    Buttermilk & Bourbon is one of my favorite restaurants -- the food is always delicious, there is something for everyone, and the flavor combinations are outstanding. I always bring out-of-town visitors here, and they loved it too! Our favorites are the mac & cheese and the biscuits, and we add oysters too sometimes!

    Always a go to! Went with my husband and two boys (15 and 13) on a whim and was able to get an early res for New Year’s Day. I got the gluten free pasta with truffle sauce and mushrooms - chef’s kiss amazing - and everyone else had their own lobster ravioli dishes - yes, that good!! We CRAVE this place. Make a res through Open Table to make seating easier, then head to Dolce at the corner for gelato and/or and affogato for dessert :) You won’t be disappointed.

    I’m a (very) long time Joe’s customer. I had New Year’s Day brunch with my newlywed daughter & son-in-law who need gluten/free. Our server was wonderful on such a busy day! Food delicious, as usual. The salmon is always a favorite of ours. Added note: The kitchen is very careful about GF prep & the manager brings the GF orders to the table. P.S. Joe’s servers & managers are awesome.

    Eggs Benedict is my favorite brunch so I order it everywhere. It is usually good but rarely great. The eggs were perfectly cooked- which is rare. It was delicious- both the eggs and potatoes.

Discover Dorchester

With Dorchester's close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and its views of Boston Harbor, it comes as no surprise that Dorchester is home to a number of restaurants offering classic New England fare, including clam chowder and lobster rolls. But Dorchester's dining scene goes far beyond traditional dishes. You can find a number of gastropubs that use a variety of ingredients, like fresh sea scallops and clams, in unique and creative ways. You can enjoy a vermicelli bowl at a Vietnamese spot or pair jerk chicken with a tropical drink at a Jamaican restaurant. With Boston being a home to many Cape Verdean immigrants, Dorchester also hosts restaurants offering authentic Cape Verdean dishes, such as fried yucca.
