Best of Boston

2017 Best Casual Restaurant, North

Superfine Food

Fans of West Bridge mourned when the Kendall Square favorite closed, but chef Matthew Gaudet has returned triumphant some 30 miles north with Superfine Food, a super-casual joint in Manchester-by-the-Sea. Incorporating ingredients from local purveyors, the high-low menu features pizza and ribs—done to Gaudet perfection, naturally—as well as healthier options, including charred kale salad and a fish burger with crispy shallots. Beer and wine appropriately run the gamut from Bud Light to the Loire Valley.
