Best of Boston

2002 BEST Jamaica Plain Restaurant, Neighborhood

Perdix

Everything about this tiny store-front boîte makes you wish that you, too, had bought a fixer-upper in Jamaica Plain. Chef Tim Partridge’s menu is the kind of food you’d cook at home if only you had more time, with basic but tempting dishes from roasted spring lamb with fingerling potatoes and watercress to simple seared sea scallops.
