Best New Restaurant
Fox & the Knife is an ode to the aperitivo culture of Modena, its handcrafted pasta and refreshing libations. The South Boston enoteca has become a runaway hit, thanks to the talents of its ever-dazzling chef, Karen Akunowicz.
It’s that time of year: The restaurant and chef semifinalists for the annual James Beard Awards have been announced — and that means it’s time to grab a Resy before the new crowds descend upon the newly minted honorees.
This year’s nominees include a beloved family-owned sushi spot in Harvard Square and a hot newcomer in South Boston. The finalists will be announced on March 25, and then the coveted awards will be handed out on May 4. The local Resy restaurants that made the cut are listed below; for the full national list, visit the Beard Foundation website.
