Best of Boston

2012 BEST Davis Square Restaurant, Neighborhood

Five Horses Tavern

Davis Square has seen its share of exciting openings this year, but we continue to adore this tavern’s eccentric fare. The Kentucky-fried Cornish game hen comes with jalapeño-spiked mashed potatoes; the "lobstah" pizza is topped with pork belly and grilled corn; and Brussels sprouts get a kick from a fish-sauce vinaigrette. Those dishes—and the international beer list—are what keep our heart true.
