When the drinks menu is almost double the size of the culinary offerings, guess what: you're in a bar that serves food. Duh, me. But I'm glad I dropped by this comfy, funky JP hangout. I had some amazing gambas (shrimp with head on) in...More

This place is so yummy! It’s so pricy though. I wish I could afford to come here more than once a year, but I literally cannot (not the restaurants fault, just my cheapness). Their paella is one of the best I’ve ever had and all...More

Six of us went to dinner and had a great meal. When you order tapas you have lots of choices, and we tried a lot of them. It was fun trying all the variety The place is small, loud and very enjoyable.

This is a great neighborhood eatery and gathering place. The book selection is outstanding. What a joy to discuss books with the staff--he obviously reads broadly. Not all bookstores are staffed so well. I didn't look through the records. As others mention, the food is...More

We had a lovely dinner here. The Serrano ham was yummy and the tortilla with potatoes and egg was excellent. The lamb burgers are the reason to dine here. The Brussels sprouts were undercooked and too spicy. The beet salad was exceptional. The pumpkin mousse...More

This spot is one of my go-tos in Jamaica Plain, especially when I have friends or family visiting town. It's very cozy (which can sometimes mean watching your elbows) and it makes for a lovely ambiance. The food is some of the best I've had...More

A good tapas restaurant in the heart of JP. The food at Tres Gatos is very nice, served by very friendly staff. Good wine list. The restaurant draws a high-energy, fun-loving crowd, so it's a fun night out. On a pleasant evening I might recommend...More

Jamaica Plain
This Boston neighborhood feels like a distinct
community unique and separate from the bustle of other
areas. Beautiful Victorian homes, restaurants with an
emphasis on being eco-friendly and providing local and
organic food, and a large Hispanic community. Visit
Centre and South streets for restaurants, cafes, and
little shops. The Arnold Arboretum is a beautiful,
large green space well worth a visit if you venture to
