2014 Winner: Puritan & Co.

Not a single detail has been overlooked. Oven-warm Parker House rolls land with sea salt-speckled butter. Ask for a recommendation from the funky, thoughtful wine list and you’ll discover little-known stunners like bright Sicilian Occhipintis. Crudites showcase handsome veggies, like carrots recently pulled from the dirt, pure as a scene from Peter Rabbit. And seasonal suppers—be it short ribs or Muscovy duck—are so beautifully and precisely plated, you may be tempted to ask chef/owner Will Gilson if he’s going to art school on the side. This is where style meets substance, from start to finish.
