-changing menu are freshly shucked oysters and country ham sampler plates.
This cherished South End eatery is still a place you go to make discoveries. Recommended: the Vietnamese pancake appetizer and the beef marinated with lime juice as well as anything over rice vermicelli. Don’t neglect the list of traditional Vietnamese dishes at the back of the menu.
Beer geeks and comfort food seekers have a new option in this up-and-coming neighborhood. Indulgent dishes like a chicken and waffle sandwich, fish and chips, and a beer-glazed Angus burger pair with an ever-changing selection of craft brews.
Highlights of this pizza joint include an old car converted into a table, the Philly cheese steak, large slices of thin crust pizza, and deep-fried Oreos. A favorite among bar hoppers, Spinelli’s is open till at 5 a.m. all week in one of the city’s busiest bar corridors, and offers delivery until 4:30 a.m.
