From Our Editors

Mela earned its reputation as a South End hotspot by reinterpreting and expanding upon the culinary traditions of the Indian subcontinent. Sometimes, that means producing pristine versions of indian classics. Chefs still prepare classic curries, the rich, spicy sauces housing tender mouthfuls of goat, tilapia, and lamb shank. They also command the cooking power of super-hot tandoori ovens, which produce everything from mahi-mahi tikka to a dozen types of naan, a flatbread named for the involuntary noise made when opening your mouth to take a bite.

Other times, however, the cooks' culinary mission takes them into more unconventional territory. During the restaurant's famous hot stone meals, waiters deliver a sizzling, thoroughly oiled hot stone slab along with a tray of spiced meat of fish strips. Diners lay out the strips on the slab, cooking them right at the table before eating them hot off the rock. The bartenders, for their part, aim to accentuate the flavors found on the menu with original, Indian-themed cocktails that pair well with the spices found throughout Indian cuisine.

Boston Restaurant Guide

Boston may be known for its seafood, but it also has a lot more to offer to anyone willing to venture outside of their own neighborhood for a meal. The exciting cultural variety in the city is put on display in many ethnic Boston restaurants. With the diversity of cuisine available, it is possible to travel the world by plate without ever leaving the city.

Pasta E. Pomodoro in Boston's North End offers authentic Italian dishes that cannot be found on the menus of more commercialized Italian joints. An example is Pollo Ripienoa, which is a breaded chicken breast scattered with mushrooms, asiago cheese and prosciutto and served with garlic mashed potatoes and a shiitake Marsala wine sauce. Pomodoro also serves a variety of appetizers and desserts to complete any hearty Italian meal.

Get a taste of the Mediterranean while dining in Boston with a meal at Oleana Restaurant. Located in the Inman Square neighborhood, Oleana is known for its Turkish fare. For appetizers, order the chickpea crepe with a cinnamon aioli, a speciality of the house. For entrees, the restaurant is best known for its lamb steak cooked in Turkish spices and served with a fava bean moussaka. Make sure to save room for dessert and end the meal with one of Oleana's specialty ice creams. The cocoa-rose ice cream served with date-rose truffles is a very popular choice.

A guide to dining in Boston is never complete without a seafood restaurant on the list. End the experience with cuisines from around the world with a meal at the famous Neptune Oyster in the North End. Choose from classics like New England Clam chowder or try something more unique to the area like steamed Wellfleet Littleneck clams in a sauce of wine and garlic. The Neptune Oyster is also well known for its raw bar that is always stocked with fresh shellfish and stays open well past the dinner hour.

True Boston food is a multi-ethnic blend of cuisines that locals can sample from each night. When considering what to have for dinner, be adventurous and try some of the more unusual dining options that Boston restaurants located throughout the city have to offer.
