I've been meaning to try some of Boston's best new restaurants, but haven't been able to get out that much for awhile now...

In your opinion, what are the 5 best new restaurants that have opened in the past 6 months to 1 year?

Some names to get you started (some of these may be a bit older): ASSB, Zoes, Soulfire, Beacon Street Tavern, Sauciety, District, LTK, Avila, Eastern Standard, Neptune, Toro, Douzo, Oishii Boston, OM, Ten Tables, Butcher Shop, B&G, 28 degrees, Lineage, Great Bay, Ashmont grill, kolbeh of kabob, petit robert, green st, middlesex, stella, domani

Let the list-making begin.

  1. I like Rendezvous (Cambridge, Central Square) a lot. And in my neighborhood (North End), La Galleria 33 and Eclano are excellent.

    1. It's been a pretty busy year for new restaurants. A few that I thought were good enough to return to a few times: Orinoco, La Brace, Taqueria El Amigo, Green Street, Rendezvous, Xinh Xinh, Toro (despite annoying service tics), Ashmont Grill.

      1. I agree with Rendezvous and Orinoco. I also enjoyed Sibling Rivalry and CK Shanghai in Wellesley.

        1. another yes to rendezvous. and though it's been open for more than a year, i also like ten tables.

          1. i'll follow the trend with rendezvous-- glad to see steve back in the mix.

            1. Himalayan Bistro in West Roxbury. Possibly the best Indian food I've had in Boston...

              Second choice would be the Ashmont Grill.

              1. Thanks so much for this thread! We're heading to Boston for Thanksgiving week and trying to set up some reservations. Been a while since we've been there.

                And the lists here are just great.
