Bar Kismet, the intimate north end restaurant with exceptional and creative seafood dishes, has won gold for Best Fine Dining. Bar Kismet’s co-owner, Jenner Cormier, says all credit for the fine dining win goes to the Kismet team. “It’s all because of the staff, the credit belongs to them,” he says. For restaurants like Bar Kismet, the pandemic has presented a “nightmare” at times. “It seems like every week, every month, there are a new set of challenges,” Cormier says. “But I think the best part has been seeing the staff smile, and seeing some of our guests come back in through our doors was pretty heartwarming after being closed for so long.”
