The November issue of Boston Magazine has compiled a list of the Top 50 Restaurants in Greater Boston, including five from our neighborhood!

#7 – Lenox SophiaLenox Sophia, a cozy and intimate culinary hot spot is located on A Street, and led by Chef Shi Mei.  The menu features a seasonal prix fixe package with a vegetarian option and a BYOB license.

#18 – Grace by Nia – Located in the bustling Seaport District, the accolades for Grace by Nia keep rolling in! This upscale southern and soul food restaurant features live entertainment and seems to be the place for celebrity sightings! 

#24 – Bar Volpe – This West Broadway restaurant is James Beard Best Chef Northeast’s second location in the neighborhood – Fox & the Knife is the first!  Bar Volpe features Southern Italian cuisine – think seafood, vegetables and of course, pasta!

#37 – Row 34 – A local favorite for years, Row 34 is chic but casual and approachable, located on Congress Street.  Row 34 features a menu of seafood from freshly shucked oysters to lobster rolls, fresh fish, clam chowder and more!

#45 – Chickadee –  Named after the Massachusetts state bird, Chickadee serves up lunch and dinner with seasonal New England ingredients with a dash of Mediterranean. It’s located on Drydock Ave. in the Ray Flynn Marine Park.  You can check out their menus here! 

Editor’s note – now, before you go and jump down my throat saying that the Seaport and Fort Point aren’t part of South Boston, then how come those areas of the neighborhood have South Boston Resident Parking? Seaport and Fort Point are part of South Boston.
