Spring Sake, Global Flavor

Award Winner

Tim Cushman

O Ya, Boston

For a tiny restaurant, O Ya pulls in big praise. It topped Frank Bruni’s list of America’s best new restaurants in 2008, while chef Tim Cushman received our Best Chef: Northeast award last year. This husband-and-wife team is returning to the Beard House with a menu that pairs global flavors with boutique sakes.
