Best of Boston

2024 Best Restaurant, General Excellence


Isn’t pan-Mediterranean mezze pretty
much everywhere these days, you ask?
Why, yes it is — but chef-owner Cassie
Piuma’s free wheeling ethos produces
something above and beyond that (see:
her avocado muhummara and basturma
bánh mì
). You’ll understand the many award nods and accolades once you soak
up Sarma’s lively yet chill vibe, listen to
its erudite, earnest servers, and navigate
your own euphoric jaunt across a dozen
distinct culinary traditions.
