GQ's Picks for 2014's Best New Restaurants in America Includes Row 34 in Boston

A well-known food writer for GQ magazine has come out with his picks for top new restaurants in the country, and a Boston dining spot has made the list.

Alan Richman's article on 2014's 25 best new restaurants in America includes Row 34, an oyster bar in the Fort Point section of the city that opened last November. In the post, Richman mentions that "I liked the warm lobster roll, the potted smoked trout, and especially the mashed potatoes with sour cream....But I kept going back for the same thing, the oysters," with a particular liking of "the sweet and nutty variety named Row 34." The article also gives a nod to the array of beers on tap and the farm-to-table, or "tap-to-table" feel of the Congress Street eatery.

One other New England restaurant made Richman's list of top new restaurants--Le Penguin, a French bistro in Greenwich, CT.
