2016 Best New Restaurant, West

True West

A jolly gastropub in sleepy Acton? It’s a reality thanks to True West, the new sister restaurant of New Hampshire’s 7th Settlement Brewery. The pub has revitalized West Acton village with solar-brewed craft beer and a fun, casual menu—crisp tater tots, pulled-pork sandwiches with tomato jam—that attracts locals in droves.
