The end-of-year lists keep coming, this time from The Boston Globe. On Monday morning, Globe food writer and restaurant critic Devra First released her picks for the Boston area restaurants and bars that made an impact this year, in categories that ranged from Restaurant of the Year and Best Trend to Most Intellectually Stimulating.

And her DNA is visible in some of the city’s most-exciting restaurants, from Bar Mezzana to Chickadee to Haley Henry and Nathalie, where the majority of staff members have at some point called her boss. It is, perhaps, no coincidence that two of Boston’s greatest culinary loves … [Read more...] about Barbara Lynch has influenced Boston dining for 20 years.
