With a heavy Mediterranean influence, the Portuguese are known for incorporating fresh seafood, heavy starches and numerous herbs and spices into their cooking. Luckily for Boston residents and visitors, a caldo verde or bacalhau a bras is never more than a 15-minute drive. We take a look at some of the best Portuguese establishments the city has to offer.

The Neighborhood

Restaurant, American, Portuguese

Portuguese owned and operated, The Neighborhood is one part American diner and one part Portuguese restaurant. The portions are massive, the prices are dirt cheap and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. It is best to get a table on the outdoor patio — but be prepared to wait in line.

Adega Restaurant

Restaurant, Portuguese, $$$

Diners come here for the authentic food and atmosphere, great wine selection and rotating special menu items. The vibe here is on the quieter side, making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to impress a date.
