2013 Best New Restaurant, West


The western ‘burbs were abuzz this year with several hot new openings, but none as significant as the lovely Sycamore, in Newton Centre. Here, co-chefs David Punch and Lydia Reichert are serving up top-notch bistro food—a spring-bean cassoulet, suckling-pig confit—in an elegant, sexy atmosphere.
