Best of Boston

2009 Best Host

Rachel Miller Munzer, Hungry Mother

Hungry Mother has become one of the Hub’s hottest tables not just for its smart take on Dixieland fare, but also for its southern hospitality. Credit the latter to Miller Munzer’s knack for making patrons feel they’re in their own private dining room, even when the place is packed (and heck, when isn’t it?).
