Best of Boston

1997 Best Al Fresco Restaurant

Upstairs at the Pudding

The minute you step out of the high-ceilinged dining hall and onto the lush green patio, you will be transported to another world. Sip a cappuccino amid roses and bougainvillea; enchant your mate under starlight. Rumor has it that the restaurant’s proprietor gets up before dawn to pamper this fantastic roof garden.
