The December Hit List: Wink & Nod, Mahaniyom, Bab Al-Yemen, and More


Boston dining is closing 2022 on a high note. First, we have the long-awaited, if unexpected, return of Wink & Nod with a brand-new pop-up kitchen from renowned local chef Louis DiBiccari. This month also sees a new Roman trattoria set up shop in JP in the form of Tonino, and the emergence of Boston’s first Yemeni restaurant, Bab Al-Yemen.

Elsewhere, Faccia a Faccia feels fit to launch its lunch and brunch service, and both Mahaniyom and La Royal are riding high after coming to local and national acclaim. It’s your last Resy Hit List of the year: use it wisely.
