EXPECTATIONS ARE FUNNYTHINGS.
Conventional
wisdom has it that people and places rise to the levelof expectations set before them, but as we scoured thelandscape for the Best of Boston this year, our experi-ence was the opposite. We found that we were forcedto set our expectations higher, because the city hadrisen past them. 11 As always, we went looking
for
thebest of everything, anonymously and at the magazine'sexpense. For 10 months we tested, watched, and ateour ways through town.

Soon enough, we noticedchanges in the city: It has gotten better. A lot better.Longstanding institutions that once lived off theirreputations have revitalized, and new ones have flour-
ished.
Even restaurant and retail service, long Boston'ssoft spot, has improved. And those high standardsare spreading: There
are
mare
impressive enterprisesin the suburbs than ever. So we returned there, butalso went
further—to
judge, for the first time, thefinest of the Cape and islands.

We've made otherchanges,
tou,
adding sections on the best spots for dat-
ing,
repairs, even where to find the best outfits, so thatwhile you enjoy the best the city has to offer, you canlook your best.
