Ken Oringer’s flagship restaurant Clio serves contemporary French-American cuisine that brings us back every time we visit Beantown. During our latest tasting, we were bowled over with new Chef David Rodrigues and his modern, yet approachable cuisine (floral, sweet, and spiced notes all make appearances). And Mixologist Todd Maul put the Clio bar on the map, and we never say no to one of his tipples, a guaranteed spot-on spin on tried and true classics. And you never know when Maul will pull out the power drills to take infusion to the extreme.
