Boston Burger Company

When I want to really indulge, I often go for a burger and fries. First off, I’ll take any excuse I can get to eat french fries, but really, the combo is just so classic and comforting that it’s hard to go wrong. At restaurants I visit more than once, I often check out the burger offering, because I really think you can judge a restaurant on their overall skill and awesomeness by how the execute their burger. They’re also great because there are so many different styles and variations that it’s impossible to ever get bored with a burger. And at Boston Burger Company, different styles and variations are the name of the game. (more…)


Anniversary Dinner at Row 34 Boston

It took me far too long to make it to Row 34, but a few weeks back, my better half made reservations there for our anniversary. He made me close my eyes for the whole ride over, while I blindly guessed where we were going based on the turns in the road and the perceived speed of the car. While I got pretty close to guessing the neighborhood, I had no idea we’d end up at Row 34. And even though it took us ages to try it, the experience was well worth the wait. (more…)


Masa Taqueria and Tequila Bar

I first tried Masa Restaurant in the South End during college. I remember at the time thinking it was lavish and indulgent on my ever-depleted college kid budget, and I was enamored with the experience. We went for brunch and I got huevos rancheros, a favorite dish of mine. I’d never had a chance to visit the Masa in Woburn though, despite it being on my daily commute to work for several months this past year. When they introduced their new restaurant concept, Masa Taqueria and Tequila Bar, I had a chance to give it a try and it reframed my idea of what the true Masa experience is. (more…)


Not Your Average Joe’s Harvest Dinner

One of my favorite things about living near Boston is the endless food options. No matter what neighborhood you’re in, whether it’s right in the heart of the city or in one of the many suburbs, good food is all around. It’s essentially a foodie playground, and I am endlessly excited by all of the food adventures that are here for the taking. (more…)


From Italy to France: A Progressive Dinner

The concept of a progressive dinner has always intrigued me. I love the idea of getting to try different tastes at different places throughout the course of a meal, but the thought of physically moving from one location to the next always sort of kept me away. I think part of the joy of dining out is getting to settle into a meal and a space, so when you have you pick up and move right in the middle, I sort of expected that’d ruin the experience. That said, I’m always game for new food experiences, and when I finally decided to try the progressive dinner thing, I found it to be a truly wonderful experience. (more…)


Terramia Ristorante

Hello, friends! Can you tell it’s summer again? I am a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad blogger in the summertime… there’s just so much to do, and it’s hard to sit myself down inside when I could be outdoors! I’m sure you understand the sentiment. I also bought a house recently, and moved into it about a month ago, so that’s been a pretty consuming (but very rewarding) experience. Anyway, it’s been ages since I had a chance to sit down with some fellow bloggers for a meal, but recently I had the opportunity to dine at Terramia Ristorante in the North End. Terramia has been on my to-go-to list for ages, so I was psyched to finally give it a try! (more…)


The Barking Crab

The Barking Crab is somewhat of a Boston landmark. Open in 1994, they provide the city with some amazing seafood options, in a casual, laid-back atmosphere right on the water. In my nearly 10 years living in this city, I haven’t ever had a chance to check it out until a couple of weeks ago, when they hosted a PR event and invited some local foodie folks. (more…)
