2003 BEST South End Restaurant, Neighborhood

The Nightingale

It’s not surprising that a restaurant as charming as the Nightingale should occupy a space that has been home to some of the South End’s most charmed restaurants (Hamersley’s Bistro and Geoffrey’s, to name just two). With its apple-green walls, candlelit tables, and bistro menu, this cozy new restaurant-row entry, from the team behind the South End hipster haunt Delux Café, is a welcome addition. And the price is right. Entrées such as stuffed roasted chicken with fingerling potatoes, braised monkfish with littleneck clams, and roasted tomatoes on orecchiette pasta hover below $20, which makes a three-course meal for two an affordable indulgence.
