The January Hit List: Chickadee, Saltie Girl, Nightshade Noodle Bar, and More


Now that the dust from the holiday season and New Year’s has settled, it’s time to welcome 2022 by revisiting what some of our favorite openings from 2021 — and before — are up to. Geppetto is keeping us toasty with roasted lamb shanks, Chickadee is slow-roasting porchetta, and Saltie Girl is stewing cioppino worthy of the name. On the newsy front, we’ve got a fresh brunch from Grand Tour, a Nashville-themed newcomer in the Theater District, and Guy Fieri’s newest venture beside the Boston Common.

Let’s start 2022 on the right foot. Here’s our Hit List for the year.
