Best of Boston

2012 Best Fenway/Kenmore Restaurant, Neighborhood

Audubon Circle

There aren’t many places where Asian pot stickers, pork schnitzel, and lobster rolls happily coexist on a menu, but Audubon’s eclectic mix of global and American comfort food simply works. The dimly lit spot on a nondescript section of Beacon Street is the perfect hideaway—and after throwing back a couple of BBC Steel Rail brews and snacking on grilled bread dunked in a silky white-bean purée, you’ll be glad you’re in on the secret.
