RESTAURANTS

Boston restaurants beg to be discovered - one table at a time. Hosting cuisine from all parts of the globe, Boston has a fantastic array of dining options. New restaurants are constantly popping up, especially in Boston’s South End. The South End hosts some of Boston's favorite dining spots, especially along Tremont Street aptly crowned restaurant row, conveniently located at the corner of our street.

Most restaurants in the South End are typically smaller in size, superior in quality with chic atmospheres & intriguing environments. You will feel more like a well-versed local than a tourist at any of the tables below. Please use this map of local restaurants to plan your dining experience, and remember we are always happy to arrange for reservations.
