Best of Boston

2001 Best Restroom, Women's


Yes, we know. Radius is a name that’s been dripping off foodies’ lips like a thick béarnaise sauce since it opened two and a half years ago. And now it’s getting yet another award that has nothing to do with food? Well, trust us—any interior this stark and masculine that still manages to make a women’s room feel inviting deserves notice. Simple bud vases collaborate with dim lighting in the cavernous and elegantly sweeping, lounge-like room. The streamlined basin sinks are matched by highly stylized soap dispensers (filled with grapefruit liquid hand soap from Fresh) that are so adorable, otherwise staid ladies have been known to make off with them.
