Best New Restaurant: Counter Culture

Counter Culture

Talk about bad luck. Chef Jeannie Pierola opens the most exciting new restaurant in town and CL’s rave review cover story appears on the same day that COVID-19 pulls the rug out from under the economy. Six months later, Counter Culture is still providing stunning food, from tuna tartare to porchetta wood-roasted on the “steampunk” grill. Luckily, the take-out menu is extensive and there’s lots of room for social distance ‘til it’s safe to resume counter service. —Jon Palmer Claridge
