I used to be pretty active on this board for the better part of 10 years until I moved away from Boston 5 years ago (I don't even remember what my handle was back then!). I'm only recently getting back on Chowhound again.
I'm sure the food scene in Boston has continued to improve and evolve over the past 5 years, and I could use your help catching up on what I've missed.
So, in your opinion, what are the 5 don't miss restaurants to open in the Boston area over the past 5 years (2010 onwards)? They could be high-end fine dining, hole-in-the-wall ethnic, or anything in between, but what is new and exciting to you?
I'm looking forward to taking a Boston catch-up course over the next couple of months...
[I'm pretty sure someone will mention Alden & Harlow, been hearing that name a lot, and I had a reservation for tonight, but that doesn't seem to be working out.]
