$$$$87 A St, Boston
South Boston, primarily known for excellent watering holes, has recently had a restaurant glow-up, and Lenox Sophia is a welcome addition to the growing lineup. This cool, casual spot turns out a French- and Asian-inspired tasting menu four nights a week for under $100, featuring things like tagliatelle with black truffles and buttermilk fried qual with nori wasabi seasoning. The meal feels super high-end (but the price is relatively modest) and you can choose between omnivore and vegetarian. This spot is tiny and almost always packed, so make a reservation and stop by Social Wines on the corner for a bottle before heading over, as this is one of the few BYOB restaurants in Boston.
