Best of Boston

2013 Best New Restaurant, South

Steel & Rye

With its exposed pipes, sky-high ceiling, and wood finishes, the 7,000-square-foot Steel & Rye has an atmosphere best described as industrial-farmhouse chic, yet it’s as homey a restaurant as you’ll find—the type of place you might want to try on a ho-hum weeknight, or might want to make into a big deal for the weekend. The food, of course,is what seals the deal: Try the homemade flatbreads and pasta.
