Best of Boston

2022 Best Shopping Complex, West

The Street

Always a fun spot for al fresco shopping and dining, the Street has become a must-visit even for city dwellers in recent months thanks to an infusion of topnotch local talent — from lauded private chef David Welch’s first restaurant, Chef Dave’s, to Wendy Dodson’s Hummingbird Books. Even with all of the new choices, though, we’re still suckers for a Shake Shack frozen custard eaten outside on the Green.
