Best of Boston

2005 BEST Restaurant, General Excellence, South

Sintra Restaurant

This minimalist Braintree bistro offers some of the freshest flavors this side of the Azores. With dishes such as pan-roasted monkfish with snap pea—saffron risotto, chef Brian Jenkins (formerly of Blu and Fava) melds Portuguese cuisine with clever touches of creative Mediterranean, Spanish, and New American. The well-priced wine list is also well chosen, and the setting is simple but pretty.
