2012 BEST Charlestown Restaurant, Neighborhood

Navy Yard Bistro

The emptiness of Charlestown’s streets might leave you wondering: Is everyone hiding from bank robbers? Dodging Hollywood film crews? Nah—they’re all mingling at this secluded bistro, sipping the daily wine specials and enjoying buttermilk-fried oysters and braised-duck pappardelle. When the patio is open, it feels like you’re in some far-off town instead of blocks from I-93 and the Garden (and whatever fancy hotel Ben and Jennifer happen to be staying in this weekend).
