The Butcher Shop (Boston)

Not too many objections to this list, though I would have found alternatives to Bar Boulud ('cause I think it's blah and very overpriced), Wink & Nod (which of three very different kitchen crews are we voting on?), and Moonshine 152 (way too new, not even out of its shakedown cruise).

I know it's just for fun and inevitably seems to get won by whoever has the best social-media marketing organization to get out the vote, but I'd be curious what others think of the list.
