If the city of Boston were challenged to a cook-off with the fate of the entire planet on the line (which, frankly, would be a good way to go out), then all we’d have to do to assemble our line-up of humanity-saving chefs is go to Time Out Market in the Fenway. This place has food stalls connected to a ton of the very best restaurants in the city: O Ya, Bisq, and The Tasting Counter, just to name a few. It also has a big outdoor space with corn hole and bocce, and two full bars, so you can carry your drinks around while you eat. For all of those reasons, it’s one of the coolest places in the city if you’re at all interested in food. Be warned, though: it’s also very pricey, it’s oriented towards tourists, and some of the stalls merely sell shrunken, fast-food versions of dishes that you’re much better off getting at the actual restaurants. We recommend the nori tacos at Gogo Ya and the big, meaty sandwiches at Bisq.
