Best of Boston

2012 Best Dorchester Restaurant, Neighborhood

224 Boston Street

Nothing says charming like this adorable restaurant, situated in a cottage complete with a garden of tulips. Once inside, you’ll be sated by apps like delicate ahi tuna tartare with wonton crisps, and homey entrées like cod cakes with zucchini fries. The whole experience proves that sometimes, a book can be judged by its cover.
