2012 BEST Jamaica Plain Restaurant, Neighborhood
Within weeks of its spring opening, this spot from Ten Tables maven Krista Kranyak won the hearts of J.P. residents with Parmesan-truffle fries, Baileys-spiked vanilla milkshakes, and (what else?) grass-fed burgers topped with everything from harissa aioli to fried oysters. There are lots of other great options, too, like fried-shrimp po’ boys, turkey clubs, and kraut-topped hot dogs. Little surprise, then, that the small space is packed nightly with stroller-toting families eating elbow-to-elbow with too-cool hipsters.
