2016 Best Casual Restaurant, West

Saltbox Kitchen

West Concord used to be known for a 5 & 10. Now it’s a culinary haven, with sunny Saltbox Kitchen leading the pack. Run by Ben Elliott (formerly of No. 9 Park) and sourced with ingredients from his nearby family farm, this newish hangout offers gourmet breakfasts, thoughtful to-go meals, and unusual lunches and dinners.
