Best of Boston

2003 BEST New Restaurant, North

197 East Main

After tenures at Sage and eat, chef Nick Speros has migrated north from Boston and opened 197 East Main. If you’re smart, you’ll follow him. Tuck into the rib-eye or native halibut, and you’ll see what we mean. The seafood is fresh off the Gloucester day boats and the rich entrées come with tender vegetables that provide the perfect textural contrast. Speros wanders the dining room to get his guests’ reactions firsthand. Our feedback? Keep up the good work.
