Boston's Best Restaurants - Time Out Boston

While the city may be better known for its sights and museums, culture and universities, Boston restaurants are becoming an attraction in their own right. An impressive roster of local culinary talent is fostering a dining scene to rival that of New York or Chicago—in fact, some local stars, such as Ken Oringer, who opened an NYC location of Toro in 2013, are expanding into other food capitals. The city may be small, but its many neighborhoods offer plenty of diversity. In the North End, Boston's "Little Italy," Old World-style cooking is a way of life, whereas a high proportion of frequently cited destination restaurants are in Downtown Boston and Back Bay. Some of the most ground-breaking chefs tend to emerge in up-and-coming enclaves of Cambridge, Somerville and Jamaica Plain.
