Best of Boston
2015 Best First-Date Bar/Restaurant
Chinatown’s upscale hot-pot joint Q Restaurant hits all the right notes for a first date. It boasts mood lighting as well as a crowd-pleasing (but not pandering) beverage selection. The cook-it-yourself cuisine provides an instant conversation starter, while the menu accommodates herbivores, low-carbers, anti-glutenites, and pretty much every other dietary restriction imaginable. Things going poorly? You’re within sprinting distance of various MBTA lines. Hitting it off? Keep the party going at Shōjō, right around the corner.
