Craving Chicken and Dumplings. Where to go in Boston?


The title pretty much says it all. The only place I know of that would definitely have chicken and dumplings is Cracker Barrel. Any other spots that might give me my fix (and do it better)?

Thank you for your help!

  1. Geoffrey's in Back Bay seems to have it, but I've never been. Here's their dinner menu (pdf):

    1. Hungry Mother has a great take on it, though not quite traditional. The dumplings are more like gnocchi.

      1. Also, not exaaaactly the same, but New England Soup Factory has very nice chicken soup (rich, schmaltzy broth) with absolutely brobdingnagian softball-like matzoh balls.


          make it, its not rocket science. This is a super easy meal to make.

          1. It was the soup of the day at All-Star Sandwich Bar yesterday. I didn't have it but perhaps you could call and see when they will feature it again.
