Fodor's Expert Review Ten Tables

$$$ Jamaica Plain French

Jamaica Plain's postage stamp–size, candlelit space is an enchanting mix of Gallic elegance and chummy neighborhood revelry—both in the atmosphere and the food. Simple but high-quality dishes such as lamb meatballs with tomato jam, duck-fat dumplings with Cognac cream, and house-made pasta with garden vegetables seamlessly seal the deal. Tasting menus (also available for vegetarians and vegans) make ordering easy. Although regulars usually reserve a table online, the stylish, laid-back bar always has 24 seats available on a walk-in basis and offers the full dinner menu or small bar bites.
