Globe Magazine’s Best of the New: Food and Restaurants


This past Sunday, the Boston Globe Magazine listed out the “Best of the New” for everything from Food, to People and Ideas and Shopping. I thought it would be fun to list these out, as I am just as out-of-touch with the dining scene right now as many of you.

Clearly, I haven’t been blogging… so clearly, I haven’t been eating out. Lots of stuff going on in my life right now… but the last thing I want to do is leave you all out in the cold. So here it is… the places that the Boston Globe thinks are the best thing going since sliced bread (pun intended):

  1. Hotel Chocolat
  2. Rowes Wharf Sea Grille
  3. Ten Tables
  4. South End Pita
  5. The Blue Ox
  6. Coriander Bistro
  7. The Friendly Toast
  8. Zing! Pizza
  9. Dorado Tacos and Cemitas
  10. Market
  11. Bistro du Midi
  12. Basta Pasta Enoteca
  13. Tupelo
  14. Sonic and Pollo Campero
  15. Technique
  16. Orta
  17. Boston Burger Company
  18. The Regal Beagle
  19. Il Casale
  20. Coppa
  21. Ginger Park
  22. Teranga
  23. Trina’s Starlite Lounge
  24. Bella Luna

The so called” Veggie Meccas“:

  1. Revitalive Cafe
  2. Peace o’ Pie
  3. Red Lentil

The “Old Places, New Wrinkles“:

  1. Pesactore
  2. New Shanghai
  3. Boston Speed Dog

And last, but certainly not least, “Markets and More“:

  1. Sherman Market
  2. H Mart
  3. Verrill Farm
  4. Central Bottle Wine + Provisions

So what tops BFW’s list? Well, I definitely need to get to Ten Tables. I feel like a jackass for never having been — to ANY location! I’d like to also try Dorado Tacos (have heard great things), Technique (just b/c it’s WAY cool that it’s run by the students at the Cambridge Culinary Arts School) and I am EXTREMELY anxious to pay a visit to H Mart (who doesn’t love a humongous Korean grocery store???!!!).

That said, I’m sure every place on this list is as good as the next. Been to any of these and want to give a little feedback? I’d love some recommendations. The Husband as me on a freezing spend… but it ended TODAY (2/1) — so I am ready for Date Night to start up again!
