Kumamoto sashimi at O Ya

1. Committee

You don’t need a ticket to Greece to experience its exquisite culture and cuisine. Just head to Committee in the Seaport, where authenticity takes a front seat to every diner’s experience. Inspired by ouzeri—traditional tavernlike restaurants in Greece—Committee offers shareable dishes like branzino and paidakia that can be paired beautifully with a Greek wine or a culturally inspired cocktail. 50 Northern Ave., 617.737.5051, $$$

2. Little Donkey

Ditch your traditional three-course meal for a cultural spread of tapas at this renowned gem in Central Square. Inspired by chefs Ken Oringer’s and Jamie Bissonnette’s global travels, each menu item is ever-changing and always exciting. 505 Mass Ave., Cambridge, 617.945.1008, $$

3. No Relation

Featuring the most exclusive omaske experience you’ll find in the city, this restaurant features a nine-seat service with only two dinners each night, scheduled at 6:30 and 8PM. Diners lucky enough to score a seat will enjoy watching chef Colin Lynch prepare a 14-course meal in front of them and can choose to get a beverage pairing with the meal. 11 William E. Mullins Way, 617.530.1772, $$$$

4. O Ya

Find traditional Japanese flavors with a contemporary twist at this Leather District hot spot. Since opening its doors in 2007, O Ya has continued to dazzle guests with taste and presentation, where every dish—from the foie gras to the bluefin and Maine uni toast—is an actual work of art. Their legendary Grand Omakase experience invites guests to try a 20-course sample of the best dishes the team has to offer. 9 East St., 617.654.9900, $$$$
