The Freshest Tables
One of the most anticipated openings of the summer is the Ames Boston Hotel’s own Cultivar. Chef Mary Dumont’s passion project sees her sourcing much of her fresh produce from a hydroponic garden on the premises, to come up with creative dishes like rabbit mortadella agnolotti with sugar-snap peas and pork cheeks with whey-braised carrots. In Fort Point, lately the scene of a major restaurant boom, two culinary players are leading the wave: Barbara Lynch’s contemporary trattoria Sportello and the lively oyster bar Row 34. In the Back Bay, quirky-named Saltie Girl is a temple to all things seafood, from sea urchin crudo to fried lobster and waffles — but the main event is the vast selection of tinned fare, like octopus, eel, and cockles. The quaint South End, with its endless lanes of photogenic brownstones, is also a brimming with don’t-miss eateries, chief among them Myers + Chang, an award-winning modern-Asian diner that also boasts a popular dim sum brunch.
