Best of Boston

2024 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Dorchester

Comfort Kitchen

The dining scene in Boston’s largest neighborhood didn’t always reflect the area’s diversity — that is, until Comfort Kitchen came along. The restaurant at the intersection of Caribbean, African, Asian, and American soul-food cuisines offers everything from jackfruit sliders and harissa-date chicken bowls from the afternoon café to occasion-worthy plates (think: jerk-roasted duck leg with rice and peas) and Sumac Sour cocktails come dinnertime.
