East Coast Grill is named as the best barbecue in Boston in Zagat's new America's Top Restaurants survey. Now, East Coast Grill is the best in Boston for a lot of things: we'd wager nothing beats it for spicy foods, margaritas, or maybe even a raw bar. But barbecue? We guess M&M; Ribs doesn't have a Zagat listing!
Zagat's other Boston picks were snoozers: Galleria Umberto for pizza, Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage for burgers, Framingham's Sichuan Gourmet for Chinese, The Similans and Brown Sugar Cafe for Thai, and O Ya for Japanese.
What do you think? Did Zagat get it right?
