Best of Boston

2011 Best Romantic Restaurant, West


Pike traffic is a proven romance killer. Which is why it’s a good thing Newton has its own spot to sip, sup, and swoon. The dining room’s billowy fabric sets the tone for a special evening, while the dishes from chef Michael Leviton—juicy Crystal Valley chicken; delicate Rhode Island striped bass with preserved lemon and mint—romance your palate.
