Neighborhoods: Kendall Square

2015 Winner: West Bridge

Yes, the egg in a jar is now famous among local food lovers. (If you haven’t yet experienced that pomme puree-meets-crispy duck skin classic, for shame.) But there’s much more to Matthew Gaudet’s small- and shareable-plates-focused menu, which gives a French kiss to New England victuals like veal and short ribs. Add crafty cocktails and a buzzing terrace overlooking Kendall Square, aglow with the East Coast’s coolest startup scene, and West Bridge hatches something special.
