High 5: Comfort Food

Enjoy stick-to-your-ribs favorites at these classic Boston eateries


Clam Chowder at Legal Sea Foods (pictured): Perhaps the quintessential New England comfort food, creamy, crustacean-packed clam chowder—especially the acclaimed iteration served at the restaurants of this local dining empire—is the ultimate warmer on a blustery fall day.

Philly cheese steak spring rolls at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse: This innovative mash-up of an American favorite wrapped in Asian-inspired pastry has become a staple at this elegant Back Bay oasis.

Pizza at Regina Pizzeria: Vegetarians, meat eaters, Democrats, Republicans: Pizza makes everyone happy. Sup on some of the best around at the cozy North End original or one of its satellite locations.

Shepherd’s Pie at The Kinsale: The Irish repertoire at this Downtown watering hole is chock full of heart-warming dishes (beef and Guinness stew, anyone?), yet its version of the hearty Hibernian feast-in-a-dish has it all: slow-cooked lamb, green peas, corn and pearl onions, all topped with savory, delicious gravy and mashed potato.  

Fried Clams at Ye Olde Union Oyster House: The nation’s oldest restaurant has mastered a few dishes in its nearly two centuries of existence, and the tender and sweet clams—a beloved regional treat fried to perfection—certainly fall into this category.
