Need recommendation for dinner tonight - South Boston area
Looking for something new and exciting...something within decent price range.
I have a friend that just moved to the area and she's interested in checking out something yummy.
Nothing to eccentric....
any suggestions would be apprecatied.
Sadly, Franklin Southie is pretty much it in South Boston proper. I like St. Alphonzo and Cafe Polonia (Polish cuisine) for the food but neither have a bar area or much ambience. Not far, in Dorchester, you've got dbar, Ashmont Grill and Tavolo.
I like Amrheins although I know not everyone agrees. They do a good job with their surf and turf (filet mignon & stuffed shrimp) and I love the lobster mac & cheese when they have it on special. Once into the Fall they have their chicken rissotto in a maple glazed pumpkin which IMO is absolutely amazing. Not crazy about St. Alphonzo, but more because I found the staff to be somewhat standoffish. The sandwich I had there was quite good. Another option might be Cafe Portabella. I adore their seafood pizza with a nice glass of wine.
