Best Things to Eat in BostonHow do these rankings work?
Tico has a fun atmosphere, delicious food, amazing cocktails, cold beer, lots of tequila, cool music and great people watching, but the best thing about it? Hands down their perfectly juicy burger. The Tico Takedown Burger comes with Jack cheese, pickled jalapenos, pulled pork and chipotle, and there’s also a simply perfect cheese ‘n’ bacon.
They do some of the best overall BBQ in the city and have over 200 Whiskies to choose from. All that is before you even start to talk about their seriously good wings.
A great place to come and watch the sport on TV. Pair up their craft beer with the juiciest and most flavoursome wings you could ever imagine.
Posto has a full menu with antipasti, insalate, handmade pasta, grilled meats and fish. But you come here for one reason and that is to have their incredible Neapolitan wood-fired pizza.
You can smell the oven as soon as you walk in the door which makes your choice very easy. Their pies are absolutely delicious and come served piping hot just out of the oven.
Blackbird Doughnuts specialises in two types of the sweet treats. Raised (made with a brioche dough) and cake (made with buttermilk and sour cream). The passion they put into making each one speaks volumes. See the specks of vanilla bean seeds? Pure quality.
The place to come on the list if you really want to let your hair down and treat yourself. Some of the dishes on the menu could have been created with the words “cheat meal’ in mind.
So many great options to choose from but their chicken and waffles (seen below) are very hard to beat.
This lively restaurant, lounge and nightclub from popular chef Giovanna Huyke is one of the top spots for Caribbean – and in particular, Puerto Rican – fare in the city. As well as traditional bites, there’s funky twists on PR dishes. Think: yuca croquettes stuffed with Provolone cheese, a ‘Build-Your-Own’ mofongo and a pernil hash brunch dish.
Stick around for music and good vibes as the night goes on.
Abe & Louie’s sets the standard for classic American steakhouses across the country, with its superb flavour combinations and superior service. Coupled with an award-winning wine list featuring more than 200 globally sourced palates, Abe & Louie’s in Boston, and its sister restaurant in Boca Raton, remain beloved East Coast landmarks.
You’ll want to come with a serious appetite though as the portions are absolutely huge.
