Best of Boston

2008 BEST Restaurant, General Excellence, South

Square Café

Suburban restaurants often thrive precisely because they’re away from the city: A captive audience takes what it can get. Square Café by contrast, could compete fiercely in any Boston neighborhood. This New American eatery radiates a laid-back confidence born of a masterful affinity for different cuisines. Another compliment, and one that may come out wrong: Menu descriptions that sound like overwrought disasters (‘stuffed pork chop with spinach, prosciutto, cheddar and cornbread stuffing, sweet potato-vidalia gratin, and golden raisin demiglace’) turn out to be carefully calibrated balancing acts of texture and flavor.
