Neighborhoods: Inman Square

2015 Winner: Bergamot

OK, it’s a 10-minute walk from Inman proper, but so worth it. The delight starts from your first bites—an amuse-bouche compliments of the kitchen and bread slathered with ever-changing housemade butters, from BBQ to orange poppy seed—and continues with chef/co-owner Keith Pooler’s progressive American plates and Kelcey Rusch’s playful desserts. Throw in a nightly prix fixe option that lets diners feast on any three courses, plus eminently affable hospitality from GM/co-owner Servio Garcia and bar manager extraordinaire Paul Manzelli, and it’s no wonder Bergamot buzzes with devoted regulars every night of the week.
