2013 Best Prix Fixe

East by Northeast

Prix fixe doesn’t have to mean predictable. At this Inman Square restaurant, Phillip Tang offers a chef’s-whim selection of Asian-inspired small plates—pork-belly-stuffed buns, crisp daikon salads, chewy hand-rolled noodles—in generously portioned five- or eight-course tasting menus, letting you sample a dizzying array of dishes at a very fair ($35 or $45, respectively) price.
