2017 has been a very busy year for restaurant openings. Some neighborhoods have seen more openings than others, but throughout the city of Boston, there are lots of new and exciting places to try.
Too many, perhaps.
To help narrow your to-try list, here’s one 2017 opening you should know about in each Boston neighborhood. Some are straight-up outstanding on a citywide scale, some are unique to their areas, others are quirky and wonderful under-the-radar spots; all are worth exploring.
A few notes on geography: In short, we’re using the phrase “every Boston neighborhood” a little bit loosely here. We started with Boston’s official list of 23 neighborhoods but made a few arbitrary decisions to split some of those down further into popular squares or sub-districts, based on areas that we regularly cover and describe as neighborhoods. Fort Point and the Seaport District, for example, are not on Boston’s official neighborhood list, but they are designations that come up very frequently on Eater Boston. (Technically, they’re part of South Boston.) Dorchester is huge, so we’re including openings from a few different neighborhoods within it. We also omitted two official neighborhoods that didn’t have any restaurant openings in 2017, Bay Village and Hyde Park. (Did we miss an opening? Let us know.)
