Best Seasonal Cuisine 2018: White linens and earthy colors combine for a pleasant, farm-centric vibe at chef Jon Amann’s beloved BYOB. The menu is driven by the latest offerings from local farms. For first-time transcendence, opt for the crispy Berkshire pork belly with fennel, orange, pine nuts and white-bean puree.

Best Restaurant for a First Date 2017: First dates are all about impressions. Chef Jonathan Amann excels at artful platings and creative seasonal fare—like Long Island duck breast in balsamic demi-glace, greens with a fire-roasted pepper vinaigrette, and grilled oysters. Wow your date by bringing a favorite spirit for Amani’s signature cocktail mixes.

Best Peek Into The Kitchen 2016: Chef Jon Amann puts on quite the show—without being overtly showy. In the spotlight instead is his classic open kitchen, which comes alive nightly with the low-key theatrics of creating beautiful food.

From 2015: Chef Jonathan Amann’s love affair with cooking started early and was perfected at Johnson & Wales culinary school in Providence, R.I.—and he has recruited the perfect team to bring his delicious, seasonal visions to reality. Local farmers and artisans are part of the mix, too, providing the fresh ingredients so crucial to his delicious fare.

2014 Best Brunch: Executive chef Jonathan Amann’s fresh, seasonal brunch is a great way to start the weekend, covering both the savory (smoked spring-onion soup, braised Berkshire pork belly, rock shrimp omelets) and the sweet (dark-chocolate Belgian waffles) with equal finesse. The duck-fat home fries are downright decadent.
