Congratulations to Towne, Tico, and Legal Harborside for making it into Esquire's 2011 Best New Restaurants list which hits news stands tomorrow.

Last [week] at Boulud Sud by Daniel Boulud in New York City, Boston’s Towne Stove and Spirits and Legal Harborside were honored as “Best New Restaurants” by Esquire Magazine and correspondent John Mariani. In the house to accept the awards was Towne’s owner Patrick Lyons and Culinary Director Lydia Shire, and Legal Harborside’s Roger Berkowitz.

This is the second Esquire “Best New Restaurant” award that the Patrick Lyons and Lydia Shire duo have won in the past three years, (Scampo in Boston was honored in 2008). Berkowitz’s flagship location, Legal Harborside, is now Boston’s largest restaurant and features three floors with three different concepts directly on Boston’s waterfront.

Legal Harborside – The rescue of the Boston waterfront from decrepitude now has an anchor: the three-story Legal Harborside at Liberty Wharf. The first level is simply a swankier version of the other 31 Legal Sea Foods houses – fish and chips, that kind of thing – but the elegant second floor is something way up the food chain.

Tico – In a big room of mismatched tables and a bar stocked with 124 different tequilas, chef Michael Schlow offers plates meant to be shared, which you will have a tough time doing when the sweet corn with bacon, chiles and basil arrives.

Towne Stove and Spirits – Two of the most important ingredients in any great restaurant are a passion for the project and attention to detail. Lifelong Bostonian Lydia Shire, chef at Towne, has plenty of both. Here are a few things she loves about her new place: the grand staircase, the bars (all three of them), the plates, and the lobster popover.

I think I know where I'm having dinner the rest of the week......
