Boston's Best 2002

  • e

The Improper Bostonian is out today with their annual Extravaganza dated July 10. Some surprises, many predictable choices.
Bagel spot undiscussed here, Chinese spot as expected.
Lots to look at--you comment

  1. As you say, only "some" surprises. VERY few buried gems appear.

    And the few that are not discussed here are really not that good!

    For example, their bagel winner, Bagel Rising, speaks more to the difficulty of finding a decent bagel in Boston than it does to Bagel Rising's quality. Bagel Rising's bagels are mediocre at best. Good fodder for sandwiches for college students but really not worth consuming on their own.
