The Emory is an American place at the top of Beacon Hill, next to the State House. It’s one of the best options for dinner in the area, thanks to a menu that has a lot of familiar stuff done with interesting twists, like tagliatelle served with chicken skin and a burger that’s topped with fondue. When the weather is nice, you can sit on a patio on a part of Beacon Street that doesn’t get too much traffic, and the inside is fun, too, thanks to a big bar.
