Visitors to London often rave about the Notting Hill antique market that stretches across Portobello Road. There, collectors and Europe's fashion elite rummage for finds from all over the world. Inspired by the district's magic, style experts Kristina Hare Lyons and Marina Kalb dreamed up a way to bring a little Portobello Road to Boston.
Inside their intimate boutique, the fashionistas stock clothing, accessories, and home furnishings sourced from around the globe. Gifts and treasures from Italy, Brazil, Nepal, and, naturally, the United Kingdom line the shelves, bearing the names of designers such as Miguel Ases, Chan Luu, and Byron Lars. And, in the spirit of the namesake market, Lyons and Kalb make it their mission to seek out rare and one-of-a-kind items not sold elsewhere in the city.

Lapels Dry Cleaning's professional staff purifies prized fabrics with environmentally friendly practices that have earned the cleaners certification as an EnviroStars business. Prices vary from location to location, but customers can drop off sullied sweaters ($6.25+), pants ($6.35+), two-piece suits ($13.45+), or down comforters ($30+) for a cleansing encounter with an odorless, nontoxic solvent. As a further commitment to eco-friendly commerce, Lapels recycles all hangers and bags, and uses only low-energy LED signage rather than coal-powered billboards or easily weaponized nuclear marquees.

The Fireplace's chef and owner, Jim Solomon, uses locally sourced ingredients, native seafood, the choicest meats, and artisanal cheeses to create regional New England cuisine for brunch, lunch, and dinner—including a variety of light summer fare. Each dish reflects the season's choicest ingredients and the region's colonial influence with ingredients like summer squash and tri-cornered hats. Light a patriotic summer firecracker in your mouth with the Big American Salad Niçoise ($26), which arranges sesame-crusted tuna and a cornucopia of toppings over Boston lettuce. Locavores, meanwhile, can devour something other than locals with twin mini lobster rolls with green apple slaw ($20). At lunch, a spit-roasted chicken BLT with fries ($12) introduces an extra-succulent meat to bacon's classic counterbalance. For the ethereal eater who can exist in two states simultaneously, savor a brunch of crispy duck hash with fried eggs and toast ($15).
