Don?t be fooled by the myriad flat-screens streaming sports and the expansive bar with a bottomless supply of draft beer. East End Grille?s menu is a bounty of housemade dishes crafted from locally sourced ingredients sure to give any restaurant a run for its money. Chefs carefully tuck mushrooms into tortolloni and pair baked halibut with a lemon and white wine sauce. The flatbread is reimagined with toppings that include sweet chili shrimp, house-pickled red onions, and strawberries. Even the appetizers skirt simplicity, from cornmeal-breaded fried green tomatoes to deep-fried brie slathered in strawberry compote. Once a week, East End Grille opens for brunch that boasts french toast with fresh strawberries and whip cream, burgers with house bacon-chili mayo, and wasabi bloody marys.

Inside Fasika Ethiopian Restaurant, companions gather around a traditional mesob, a table woven from colorful straw, for a communal dining experience. Upon the mesob’s concave surface, servers nestle a broad platter that holds a family-style meal neatly scooped out onto a foundation of spongy injera bread. Diners dive in together, tearing scraps of injera, which they use to pinch turmeric-spiced bites of beef, lamb, poultry, and veggies from the menu's selection of specialty dishes. Between bites, patrons can sip tej, a wine fermented from hops and raw honey that is served hot or cold. After meals, rounds of warming coffee signal the repast's end as clearly as the gong that sounds at the end of a Shakespearian soliloquy.

Vinny's Ristorante encapsulates the notion of a hidden gem—upon arrival at the address, customers often first think they're lost, as it appears they're mistakenly at a convenience store. The Italian eatery is tucked in the back of this store, so once customers spot red-checkered tablecloths, along with "the vaguely Sopranos-esque clientele sucking down pasta fazool," it's clear they've made it.

Boston magazine reviewers—who observed the Tony Soprano lookalikes when they deemed Vinny's worthy of the Best of Boston list for affordable Italian in 2006—highlight the restaurant's antipasto bar and "massive" portions of handmade pasta as the major draws. And although the word's been out for some time about this secluded Sicilian hotspot, Vinny's marinara and handmade mafalda noodles, impressive Zagat rating, and ceiling fans modeled after da Vinci's helicopter blueprints continue to captivate loyal regulars.

Anthony Capalino spent 14 years working on Newbury Street as a stylist in two salons: Pini Swissa and Runway Salon. But since opening his own salon?which features ample parking space, to boot?he still maintains ties with clients from his former salons, beyond sending them the occasional chain letter. Their loyalty is likely due to his artistic dedication to hair: He approaches each haircut like a layered sculpture, following the head's contours to create a natural shape that flatters each client's face. Beyond cuts, he tames frizz and curls with keratin treatments, pumps up volume and length with hair extensions, and adds dimension color and highlights. While Anthony and his stylists work, track lighting illuminates white chairs and walls accented by pops of orange, creating an ambiance as modern as the hairstyles they create.
