AOL CityGuide—Boston says
Just as Audubon shot birds to immortalize them in paintings, a reviewer publicizing a place such as Channel Café risks killing part of what makes it extraordinary. This Fort Point enclave is that rarest of rara avises in Boston’s dining scene: an undiscovered restaurant of great quality. … This easygoing establishment has an atmosphere that can’t be faked—one that arises from the combination of creativity, charisma, eclecticism and good taste.
This café on the ground floor of a refurbished 19th-century warehouse serves three meals daily, bringing Fort Point neighborhood residents and artists together in an inviting, unpretentiously hip space. 300 Summer Street, South Boston, 617.426.0695.
