Lynch worked her way up in the kitchens of Boston-area restaurants, including working for Todd English. In 1998 she opened No.9 Park, a fine restaurant often frequented by politicians because of its proximity to the Massachusetts State House.

The restaurant often is listed in lists of best restaurants in the country.
In 2003 Lynch opened two more restaurants across the street from one another. One, called B&G Oysters, specializes in seafood; the other called "The Butcher Shop" honors meat-eaters.
