Best of Boston

1998 Best Restaurant, Best Prospects

Radius, No. 9 Park, Lumiere

Though nothing stood out as Best New Restaurant, there will certainly be competition in the category next year. Three new restaurants are slated to open in the coming months, from an all-star roster of chefs: Michael Schlow, formerly of Cafe Louis; Barbara Lynch, from Galleria Italiana; and Michael Leviton, late of Upstairs at the Pudding. We’re waiting with bated palate.
