Best of Boston

2014 Best Restaurant, General Excellence, South

Steel & Rye

A restaurant is only as good as its service, and at this hot spot helmed by chef Chris Parsons, that service is impeccable, from the gratis valet parking to the warm waitstaff, who happily point diners to their favorite house-made pastas (don’t miss the bucatini with lobster and smoky pulled pork).
