Boston's Most Important Restaurant Openings of 2017

December 17, 2017

Buttermilk & Bourbon


From his crop of bright blue hair to his knack for getting in front of TV cameras on Today and Bar Rescue, Hell's Kitchen runner-up Jason Santos has built quite a brand. But we were finding ourselves hungry for a restaurant with a strong personality to match his own. Santos' New American joint Abby Lane hums along well in the Theater District, but the Financial District's Blue Inc. was short-lived, and we never really felt his heart in Back Bay Harry's. Then, in February, he delivered Buttermilk & Bourbon — and it's pure "Santos" in spades: The New Orleans–inspired cuisine is a bit kooky, the space (especially its blacklight-illuminated "Voodoo Lounge") slightly over-the-top, and the vibe has a freewheeling charm. In November, he flipped Back Bay Harry's into the funky Mexican restaurant Citrus & Salt, and the result is similarly rejuvenating. Santos recently told us this is the happiest he's felt as a chef, and we can taste the difference. 

 

Must-order: The buttermilk fried chicken is served with three different sauces: Nashville hot, sweet and spicy and our favorite, white BBQ, a mayo-based iteration particularly popular in Alabama.
