We’ve collected all of our family and friends’ favorite restaurants and cafes to give you a wonderful Boston dining experience.

Check out our Restaurants in Boston page for our favorite restaurants and cafes in some of the more touristy areas, namely Boston’s Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Downtown, Faneuil Hall & South End.

Or, if you’re going to be in the North End (the Little Italy of Boston), check out our top picks for Boston Italian restaurants.

And, soon we’ll be adding Boston dining links to several other areas including out into “the burbs”.

If you’re going to be in Boston in August or March, you might be lucky enough to be here for Boston Restaurant Week. This is definitely worth checking out (or even making a special trip for!).

Finally, we’d love to hear if you find a gem or two of your own, or if you simply have a great Boston dining story. You can share it all below (as well as read other people’s experiences).
