My Favorite Meal: New Golden Gate

In this Chinatown institution, chef Jason Santos (Hell’s Kitchen finalist; formerly of Gargoyles on the Square) has found inspiration for his new Kennedy Greenway spot, Blue Inc., which opens this month. “I take all my new chefs there after a hard night of service,” he says. 66 Beach St., Boston, 617-338-7721.
