One of Boston’s favorite Chef’s is Joanne Chang, so it should not be surprising that her namesake Asian eatery, Myers + Chang, would be one of the most popular spots in Boston. Joanne holds a degree in applied mathematics and economics from Harvard and was originally a management consultant before making the switch to culinary arts. She would go on to work at the world renowned Payard in NYC and come back to Boston where she worked at Mistral. After opening her successful Flour bakery empire throughout Boston, both her and her husband Christopher Myers saw a missing piece to the growing South End dining scene — tasty and stylish pan Asian cuisine and thus Myers + Chang was born. Joanne drew inspiration from Taiwanese soul food and the street food you find throughout Southeast Asia. Her interpretation of favorite dishes from the region are personal and sometimes loose but always feature fresh and when possible local ingredients. The result is something truly delicious. The design is equally appealing, a colorful and lively space which almost feels like a chic diner. The portions are perfectly balanced, which allows for ordering several dishes and courses to share. For those who have trouble making their minds, Monday & Tuesday “Date Night” is a great idea. The restaurant offers theme menu groupings of fives dishes for $45 each with a catchy names reflecting the assortment, for seafood order a “long walk on the beach” for something stick to your ribs comforting try the “Netflix and chill.”
