50 Best Restaurants: The House-Made Ingredients at Ten Tables JP

Ten Tables’ seasonal food and cozy atmosphere make for a lovely evening, but it’s the proprietor’s commitment to keeping the house-made ingredients at the highest quality that makes us feel good about going back. The effort that goes into the food is matched by the excellence of the drink menu. All mixers are made in house, the wine list is filled with an evolving array of local winemakers that practice organic and biodynamic wine making and they import their signature TT beer from the Berkshire Beer Company. The drink menu changes, but look out for their version of a hot toddy made with French apple brandy and the house made apple cider. (597 Centre St. Jamaica Plain.
