Best of Boston

2001 Best New Restaurant, West

Zebra’s Bistro and Wine Bar

A hip lounge and a cozy dining room with live weekly jazz and a great, affordably priced wine list, plus a menu packed with creative dishes and healthy options—what’s not to like? Zebra’s offers fresh, clean salads, and veggie appetizers (like straight-from-the-garden asparagus), and terrific daily specials such as handmade striped ravioli. We even get cravings for the simple bread presentation—crusty bâtardes with artichoke spread—that we can’t satisfy when we’re stuck in the city.
