Oh, Boston. We haven’t forgotten about you! We’ve started this new series called Fluent City Guides to make your winter better. Even if you’re stuck in the day-to-day grind, here’s a little inspiration to get out of the house and #getfluent in your home city. The last few weeks, we named a few of our favorite restaurants in New York and Washington, DC.

Here, we focus on our favorite gems in the city on the hill—one to pair with each of the languages that we teach in Boston.

If you’re deep-diving into Spanish…


While the beloved Toro tends to steal the spotlight, our go-to Spanish favorite in Boston is Estragon. This tapas hotspot serves up some of the best eats in the city with Spanish classics like paella, croquetas, and pintxos, which is the Northern Spanish word for bar snacks. They are proud to be one of the only Spanish restaurants in Boston with a native Spanish chef—and the food definitely tastes like it.

Neighborhood: South End

What to order: Garbanzos Fritos (Crispy Fried Chickpeas), any of the Pintxos, and the Paella Mixta.

If you’re getting fluent in French…

Petit Robert Bistro

A Parisian-style bistro with authentic French staples with a bit of an Italian influence. Chef Stefano Quaresima ties his experiences in both countries together to create a whole lot of deliciousness. The menu changes every three months to fit with seasonality and local availability of ingredients, but many of the classics are year-round.

Neighborhood: South End

What to order: Coq au Vin, Escargot, and Steak Frites. Finish with the Creme Brûlée!

If you’re enamored with Italian…

Giacomo’s Restaurant

Red sauce heaven right here. Though you may have to wait in line, it’s well worth it. Enjoy big portions of down-to-earth Italian classics in a warm and inviting ambience. Just come prepared with some dollars (it’s cash only) and a big appetite.

Neighborhood: North End

What to order: Start with the Burrata. You can’t go wrong with the Butternut Squash Ravioli or any of their other homemade pasta.
