Editors’ Choice 

Sichuan Garden at the Baldwin, Woburn 

Standout Qualities: Perfectly prepared and fresh take on the complex spices and flavors of Sichuan cuisine, served in a Colonial Revival mansion. 

What’s Unique: Star bartender Ran Duan is in charge of the cocktails, so the mai tai list alone is worth the trip.

Insider tip: While the “American comfort” dishes, like General Tso Chicken, are terrific, the “authentic” side of the menu shines with dishes like the Chengdu Chicken Wings and Braised Pork Belly with Chestnuts.

2 Alfred St., Woburn, 781-935-8488,


Readers’ Choice 

Su Chang’s, Peabody  

Philosophy: Stay true to their Cantonese roots, with a focus on seafood and delicate sauces.
