If you ever want to feel like a model doing a photoshoot for a high-end furniture catalog while you’re eating, the Black Lamb in the South End is a good place to go. This is a perfectly competent brasserie in the South End with nothing on the menu that’s bad, but nothing that’s particularly outstanding, either. It’s a good option if you’re looking for highly seasonal stuff, as in the summer, you can expect to see a menu filled with heirloom tomatoes, corn, and stone fruits. And it has a little oyster bar next to the dining room that’s a fun spot for a few drinks and small plates.

Field and Vine
Field and Vine is a very good American restaurant in Union Square where you kind of get the idea that the owners spend a lot of time at farms.
The tasting counter is a pricy but excellent tasting menu place inside Aeronaut Brewery in Somerville.

No Relation is a secret sushi counter inside of a South End tiki bar that’s also kind of a secret.
