With a lush, shaded front patio filled with climbing flowers, and a softly-lit wood-ceilinged dining room with watercolors on the walls, 224 Boston may be the most pleasant restaurant in Dorchester. The menu changes with the seasons but generally consists of New American stuff like pan-seared scallops, braised short ribs, and roasted salmon. It’s also nice to come for brunch when they serve a lot of breakfast cocktails.
