The best of what’s trend­ing in restau­rants and gear.

Dis­cover great con­tent­ment at BLR by Shojo in Chi­na­town

Where Boston - - CONTENTS -

THROUGH THE NEON STEAM swirling from the sewer caps, past the clicks and mur­murs of men hud­dled about Chi­nese chess boards, a short flight of stairs de­scends and dis­ap­pears through an unas­sum­ing door on Hud­son Street. BLR (Best Lit­tle Restau­rant, from the same team be­hind Shojo and Ruckus), has the feel of a high class, al­beit covert, gam­bling den turned gourmet restau­rant: hang­ing Chi­nese pa­per lamps shine light off of the gold painted brick walls, then a tray of sim­mer­ing Ox­tail Chow Fun emerges from the kitchen along­side a cock­tail in a color you’ve never seen be­fore. Noth­ing on BLR’s menu will dis­ap­point, but the gin­ger-scal­lion shrimp will change your life for the bet­ter, and their in­fused liquor cock­tails are un­like any­thing else in Bos­ton. 13A Hud­son St., 617.338.4988
