    Awards and Accolades

    • Chef Ken Oringer: James Beard Award for Best Chef: Northeast, 2001

    • Pastry Chef Monica Glass: named one of Food & Wine magazine’s best new pastry chefs in 2013

      While You're Waiting

      • Keep an eye out for celebrities and VIPs passing through this Boston hotspot—past patrons include a visiting prince.
      • Order a tiki-style, pre-Prohibition, or molecular-gastronomy-influenced cocktail from Todd Maul’s cutting-edge bar program.

        Inside Tip: Although the 7-, 10-, and 14-course tasting menus take diners on bite-by-bite journeys through Chef Oringer’s latest innovations, the plates tend to be rather small—even by tasting-menu standards. Stick to the regular menu for fuller (but by no means generous) portions.

        Vocab Lesson
        Mignonette: a sauce usually made of shallots, cracked pepper, and vinegar and served over raw oysters.
        Reindeer moss: a moss that resembles reindeer antlers; it must be cooked for extended periods of time before it’s edible for humans.

        While You're in the Neighborhood
        Before: Grab a latté and browse the tomes at Trident Booksellers and Cafe (338 Newbury Street).
        After: Catch a live folk or jazz concert at the Berklee Performance Center (136 Massachusetts Avenue).

        If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Since opening Clio in 1997, Chef Oringer has been on a restaurant-launching spree across Boston, but you needn’t travel far to try one of his other acclaimed ventures: Uni, a sushi and noodle bar, is located in Clio’s lounge.
