Best of Boston
2012 Best Fort Point Restaurant, Neighborhood
The gleaming, U-shaped bar here is your gateway to Barbara Lynch’s homemade pastas (the tagliatelle with Bolognese is a perennial favorite) and sophisticated plates like whole-roasted trout with anchovies and olives. True, this casual trattoria can be pricey for a weeknight meal—especially when Drink, Lynch’s downstairs bar, is tempting you with aprés-dinner cocktails—but the return on investment is reliably delicious.
