Alcove Restaurant 2018

On Lovejoy Wharf in Boston/Quicksiver schist brushed finish bar top.

There’s a reason why we deemed this wharf-side West End spot one of the best new restaurants in Boston: Hospitality vet Tom Schlesinger-Guidelli is fostering a very particular, “farm coast”-inspired approach that culls inspiration from the New England seacoast’s agrarian, fishing and vineyard cultures to inform executive chef Maxime Fanton’s creative, Mediterranean-inflected menus. Finally, a buzzy new option for serious dining in a neighborhood better-known for its sports bars.
Try this: Preface the larger plates with a starting snack of charred Haas avocado served with a vibrant harissa aioli. Outrageously delish.
Hot tip: For something slightly more interactive than staring blankly at the wine list, adrift and alone, you can step inside one of two glass-enclosed wine rooms to browse bottles with one-on-one help from an Alcove expert.

50 Lovejoy Wharf, Boston, 617-248-0050, alcoveboston.com.
