2015 Best Hybrid

Café ArtScience

The past couple of years have been big for hybrids—see the grocer-meets-restaurant Commonwealth, the sandwich-shop-meets-restaurant Tavern Road, and the coffee-shop-meets-bar Ames Street Deli. But none match Café ArtScience’s scope and ambition. Sure, it’s a forward-thinking bar, product space, and classroom. But it’s also one of our finer modern French restaurants.
