Tapas at Toro

Whenever I talk to anyone about tapas in the Boston area, Toro seems to come up as the place to go. Toro is a collaboration between Boston-super-chefs Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette – can’t go too wrong with that, right? Matt and I went with our friends Jenn and Andrew on Saturday night, and we [read more →]

Cutty’s – The best sandwiches in Boston?

I finally knocked Cutty’s off of my never-ending list of places I need to try in Boston. The problem is that when I find places I love, I keep going back to them and wind up not trying new places. Maybe it’s good that getting to Cutty’s is kind of a trek from Davis.   [read more →]

Dali Restaurant and Tapas Bar

I started going to Dali Restaurant years ago with my parents when they first moved to the neighborhood. I always thought it was maybe a little overpriced, but consistently good. And we are picky about Spanish food! We even used to try to replicate some of their dishes at home. My mom recently dug up [read more →]

Backbar and Journeyman

Last night Matt and I checked out Backbar, a new cocktail bar in Union Square. With Saloon open in Davis, and now Backbar, Somerville actually kind of has a craft cocktail scene now! The space is small but very open. We made sure we got there early to get a seat at the bar. I [read more →]

Matt and I started off our Superbowl Sunday by running the Super Sunday 5-mile race. I somehow got Matt to agree to this even though he had just taken an overnight bus back from NYC. I was also feeling pretty tired since I picked him up at South Station at 5am, so I’m shocked to [read more →]

Before I had ever tried Pini’s pizza, Matt and I drove by it all the time and inevitably one of us would shout out Piiini’s Pizza in a thick, fake Italian accent. We are both very classy. We still laugh at the name, but we actually love their pizza. It’s now our go to non-fancy [read more →]

Restaurants: Foundry on Elm

I’ve always have high hopes for Foundry on Elm. It’s so close to my apartment and always has great drinks. The food, however…I want to like it, but it’s usually disappointing. I recently heard they got a new chef though, so Katie and I went for brunch when she visited from San Francisco last weekend. [read more →]

Restaurants: Tu Y Yo

Tu Y Yo is a little Mexican restaurant in Powderhouse Square, but it’s definitely not your standard chips and salsa and margaritas the size of your head kind of joint. In fact, they don’t serve margaritas at all. I went once back in March. The only thing I remember was our appetizer: a crepe filled [read more →]

Restaurants: Redbones

Redbones is my favorite neighborhood hangout. The food is delicious and dirt cheap, and they are serious about their beer. The best time to go is definitely during lunch, in my opinion, as it can turn into kind of a madhouse at dinner. I also love sitting at the bar when possible. They were actually [read more →]

Restaurants: Pizzeria Posto

I have finally found a place to get my Neopolitan pizza fix in the Boston area. Pizzaria Posto, located in Davis Square, is right up there with a lot of the great Neopolitan pizzas I’ve had in New York. (Ok, it’s not as good as Motorino, but what is?) Because the pizza is so top [read more →]

Restaurants: Tupelo

Tupelo has been on my list of places to try for awhile now. My mom has been there before and has described it as “like Hungry Mother, but not as good…but still good.” Therefore, whenever we’re craving some southern comfort food, we end up down the street at Hungry Mother. Last night we tried to [read more →]

Restaurants: Muqueca

Muqueca is a little Brazilian restaurant in Inman square, and it quickly became a favorite when my parents first moved to Cambridge a few years ago. We even had them cater my college graduation party. At that time, prices were dirt cheap, they occupied a little hole in the wall space, and didn’t have a [read more →]

Restaurants: Hungry Mother

Hungry Mother quickly became a favorite of my family when it first opened down the street from my parents in Kendall Square last year. The food is kind of like refined Southern food with a French twist. The menu is very small, but it changes often and I have never had anything that I haven’t [read more →]

Lobster Sandwiches

My dad brought home some lobster sandwiches from Alive and Kicking Lobsters today. I just had to share how delicious they were… Instead of the standard lobster “roll,” they put the lobster salad on toasted Italian bread. The salad itself was perfect: very little mayonnaise, generous amount of lobster, and perfectly seasoned. Highly recommended if [read more →]
