"We strive to welcome travelers, as well as locals, to have a comfortable and enjoyable dining experience at both the fine dining Perfect Wife Restaurant and at The Other Woman Tavern. We also offer live music and a lively bar scene for those who like to dance and socialize," said Chef/Owner Amy Chamberlain.
"Every one of the 300-plus places we highlight contains an untold story about someone striving for perfection, having a dream, and having the vision to make a difference, whether it's a small artisan's studio or a lobster-in-the-rough shack or dressed-up steakhouse on a tree-lined Boston street," said Yankee's editor Mel Allen. "While it may be hard to create a business, the true challenge is in making it work, being good enough that it endures and brings people back. Those are the qualities we look for and reward when we say 'Best of New England.
