Review: Strip T's

A perfect family restaurant with a playful menu
Under any other circumstances, I would actually not speak this restaurant's cheeky name out loud.

Review: Robinwood Café & Grille

Executing solidly in the classic New England Greek-American diner tradition
The diner — that hallowed bastion of old-time Americana, the predecessor to modern fast-food joints — is simply not one of our long suits. In this relatively weak field, Robinwood Café & Grille, a Jamaica Plain diner, executes solidly on the standbys.

Review: Café Zelda

A truly memorable experience
Café Zelda is one of those places that feels elegant but homey; luxurious but not pretentious.

Review: Red Lantern

Sonny Noto's Restaurant

A not-so-hidden gem with a three-generation track record in Eastie  
How does a restaurant fly under the radar for nearly 60 years?

Sofia Italian Steakhouse

Versatility and competence go a long way
I have to admit I giggled when I got a press release describing this restaurant as being located in the “white-hot West Roxbury-Dedham dining scene.” After all, the space had already killed a reasonably good steak house, Vintage, after a long closure in which it tried to upscale, then ended up downscaling by adding red-sauce Italian dishes.
