Fodor's Review

This soulful, white-cloth restaurant is the project of chef-owner Tony Maws, one of Boston's landmark chefs. With a passion for all things fresh, local, and organic, he changes the menu daily, so options can range from a Spanish-style octopus to black bass to pork done three ways. Sunday is Chef's Whim Night, meaning that after 9 pm you'll eat four-to-six courses of whatever Maws feels like cooking for a discounted price ($45 to $57). Insider's tip: head to the back bar for some of the city's best cocktails and Maws's award-winning burger, a juicy charred beef patty enriched with bone marrow and suet served on a bun with all the trimmings. Only 18 bar burgers leave the kitchen each night, so arrive early if you want one.
