Boston, MA

Named for a small French village on the Italian border, Menton is Boston's grand destination for haute rustic French-Italian cuisine. Chef/restaurateur Barbara Lynch is no stranger to accolades, and her restaurant No. 9 Park was on our Top 40 Restaurants in the U.S. in 2010. Last year, Menton leaped into our Top 10 New Restaurants in the U.S., and we welcome its debut to this year's Top 40. The self-taught chef is also a sophisticated artisan cocktail aficionado, and her bar Drink is dedicated to the craft of the elevated tipple.
