If Maine lobster were a movie star, who would it be? “Meryl Streep.”
–Superchef Barbara Lynch
Barbara Lynch, 47, the multiple James Beard Award-winner Boston Magazine has called the “erudite bad girl,” loves to dazzle her diners with ingredients from Maine at her constellation of eight trendy eateries, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, Stir, Menton, and Sportello. One of Food & Wine’s Ten Best New Chefs, she’s acutely focused, charmingly high energy, and always has something edgy cooking–that is, she’d make the perfect good Maine girl if she weren’t from South Boston and a world celebrity.
