What is a good restaurant in Boston's Back Bay?

Cottonwood Cafe

This restaurant claims to be based on the "American Southwest. Founded on Indian Legend. Cultivated through Spanish tradition. Captured by the American Frontier..." But most would probably refer to it as upscale Southwestern food with a twist. The appetizer quesadilla is filled with crabmeat and brie cheese and the snakebites are fried jalapenos stuffed with shrimp and jack cheese. The Cottonwood Cafe is much more up-class than the standard Southwestern restaurant so you won't find an entree menu filled with tacos and burritos. But you will find dishes such as Seafood Paella, Enchiladas Verdes, and Rocky Mountain Lamb Chops. For dessert, be sure to indulge in the chocolate nachos- white and dark chocolate mousses served with chocolate-dipped butter cookies. Dinner entrees range from about $13-$19 The Cottonwood Cafe is located at 22 Berkeley St. in Boston's Back Bay.
