I had an amazing time at Porto last night. I have been here a few times before but this time was none like the others. The general manager Joe is so friendly and welcoming. He truly made my experience great. I will return once a week just to eat the delicious food and say hello to Joe. Thank you once again! More

Was there for early Sunday brunch. Would have given a higher rating but our party of 6 was seated downstairs in a makeshift seating area in the hallway leading to the larger dining area. Constant traffic going by. The rest of the restaurant seemed charming, but felt we got the short end of the stick. Very friendly efficient service, and everyone pleased with their food. More

Italian | North End, Boston

This is not just a "top ten" brunch spot. This was THE BEST brunch we have ever had. Food is ridiculously good - wholesome, delicious, abundant, paced perfectly, and satisfying to the last bite. Not a soft spot in the lineup. Fried dough with warm apple compote leads off, followed by a breakfast flatbread perfectly topped with runny eggs. You will want seconds and may even brave another slice, but there is so much more to come. The omelet taco sits in the three-hole and is in no danger of being moved down in the order. The combination of italian sausage, pico de gallo, egg, cilamtro, and cheddar in a warm taco resulted in fireworks straight out of Remy's strawberry and cheese scene from Ratatouille. Sweet greens in the cleanup spot was just the respite we needed, and they paved the way for the parmesan-dusted truffle fries. Not a single shard was left in the basket at our table, even with the chicken and waffle finale on deck. And the finale did not disappoint. What might be your entire brunch entree at other restaurants -- buttermilk-fried boneless fried chicken atop a belgian waffle with cinnamon butter and warm maple syrup -- here stands as the finishing touch on a flawless meal. If the food itself were not enough to invite you inside Table (and it should be!), the combination of impeccable service (shout-out to Meaghan - you rock!) and the warm hospitality of the owner/chef, Jen, make it feel like you are guests at a friend's house rather than patrons at a restaurant.

Tasting menu was awesome — and not one where you go home hungry! Food came out perfectly timed. Most tender lamb ever. Sensational scallop. Special touches on everything. Super romantic ambience. Staff was above and beyond. It was snowing and James actually swept the path in front of me going out to my car. Really a wonderful time. 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.
