So happy to see Fugakyu in Brookline/Boston open again after remodeling! We're really missed it! We had mostly maki which was - as always - terrific! Baked salmon, Crazy Maki, and Alaskan maki are favorites and were every bit as good as I remembered. We also tried the Black Widow Maki for the first time. I was a little skeptical of how the sweet potato would blend but it was amazing! Highly recommend - might be a new favorite! More

Italian | Brookline, Boston

The very best hospitality in town, a crazy-fantastic wine and cocktail program, and gorgeous Italian soul food - Grassona's is *the* hidden gem of Boston and you want to be a regular here. The staff hits the just-right balance of playful and knowledgable. I feel pity for the folks walking in the place next door to pay out the nose for a corporate franchise with a hip brand. The charm and heart that Grassona's serves up will never go out of style! More

We met an old friend for dinner when we were in town and had a very nice meal at Bertucci's. Their food is always good and tonight's service was especially attentive. We made reservations through Open Table and when we arrived our table was already set up with place settings, bread and olive oil blend so we could start right in. We'll return when we're in the Longwood area again. More

Discover Brookline

Visitors and longtime residents of the Brookline neighborhood in Boston will find numerous restaurants that take their ingredients from the cold waters of Cape Cod and the Atlantic Ocean. New England clam chowder, steamed lobster, fried shellfish, and fish-and-chips made with local cod are prevalent on many menus. Raw oyster bars are among the more popular hangouts, and upscale establishments take contemporary New England staples and add a modern twist. The Brookline area is not without its historic ambiance, and the elegant decor and atmosphere of eateries provide a sophisticated feel while you experience the locale's innovative cuisine. Dining in Brookline does not have to be limited to seafood and chowder as there are many Italian restaurants, Japanese noodle houses, South American grills and Mexican eating establishments.
