Boston native and chef Barbara Lynch has opened a series of top Boston restaurants, including her ultra-luxe No. 9 Park on Beacon Hill, but the Butcher Shop offers you a chance to sample her high standards for a more moderate price. The small storefront down the street from the Boston Center for the Arts includes a small bar and a few tables, as well as a full-service butcher shop that preps all sorts of high-end meats. There’s a house hotdog and a steak tartare with toasted brioche, but our favorite meal is the charcuterie plate, best enjoyed alongside the restaurant's excellent wine service, of course. If you’ve got a yen for surf and turf, Lynch’s B&G Oysters is across the street.
