Giving people what they want
Restaurants are notoriously difficult businesses to start up, with survival rates not unlike those of small countries with larger, hostile neighbors. But some people know how to put them together so they'll stick around awhile.

Review: Stoddard's Fine Food and Ale

Boston's gastropub world has a new champ
Some of the great ones do it by instinct, but William Ashmore, owner of Stoddard's (and Ivy across the street) appears to be someone given to second thoughts, maybe nots, and serial inspirations.

Malt liquor madness

Sipping at the other end of the spectrum
Malt liquor is alternately derided as preying on our nation's poor, as a cheap way for frat boys to get drunk, and as just terrible beer.

A Congolese feast

Beans and rice, with African flair
I met Constance Kabaziga at the checkout at Mittapheap World Market. She was buying frozen cassava root and dried beans, and I really wanted to know what she was going to do them.

Review: El Parque

A Mexican oasis in Portsmouth’s Island Park
Recent talk of favorite eateries turned to places with "a good vibe." That certainly holds true for El Parque, a relative newcomer to Portsmouth’s Island Park neighborhood.

Review: Basho Japanese Brasserie

A tasty fusion of new and traditional Japanese fare
Weirdly situated in the Fenway, this large restaurant from the owners of Back Bay's Douzo conveys an immediate sense of space well apportioned, with the minimalist fascination of the best haiku.

Review: Kelly's Roast Beef

A new Allston outlet captures the flavors, if not the charm, of the original
In a city with hundreds of unreviewed independent restaurants, I generally avoid chains. But the new Kelly's in the former home of Marty's Liquors in Allston felt different.

Beyond the State: What's reopening where

Venue Watch
As we enter Portland's busy season, there are several comings-and-goings (we'll focus on the comings and less on the goings) to keep track of as we plan our summer outings and evenings on the town.

Review: Fresh

Really grows on you
As a latecomer to the growing crop of food-industry exposés, Ana Sofia Joanes's even-handed documentary on the evils of factory farming doesn't live up to its title. Yet despite tilling familiar ground, its argument for sustainable alternatives intrigues.

Playing Thai-alai

Fast-moving small plates engage at Boda
The writer Stephen Metcalf recently suggested that the cult of cultural authenticity has reached a tipping point analogous to our desperate search for oil.

Review: Nico

An average North End destination with a sweet ending
The North End can be touristy, it can be posh, it can be authentically Italian, it can be nostalgically Italian-American, it can be snooty white-sauce Italian, and sometimes it can be charmingly (or not so charmingly) vulgar.

Lee's Place Burgers

A great hamburger stands out against millions of awful ones
Americans eat more than a billion hamburgers each year, most of them at fast-food restaurants. That's a lot of bad, sad burgers.

Savor the flavors of beer

Beer is a chef’s best friend
Beer makes everything better, even food. And not just as an accompaniment to food, but as food .

Review: Celestial Café

Saintly culinary aspirations
I have to admit that if this were the only restaurant available to me in the afterlife, I would be happy beyond my just desserts.

Review: Wu's

Turning up the heat in Westerly
When I heard that Wu’s was the favorite restaurant of a vegetarian acquaintance, I thought we might give it a try.

A new peak

Katahdin relocates, gets even better
Only in a city as small as Portland can a move of a few blocks, like Katahdin’s recent relocation from High Street to Forest Avenue, seem like a significant change of neighborhood.

Bombay Club

A favorite local Indian eatery finds a new home
As we were on our way home from dinner at Bombay Club, Mrs. Nadeau said, "We didn't try any curries — we missed that."

Review: Café Latino

Heaping plates of fine Puerto Rican fare in an easy-to-miss spot
It pays to keep a sharp eye out for good cheap food; I often fail to notice worthy places right under my nose.

Layers of buying local

Going green
When we drink a glass of organic milk, or eat organic pork sausage with our organic scrambled eggs, it’s easy to forget what goes into securing that “organic” label.

Have beer, will travel

Craft beer in a cooler? Can do!
Culture and experience have taught us that beer in a can is of lesser quality. But with several craft brewers' recent foray into the world of canning, it may be time to put this crude stereotype to bed.

Review: Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill

Another victory, what a surprise
The baseball record books show that Gerald Peter Remy, in 10 major-league seasons, hit a total of seven home runs. On my first visit to his Boylston Street bar and grill, I was ready to declare the restaurant home run number eight.

Review: The Boat House

Interesting seafood and inspiring sunsets
Ah, feel that. Maybe this time it’s a spring breeze for real and won’t soon turn into a winter zephyr. Let’s celebrate, go out and grab a nice meal. Where to? Well, one recent answer to the question that didn’t disappoint was the Boat House restaurant in Tiverton.
