Best of Boston

2012 Best Jamaica Plain Restaurant, Neighborhood

Grass Fed

Within weeks of its spring opening, this spot from Ten Tables maven Krista Kranyak won the hearts of J.P. residents with Parmesan-truffle fries, Baileys-spiked vanilla milkshakes, and (what else?) grass-fed burgers topped with everything from harissa aioli to fried oysters. There are lots of other great options, too, like fried-shrimp po’ boys, turkey clubs, and kraut-topped hot dogs. Little surprise, then, that the small space is packed nightly with stroller-toting families eating elbow-to-elbow with too-cool hipsters.
