Best of Boston

2021 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Back Bay

Saltie Girl

In the big-screen dramatization of the Back Bay’s pandemic response, Saltie boss Kathy Sidell (Diane Keaton), megaphone in hand, directs an army of staffers to close next-door Met Club, give her popular oysteria the run of the larger space, and turn the original pint-size digs into a baller curbside seafood-pizza joint, as a triumphal French horn erupts in the background. Which is…pretty close to reality
