2013 BEST Diner
Despite a brief brush with fame following a 2011 appearance on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, Southie’s tiny Galley Diner remains a charmingly low-key spot for a good meal any time of day. The corned-beef-hash-and-cheese omelet (the “Southie”) is a favorite, but the finest breakfast here is the handcarved ham, which is cut off the bone right in front of you, seared on the well-seasoned griddle, and served with a couple of over-easy eggs and a pile of crispy home fries.
