Robyn’s Bar and Grill

Not your average ‘regular food’
With all the insanely expensive steakhouses going up, it’s good to see a quiet, steady revival of neighborhood pubs.

Fine, eccentric cuisine that’s hardly prison food
Nearly 20 years and more than $100 million later, it has been rebuilt as a luxury hotel, with a restaurant cleverly named Clink.

At the top of the food chain
I’m not supposed to like Wagamama, but I do. I’m not supposed to like chains, and Wagamama is a UK-based chain with 79 restaurants in 10 countries.

Covering all the bases with first-class Albanian and more
The “fork-tender grilled octopus” is true to its name and brings three tentacles almost big enough to carry off Captain Nemo of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea .

Smoken’ Joe’s Authentic Southern Barbeque

It's time to turn up the heat

Where 1950s specialities live at 1980s prices
Getting tired of reading about $40 steaks, $60 steaks, $120 Japanese Wagyu beef steaks?

Potbellies Kitchen

With food this good, you won't mind the bulge
Two trends are currently sweeping through the food universe: lavishly upscale steak houses and modest bistros featuring local produce.

Red Sky

At night, delight. But take warning.
The pitch for Red Sky is that it’s nicer, more upscale, and appeals to a slightly older crowd than the other nightspots around Faneuil Hall.

Flat Iron Tapas Bar

Big tatses, small packages
You can assemble small plates that add up to protein, vegetable, and starch, but it won’t feel like dinner.

Small plates rock big taste in SoWa
We don’t always want to be stunned; otherwise more of us would keep electric eels as pets.
