Bella Luna, a Vibrant Neighborhood Restaurant in Jamaica Plain (Boston, MA)

I don't go to Jamaica Plain much, but I should, as JP actually has some great places to eat. Bella Luna and The Milky Way is one of those places. It's a neighborhood restaurant that's popular with a diverse set of locals. It serves great food and solid drinks, it has live music, and its connection to the community is apparent.

For starters, I know this jicama salad with avocado doesn't look like much, but I really loved this seasonal item and hope they bring it back! It was very refreshing.

The seared scallops with grapefruit were also very nicely cooked, honestly better than what I had expecting from a casual neighborhood restaurant!

We also shared a Green Goddess pizza with eggplant, pesto, swiss chard, and goat cheese - another hit with the table.

I love Bella Luna's connection to the community. They even use plates that have been decorated by local kids (with food-safe coloring of course). Aren't they adorable?

The cocktails at Bella Luna are also pretty solid.

Our server recommended the S'mores Bar a la Mode for dessert. It was an indulgent treat, to be sure, but it's ok if you share, right?

If you live or happen to be in Jamaica Plain, I would definitely keep Bella Luna in mind. It's a pretty casual and fun spot (sometimes with live music) that serves great food with fresh ingredients. It's the perfect neighborhood restaurant to have!
