My wife and I went here recently for her birthday. We took advantage of the $80 after 8:00 pm deal. The food was fantastic and our waiter was amazing. He went out of his way to wish my wife a happy birthday. He also gave us a special dessert since she did not like the options on the $80 after 8:00 menu. We will be going back soon! More

We loved the food and beer selection at City Tap. The services was very good. Had a great table in smaller room next to main dining area. It was 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon in winter and they were packed. Luckily I had made a reservation for 1 pm and they were able to seat us right away however people who did not have a reservation were given a wait time of 1+ hours More

Contemporary American | Dover, New Hampshire

Over the years, we’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy several of the “World’s Top” restaurants. But even in those dining moments that we will never forget, the desire / impulse to book another (actually more than one) reservation at the same restaurant (especially even before the meal had ended) has never struck us... until we experienced Stages and shared an evening with Chef Evan and Shara. It may be an hour away from home and the opposite direction from “the city”, but Stages gets our vote for one of New England’s top... no, the “World’s Top” restaurants. What Chef Evan puts together is an intimate, relaxed, unhurried, and amazing dining experience that takes your palate to new levels. It isn’t just the flavors (which are amazing) but the incorporation of smell, texture, temperature and (if you choose) great wine pairings that make for a truly complete dining experience. If you are considering a night at one of “Boston’s Best” (see the Magazine’s 2018 list - we’ve enjoyed... truly enjoyed... the majority of them), we recommend you skip them and drive north. “The Best” is in Dover, NH. Thank you, Chef Evan, for the ideal dining experience! More

1855 La voile wine bar1855 La voile wine bar
$$$$
French | Back Bay, Boston

1855 – the year of the first official classification of Bordeaux wines following the World’s Fair in Paris.  Bordeaux is, of course, known as being one of the most prestigious wine regions of the world and a good glass of Bordeaux is a rite of passage for learning to love a good bottle of wine. This was the inspiration for our bar à vin (wine bar) – to inspire a love of wine.
1855’s wine list is comprised of more than 250 different varieties of French wine, not only from Bordeaux, but from all across France. Above and beyond including well-known classics on the list at 1855, we wanted to highlight some of the little known gems that can be discovered from boutique, small batch vineyards.

The 1855 Bar à Vin also features traditional French cuisine, served primarily in the form of delicious small plates, thus presented in a more casual and shareable way than at a traditional restaurant. However, we also offer full course menus for those who want to stay for dinner. More

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
