Chef-owner Matt Jennings sticks to his roots and serves up New England brasserie-inspired fare at Townsman, the big-but-charming restaurant next to the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Chinatown. The space is considerable—75 seats in the dining room alone—but the décor and service help retain a homey, intimate feel. Bright red Windsor chairs and walnut dining tables are beautiful in their simplicity, and the open kitchen is a welcome piece of set dressing as you enjoy your meal. (If watching the chefs work is really your thing, ask for front row seats at the crudo bar.)

For those just drinking, have a cocktail in one of the lounge’s leather seats or head to the bar and pick from a well-curated (and reasonably priced) wine list that focuses on France, with a smattering of Spanish, Austrian, and German selections. There’s no shortage of options here—in the summertime, Townsman’s already-vast interior opens out onto a patio for additional alfresco dining.
