Visitors and business people alike have their choice of popular Boston restaurants in areas of the city such as the narrow alleys of the North End, the bustling avenues of the Back Bay, and the quirky neighborhoods of Allston and Jamaica Plain. From upscale and high-end places in and around Boston such as Menton, Clio, Sorellina, and o ya to casual and inexpensive restaurants such as Santarpio's Pizza, Kelly's Roast Beef, Regina's, and Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage, Beantown seems to have a restaurant for just about everyone.

For those of you who are willing to search just a little bit, however, there are also many little-known restaurants in the Boston area and the rest of New England that are just waiting to be found. This is where the Boston's Hidden Restaurants website comes into play; within this site are hundreds of terrific Boston-area and New England restaurants that are frequented mainly by locals (for example, Alia Ristorante in Winthrop and the Centre Street Cafe in Jamaica Plain), as well as places that even many locals don't know about (for instance, Louis in Quincy and the Dudley Chateau in Wayland). Typically, a review of a new restaurant is posted every week or two (please check out the blue box above), with the main focus being on Boston-area restaurants, though occasionally we do review dining spots elsewhere in Massachusetts and the rest of New England if they tend to be particularly special places.

Tired of crowds at your favorite restaurant in Boston, Cambridge, or Providence? Frustrated by having to make reservations days in advance of a meal? If so, then come in to our restaurant site and learn about some terrific little-known dining places in the Boston and New England area. These restaurants may be off the beaten track, but they are worth checking out!
