Best of Boston

2004 Best Back Bay Restaurant, Neighborhood

Stephanie’s on Newbury

When browsing the shops on Newbury Street leaves you peckish, pop into this Back Bay mainstay, still serving reliably tasty dressed-up comfort food after 10 years in business. Snag a seat at a sidewalk table and watch the world amble by as you dig into the satisfyingly messy Cuban sandwich (roasted pork, ham, pickles, and Swiss) or the simple and classic lobster roll. At brunch, the creamy crab cake Benedict with jalapeño hollandaise is reason enough to linger.
