Hit List

Get ready to reserve a table at Cultivar, out chef Mary Dumont's first venture as an owner. Dumont, once deemed "Best New Chef" by "Food & Wine," most recently earned raves for her farm-to-table New American cuisine at Harvard Square's elegant Harvest. Cultivar, slated to open this fall inside the Financial District's in-renovation Ames Boston Hotel, built in 1893 as Boston's first skyscraper, will feature what Dumont calls "modern American garden cuisine" using many ingredients grown on site. Expect an "organic"-feeling space that includes a spacious outdoor patio.
