It's been a good year for the Cunningham Restaurant group. Layton Roberts, Cunningham's all-star roving head chef, has created an incredible menu, with updated favorites like kimchi meatballs and old favorites like their New York Strip served with celery root puree. It's a great spot that splits the difference between experimentation and familiarity, which makes the updates all the more refreshing. The interior is stunning, with an outstanding bar program to accompany the enormous variety of dishes available, from a charcuterie plate to a big ol' slab of beef. Check it out in the old Trowel Arts building next time you're searching for a new place on Mass Ave.
