For my money, this is the best lunch restaurant in Boston. It’s better known for its dinner scene, but noise and an interminable wait don’t make a great experience. Delectable Barcelona-style tapas at your own pace, preferably at a table on the surprisingly pleasant sidewalk? That’s more like it. Start with the house special grilled corn, making sure everyone gets a piece. Mix up hot and cold, meat and seafood, vegetables and more vegetables. The friendly waitstaff can help you decide whether to order more. Just make sure to try the lunch-only milanesa bocadillo—a chicken cutlet sandwich that’s worth the trip all by itself.
1704 Washington St (near E. Springfield St.). Valet parking available at dinner Thurs–Sat.
