My Favorite Spots in Somerville

Since I just moved, I thought it would be fun to put together some of my favorite spots in Somerville from my two years there. That’s not to say I won’t be going back to these places, ever – after all, Cambridge is just next door. I just know Matt and I definitely stuck to [read more →]

Union Square Donuts

The thought of a maple bacon donut got me out of bed and to Union Square bright and early on Saturday morning. Union Square Donuts just opened in February, and its random location next to the highway on the east side of Union Square and lack of seating don’t seem to be deterring anyone. It [read more →]

Who Makes the Best Banh Mi in Boston?

Matt is still interviewing for and waiting to hear from medical schools, meaning we basically don’t know where we will be living in the fall. We could be New York City, Chicago, Philadelphia…or we could also end up staying in Boston. Because we just don’t know, we’re making a concerted effort get out of our [read more →]

DooWee & Rice

I opened up the fridge a couple nights ago to find absolutely nothing, giving Matt and I a perfect excuse to head down the street to finally try DooWee & Rice. This tiny restaurant opened a few months ago in Powderhouse square, conveniently a block from our apartment. Though I hear DooWee & Rice described [read more →]

Nemo, and Brunch at Olde Magoun’s Saloon

Matt and I started getting a little stir-crazy when it became apparent on Friday night that going out wasn’t really an option. Now, I normally love staying in and cooking – especially on cold nights – but something about the thought of not being able to go anywhere made us both absolutely want to go [read more →]

Rino’s Place

Matt and I have talked about going to Rino’s ever since we moved to Boston, but hearing about the long wait kept us away until last week. (I blame you, Guy Fieri.) We went on a Friday for lunch, thinking there would be no wait. Of course we were wrong…we still had to wait an [read more →]

Chez Henri

I have a rule that I’ll only buy a Groupon (or similar deal) if its for a restaurant I actually wanted to try before seeing the deal. That doesn’t happen very often, so I jumped at the Chez Henri deal offered over the summer. Their French-Cuban menu always intrigued me, and I had been dying [read more →]

Brunch at Church (the restaurant)

I spent last Saturday afternoon at Church brunching with some fellow Boston foodies. I was impressed by the space, noticing the exposed brick at the bar and the comfortable couches where some parties were brunching. I had already heard great things about Church’s cocktail menu, so I immediately ordered one of their bloody marys. I [read more →]

Lone Star Taco Bar

Yesterday I tried Lone Star Taco Bar‘s new weekday brunch with the Boston Brunchers. I had been to Lone Star Taco Bar once before, just a couple of months ago, but had a strange experience. It was a Saturday night and the wait was probably twice as long as the hour they told us it [read more →]

Ball Square Cafe

Those familiar with Ball Square in Somerville might have heard of the Sound Bites vs. Ball Square Cafe breakfast rivalry. There is a deep rooted animosity between the two restaurant owners. The abbreviated version goes something like this… Sound Bites existed long before Ball Square Cafe. The landlord renting out the space to Sound Bites [read more →]

East Cambridge Smoke This Rib Fest 2012

Sunday was my first time attending East Cambridge’s Smoke This Rib Fest. The impressive event, now in it’s third year running, pulled together over 20 local restaurants for a massive outdoor rib competition. Ribs and other food samples were available for purchase a la carte, but a $20 tasting ticket got you ten rib samples [read more →]

Four Burgers

Last week I dined with some fellow Boston bloggers at Four Burgers, a fast casual restaurant with locations in Boston and Cambridge. Its concept is straightforward: you choose from one of four burger options (beef, turkey, salmon, or black bean), and then customize it with your choice of bun, cheese, and other toppings. They sometimes [read more →]

T.W. Food

T.W. Food is tucked away in West Cambridge, a quiet area of town I don’t venture to enough. It had been high on my list to try for awhile. So, when I won a gift certificate to any Boston area restaurant from the nice people at Tasted Menu recently, I picked T.W. Food. Matt and [read more →]

Drink

I love a good craft cocktail bar. I don’t even mind paying a lot for a great cocktail, or waiting awhile for to be made. It’s worth it for the ability to talk to and learn from the bartender, and try something you may not have otherwise thought to try. Fort Point’s Drink is known [read more →]

The Boston Sail Loft

I had grand plans to go on a whale watch* for my birthday the other weekend. As it always happens when you make weather-dependent plans, the weather did not cooperate. Matt thinks it’s for the best. *I know Boston whale watches are supposed to be for tourists, but for me they never get old. In [read more →]

Brunch at M3

Everyone knows I love to brunch, which is why I was so happy when M3 opened right down the street from me in Davis Square. Not only do I love having another brunch option, they even offer a Saturday brunch. (Which, in my opinion, is really more difficult to find in Boston than it should [read more →]

Kika Tapas

Last week, I met up with my friends and fellow-bloggers Katie, Erin, and Noelle for an after-work dinner at Kika Tapas in Kendall Square. I had been very curious about Kika after hearing the comparisons between it and Dali, and didn’t know what to expect after my last not-great Dali experience. We lucked out with [read more →]

Sunday Brunching: Catalyst

Catalyst, yet another newbie in the Kendall Square dining scene, has been my latest brunch discovery. My fellow bruncher Katie and I went on Sunday to try making a dent in our growing lists of Boston restaurants to try. Catalyst’s interior blends well with the high-tech neighborhood: high, exposed ceilings and modern glass light fixtures [read more →]

My second event with the Boston Brunchers wasn’t brunch at all, but a tour of the Boston Jewelers Exchange Building. Located in Downtown Crossing, this beautiful and historic building houses over 125 jewelers, many of which are family owned and operated. Since we are technically “brunchers,” food and drink were provided by Scholars. I had [read more →]

West Bridge

I have been hearing rave reviews from the newly opened West Bridge in Kendall Square. Katie and I paid a quick – and mostly unphotographed – visit several weeks ago for drinks and an appetizer, and were sold immediately when they brought us an amuse bouche of fried chicken skin with malt vinegar aioli. Really, [read more →]
