1 Massachusetts Restaurant Makes Yelp’s Top 100 Of 2024
With the start of a new year, we see a nice mix of shout-outs in January. This includes “best of” features from the previous year, and then other what we have to look forward to this year. Yelp recently published the top 100 restaurants of 2024 and just one Massachusetts establishment made the top 20.
Coming in at number 90, Boston was recognized for its pizza, of all things. In fact, Union Park Pizza on Newbury Street is only about five years old.
To compile this list, Yelp stuck with its community engagement strategy. “This year, our huge, food-loving community reviewed and rated their faves from coast to coast, so you can find lots of new restaurants to love, whether you’re at home or on the road,” they explained.
This final compilation is vast and, as you can imagine, covers just about every food group. Specifically, Yelp calls out how popular noodles seem to be in addition to Latin cuisine.
Here is what you need to know about Union Park Pizza
The husband and wife team behind this restaurant took a leap of faith upon seeing the space available for lease. They describe themselves as having “a passion for pizza and local and organic food.” Therefore, much consideration is put into the ingredients used to make their delicious pizza.
Yelp says, “The dough and sauce at this Back Bay pizzeria are made in-house daily—using organic flour, tomatoes, and wine imported from Italy, plus locally sourced herbs and vegetables.”
The pizza menu at Union Park includes 17 different options. “Our homemade dough is topped with garlic-infused oil, aged mozzarella, aged parmesan & fresh herbs,” they explain. Though it is certainly hard to pass that up, Union Park also has seven smaller plates on the menu, in addition to three salads.
Though Massachusetts just had one place recognized by Yelp restaurants, they were not alone in the New England region. Vermont and Maine each had a restaurant featured as well.
