Update/News: New Restaurant Coming to Lower Mills

The Dorchester Reporter has reported that two brothers originally from Ireland have purchased Donovan's Village Tavern and Restaurant and are going to convert it into "The Ledge" restaurant and bar, which will serve "standard American food, such as burgers, fish and chips and chicken, for a lunch and dinner crowd". The brothers are planning a major renovation of the establishment. Currently there are two separate entrances and rooms, one for the bar and one for the restaurant. The renovations will include making the restaurant and bar one room with one entrance, creating an outdoor patio with a seasonal bar, and bringing in a new chef. Stay tuned for updates on this...

Anh Hổng Vietnamese Restaurant

We knew of the wonders of Anh Hổng before we even moved to Dorchester. This place has perhaps the best Vietnamese food in the city (don't insult us by saying Pho Pasteur is the best around - try this place and you will never eat there again). Although the decor is not hip or trendy, it certainly is authentic and the prices are incredibly reasonable. On a cold winter day nothing beats a hot giant bowl of their phở. If it is hot out, then the Vietnamese spring rolls are a must. They are light, fresh, and served with a great peanut sauce. If you want fine dining try the bò 7 món (seven meals of beef), but just be prepared to fast for a few days before you go because this is more beef than any human should eat.

291 Adams Street, Dorchester
Located on Adams Street at the corner of Park Street. Just east of the Fields Corner T stop.
