Five Years Old and Counting!

Believe it or not, Boston's Hidden Restaurants recently turned 5 years old. But we still feel like a young site in some ways, as more and more media outlets continue to discover us, a large number of new restaurants have been posted to the site, and more folks than ever have been finding out about us of late. Who knows what the next 5 years will bring? Only time will tell...

Our Latest Restaurant Reviews

Here are a few dining spots that we recently featured...

Cafe Mangal, Wellesley, MA
a casual little cafe in Wellesley Center that turns into a romantic Mediterranean restaurant at night.

Pescatore, Somerville, MA
an outstanding Italian restaurant in the Ball Square section of Somerville that no one seems to know about.

Equator, Boston, MA
an exotic-feeling dining spot on the edge of the South End that features Thai food and much, much more.

Tennessee's, South Braintree, MA
a barbecue joint just off of Route 3 that doesn't look like much, but has truly excellent food.

Picnic Spots Around Boston

Now that the warmer weather is coming, it is time to start thinking about dining outdoors, and not just at outdoor restaurant patios. If you like the outdoors and are looking for places to picnic or have a quick bite to eat outside, you might be interested in our new feature.

Our Picnic and Outdoor Eating section features great spots around Boston where you can lay a blanket down or sit on a rock and enjoy a sandwich. And included here, of course, are places that aren't well-known. Enjoy this new feature, and please let us know of other places that might be adding to the list!
