Lower Mills Tavern and Lucy’s American Tavern / $$$ These two recently opened Dorchester restaurants attract neighborhood clientele with reasonably priced, locally sourced, surprisingly similar menus: a pinch of Latin, a smidge of Asian, pizza, pasta, salads, American comfort classics, and an oversize burger. Both feature $11 craft cocktails, lengthy beer and wine lists, and congenial waitstaffs. For those of us who eat out multiple times a week, it’s a formula we can embrace.
