Dorchester's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
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.
