2014 Winner: Navy Yard Bistro

Someone once told us that Bostonians are cold and unfriendly. They’ve obviously never spent an evening at the Navy Yard, where regulars are warmly remembered and first-timers feel instantly at home. A friendly staff is the source of this welcoming vibe, further enkindled by hits-the-spot staples—buttermilk-fried oysters with crispy nuggets of andouille, ginger-sake salmon that will flake away on your fork. After you reluctantly finish your last glass of delicious housemade sangria, you can stroll the shipyard’s piers to take in spectacular views of downtown.
