Best new ethnic restaurants?

BlakeGumprecht Sep 6, 2013 12:34 PM

I'm meeting a friend in Boston on Sunday and I'd like to try a new ethnic restaurant. I'm looking for nominations for the best new ethnic restaurants that have opened in the Boston area in the last 3-6 months.

My friend lives in Cambridgeport but we'll have a car. I'm a vegetarian so wherever we end up will have to be veg friendly. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

        Been to Istanbu'lu twice -- loved it the first time, not so much the second.

      Fair warning, there will be snarky responses coming. They will say that all food is technically ethnic in one way or another. Probably want to be a little more specific.

        Yes, I know. I've encountered that here before. I disagree with the belief that all food is ethnic, but really don't want to get in any arguments about that and don't intend to define the term. I think most reasonable people know what I mean. I'm just looking for a good place to eat and want to try someplace new.

          No snark but it would be helpful if we knew you wanted a particular ethnicity- Indian? Vietnamese? Korean? Northern Italian? German?

            I'm open-minded, so long as its veg friendly, though I'd also like to hear about other places, since I teach a geography of food class and maintain a list of Boston area ethnic restaurants for the class.
