Best "new" restaurant in Boston

Hello! My husband and I used to dine out 2-3 times a week... until we had kids. Now, we have a date night only once a week. We always tried new restaurants in the city before but these days, we have been going to mostly same restaurants we like (Deuxave, Market by Jean Georges, o ya, Ten Tables, Toro, B&G Oysters, Bistro du Midi, Coppa, etc). Can anybody suggest any new restaurant we should try? We like pretty much anything as long as it is GOOD :) Thank you!

  1. Depends. How new is "new" for you?

    Bergamot, Bondir, Journeyman,Area Four, West Bridge all seem to be in your wheelhouse.

      Agreed, from your list, it seems you may be missing out on the newer Cambridge/Somerville places.

    2. Add Puritan & Co. in Inman Square, Cambridge to that list. Casa B in Union Square Somerville is a terrific date spot. Ask for seat 12 at the Kitchen Bar where you can watch the action. Really cool.

        1. You might give Cinquecento a try, in the old Rocca space. Food is good and the free parking is a bonus.

            Was there the other night and endorse it highly!

              Had another great meal there last night. The food is quite good, however, the restaurant can be VERY noisy if crowded. This might not be great for a "date night" (though if Toro doesn't bother the OP, they should be fine here).

            2. Totally unlike anything mentioned, but Shoko is really fun.
