The November issue of Boston Magazine has compiled a list of the Top 50 Restaurants in Greater Boston, including this wildly popular one in Upham’s Corner.
The accolades continue for Comfort Kitchen, making #5 on the list! See below!
Taste is subjective, but there are universal truths that help define “comfort food”—namely, congenial cuisine that fills both belly and soul. And night after night, Comfort Kitchen—a hotly anticipated arrival to Dorchester after years of planning and pop-ups from chef Kwasi Kwaa and his team—churns out exactly that, highlighting fundamental global ingredients like rice, okra, and rum (shout-out to beverage director Kyisha Davenport’s illuminating cocktail program). We’re big fans of the jerk-roasted duck leg with pikliz, a Haitian-style pickled vegetable relish, and the meltingly tender yassa chicken, a Senegalese-style stew, but really, every dish on the menu makes us feel right at home.
Comfort Kitchen opened its doors in January, transforming an old historic comfort station on Columbia Road into a chic new restaurant serving comfort food from around the world. Comfort Kitchen is a cafe by day and a restaurant by night with a full bar, celebrating the flavors and ingredients of the African diaspora — global comfort food — connected from Asia to the Americas. It is a Black-owned, immigrant-owned, and woman-owned business!
Comfort Kitchen was also named Best New Restaurant in the Boston Magazine 2023 Best of Boston awards! And also made the New York Times Best Restaurant List!
