Best of Boston

2013 Best East Boston Restaurant

Ko at the Shipyard

We mourned the loss of a local gem with the closing of Scup’s in the Harbour, but when it was replaced by this Australian spot—which offers meat pies, salads, and down-under treats like potato wedges with sweet chili sauce—we breathed a heavy sigh of relief. What to Order: The chicken pita; chickpea salad; meat pie.
