Best of Boston

2023 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Jamaica Plain

Tres Gatos

The magic of this J.P. gem is that you can spend nine lives browsing the records and books in the back shop with a drink in hand before you even sit down in the main restaurant and peruse the Spanish menu. And where else can you sip a cocktail inspired by fabulous felines in pop culture, like Garfield and Crookshanks? Foodwise, the dinner paella tops the charts, while the sourdough brunch waffles are downright scene-stealing.
