About South End
South End, Boston is an area rich in diversity, whether in dining or nightlife, arts or recreation. South End is minutes from downtown Boston and the Back Bay. It is known as one of Boston's best restaurant districts and offers a great multitude of cuisines from which to choose, including Ethiopian, French, Italian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Japanese, Thai, and Indian. Tremont Street is known as 'Restaurant Row' because of its excellent variety. For the more adventurous or curious, there is an excellent Ethiopian restaurant called Addis Red Sea, where Ethiopian culture is truly represented. If your palate is craving Italian, there is Emilio's or Teatro's, which has a reputation for its risotto. Hammersley's is renowned for its roast chicken and has an upscale bar, also. Picco's is mainly an ice cream and pizza place. For French dining experiences, seek out The Butcher Shop, which is actually a combo wine bar and French/Italian Bistro, or Aquitaine, a pricier but more elegant bistro. This is only a small selection of what is on Tremont, never mind other streets of South End! There is a large number of bars of different styles. Pho Republique is a unique Vietnamese bar, The Eagle is an edgy gay bar, and Sibling Rivalry (restaurant and bar) is more sophisticated. Besides the dining/nightlife choices, there are also opportunities to enjoy the arts at Calderwood Pavilion, Boston Center for the Arts, and numerous art galleries. Plenty of shopping is also available, with both smaller local stores, as well as more high-end retailers. Over 30 parks in South End alone offer a great chance to enjoy outdoor recreation. Whatever you wish to do, or to eat, there is an abundance of adventures waiting in South End, Boston!
