Even though I grew up in Massachusetts and moved back to Boston over two years ago, last weekend was my first ever trip to Portland, Maine. It was long overdue. We had an amazing time and tried to cram as much food into our short trip as possible. Do you ever watch that Food Network [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 →]


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 →]

Area Four

I finally made it to Area Four after hearing and reading so many good things about it. I was super intrigued by their pizza dough being made with sourdough starter and their Woodstone oven with three separate heat sources, but would it live up to my beloved Posto? I went in knowing that this wouldn’t [read more →]

Sunday Funday in Brooklyn

Matt and I found ourselves back in NYC for his gig last weekend. This time, we scheduled a late night bus back to Boston on Sunday so we could spend the day in Brooklyn. I was introduced to the amazingness of Brooklyn when I met Matt. I was living in the East Village at the [read more →]

I recently had the pleasure of brunching at B Street in Newton with the Boston Brunchers. While I was certainly expecting a tasty meal, I had no idea how much of a treat we were in for. I noticed when I arrived that the atmosphere was cozy and inviting, and the staff couldn’t have been [read more →]

I (reluctantly) rolled out of bed bright and early last Sunday morning to run the B.A.A. 10K, the middle race in the B.A.A. Distance Medley. This was my first official 10K race ever, and I was actually really looking forward to it. (That is, up until my alarm went off at 5:45am.) I had been [read more →]

Sunday Brunching at The Breslin

Our final stop in our New York trip last weekend was brunch at The Breslin. I talked a little bit before about how we’re always torn between wanting to go to old favorites and trying new places whenever we’re in NYC – well, The Breslin is sort of new. We went once almost two years [read more →]

Another Great Weekend in NYC

Things have been busier than normal over in my world. Last week I had my first paper due for the online course I’m taking, then I flew back from Huntsville late Friday night, took an early Saturday morning bus to NYC for Matt’s gig, and then flew out of NYC on Sunday afternoon to go [read more →]

Urban Stack, Chattanooga, TN

Matt and I drove from Nashville to Chattanooga with no real agenda. To be honest, the only reason we went was that I didn’t have enough hotel points for a third night in Nashville, but I did have just enough for one night in Chattanooga. I guess we’re cheap! Our plan ended up working out [read more →]

Loveless Cafe, Nashville, TN

I really wanted to like Loveless Cafe. We drove all the way out to the outskirts of Nashville, fully expecting at least an hour long wait, for their “famous” Southern comfort food. The motel-turned-cafe dates back to the 50’s, but has since changed owners several times and undergone renovations. Now the cafe is an entire [read more →]

City House, Nashville, TN

Having apparently not learned our lesson from our missteps in Nashville, Matt and I chose a restaurant called City House for dinner on our second night that was a mile north of downtown. The route we walked to get there was pretty deserted again – I guess Matt and I are really spoiled by living [read more →]

Whenever we visit a new city, Matt and I try to avoid the downtown touristy areas and wander to the more food-centric parts of the city. Unfortunately, I was too busy trying to figure out what to do in Huntsville that I sort of neglected our weekend trip to Nashville. I thought we could just [read more →]
