At La Brasa, chef Daniel Bojorquez cooks whatever he feels like. The result? A menu that’s as exciting as it is inconsistent.

Dining Out: Row 34

At Island Creek Oyster's new sibling, the fish is always fresh—and the simplest preparations show it off the best.

Dining Out: Alden & Harlow

The menu at chef Michael Scelfo’s new Cambridge restaurant is fresh and local, but that’s beside the point.

Dining Out: Bondir Concord

The new Bondir is just as earnest as the original, but the awkward-to-graceful ratio is much higher.

With his newest restaurant, Jamie Mammano gives ultra-fresh seafood his signature swank treatment.

Dining Out: Sarma in Somerville

The latest addition to Ana Sortun’s restaurant empire turns up the volume on her signature eastern Mediterranean approach.

For his second restaurant, superchef Tony Maws dials back on the flourishes and works wonders with a grill.

Dining Out: Beacon Hill Bistro
