Tupelo

While a few southern-style options have popped up all over the Boston area, Tupelo nails the home-cooked feel more than any restaurant maybe ever. The cozy dining space, tucked away in unassuming Inman Square, offers a modest bar, dark woods and low lighting—the perfect atmosphere for the Thursday night "Date Night" menu made to share ($25 for two). The tattooed staff serves specialty cocktails in mason jars and locally brewed beers, and locals swear by hangover-curing properties of the biscuits and gravy ($9).

I have such a soft spot for Tupelo. Every time I'm in Cambridge, I make it a point to stop here. While I love their brunch (hello, chicken and waffles), their dinner here is outstanding, both the food and the atmosphere. Start off with a mulled cider (on a snowy night, it's the perfect cocktail), then go from there: fried chicken, gumbo, fried catfish - everything is good. I always split a side of jalapeno mac and cheese with my dinner companion, and, of course, pie with a scoop of ice cream from Toscanini's.
