Ms. Clucks Deluxe Chicken & Dumplings
James Beard Award-winning chef Tim Cushman and advanced sake professional Nancy Cushman—the culinary power couple behind o ya and Hojoko—bring you this colorfully-named eatery, which specializes in delicious twists on chicken and dumplings. Only at Time Out Market Boston, Ms. Clucks offers numerous tantalizing choices when it comes to chicken. Options range from karaage chicken and waffle fries with miso-maple syrup, umami salt and yuzu kosho aioli to a Vietnamese grilled chicken salad made with lemongrass-marinated chicken, local greens and nuoc cham vinaigrette. For a crispy, cheesy blast of edible fun, try a chicken, broccoli and cheddar gyoza that features a frico crust and comes with spicy miso dipping sauce.
In a town with no shortage of fish-focused eateries, Kathy Sidell's Saltie Girl—a Back Bay stalwart—manages to stand out. At Time Out Market Boston, chef Kyle McClelland satisfies locals and visitors alike with lobster rolls—served warm with butter sauce or cold with house mayo—and cups of rich, pork belly-kissed clam chowder. Looking for a quick foodie bite on the go? Try the octopus empanadas or uni arancini. The Saltie team constantly meets with local fishermen and purveyors to ensure they are offering the freshest seafood available, which explains why their fish and chips rank among the best in town.
As the creative genius behind Somerville's ticketed destination restaurant Tasting Counter, Chef Peter Ungár brings his thoughtfully-prepared cuisine across the river to Time Out Market Boston. Ungár's “0% carbon, 50% local, 100% natural” ethos is applied to meticulously handcrafted dishes such as pork belly ssäm, duck leg confit, and shrimp risotto. Nearly everything is made in house—butter, breads, preserves, ferments and condiments—leaving diners asking: When was the last time you had fine dining fare in a communal environment?
