Best of Boston

2004 Best Charlestown Restaurant, Neighborhood


Part of the original English (as in Todd English) restaurant empire, Figs in Charlestown still serves delicious thin-crusted pies with simple toppings, innovative salads laced with blue cheese and toasted walnuts, and rich and warming plates of handmade pastas to the upwardly mobile. Rarely can you get such homecooked flavor or feeling in a restaurant. And with such earthly prices, the question really becomes, Why not eat here every night?
