15 Boston restaurant dishes to give thanks for

This year, Boston restaurants had burger fever, with just about every place in town offering a version of the sandwich. Japanese ramen noodles began to take hold, appearing at pop-up restaurants and on late-night menus. The cocktail craze continued, but new wine bars also appeared on the scene. The Oak Room reinvented itself, while Locke-Ober closed. Kendall Square blossomed, and the already burgeoning South Boston waterfront prepared to explode. The constant amid changes and passing trends? Some really good food. With Thanksgiving upon us, it’s time to reflect on the larger things for which we are grateful. The smaller pleasures are worth remembering, too. Here are 15 dishes I was thankful for this year.
