The June Hit List: The Emory, backbar, Para Maria, and More


With all COVID-related restrictions suddenly in the rear view, it’s arguably the best time to eat out in Boston in well over a year. And the city has provided no shortage of fine options: backbar, The Emory, and Time Out Market have finally returned from hibernation; the restaurant and cocktail bar formerly known as Brass Union is now boozy red sauce-joint Vera’s; and we’ve received a duo of ritzy new hotel-attached bars in the form of Trifecta and Street Bar.

So, book a table, raise a glass, and dig in: there’s plenty worth celebrating in this month’s Hit List.
