For more than 15 years, Chef Barbara Lynch’s flagship restaurant has been a Boston institution. By Lynch’s side since the beginning, Cat Silirie—the wine director for all of Lynch’s restaurants—continues to maintain some of the city’s best wine lists. From day one, Silirie has championed little-known wines and mentored some of Boston’s brightest talent–and she remains one of the most influential wine personalities in Boston. No. 9 Park still maintains the most robust and impressive list in the Lynch-Silirie brood, offering everything from back vintage Barolo to orange wine. The cocktail program, run by Ryan Lotz, has turned the restaurant’s pocket square of a bar into a destination unto itself, so if you don’t want to opt for the full tasting menu, belly up to the bar where a separate and very affordable a la carte menu is available.
