Best of Boston

2002 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, South


Rustic charm meets sophistication in Hingham’s happening flagship restaurant—from the funky décor and hip, laid-back crowd to the nouveau Italian menu. Chef Kevin Long, following in the accomplished foosteps of predecessors including Ken Oringer and Joe Simone, takes good advantage of the neighboring sea. Gems like whole shrimp with beefsteak tomatoes and Cerignola olives are best followed by the fantastic thin-crusted, wood-fired porcini mushroom and asparagus pizza or a plate of pan-roasted hake served over fresh pea anolini.
