Best of Boston

2004 BEST Restaurant, General Excellence, North

Red Rock Bistro & Bar

The sweeping view of the Boston skyline is nice (especially at sunset), but when it comes down to the matter at hand, Red Rock delivers the delicious goods: great food. Chef Allen Bohnert sticks to a primarily seafood menu with such traditional choices as a creamy clam chowder teeming with freshly shucked clams, as well as contemporary takes like roasted salmon with tamarind glaze and carrot flan. He also has an admirable touch with pork—don’t miss the “Pig Out,” a spread of pork served three ways.
