Best of Boston

2011 Best Beacon Hill Restaurant, Casual

75 Chestnut

Through every season, weekends as much as weeknights, this gathering spot/watering hole fills up with Beacon Hillbillies, well-heeled families, and politicos alike seeking solid fish and chips (and usually multiple cocktails). Sunday brunch gets so busy, it looks like a preppy convention just rolled into town.
