Apologies for the lack of posts lately...the last few weeks have been a whirlwind because I accepted a job and have been busy moving back to New York. As a tribute to my beloved Boston, I have come up with a list of the top 10 places around town I will miss the most.
Dave's Fresh Pasta (Somerville, MA) - a rotating selection of fresh homemade ravioli and accompanying sauces, not to mention one of the best sandwiches in town. Oh, and don't miss the little wine shop inside, which is meticulously stocked with reasonably priced bottles of wine from small producers and a really informative staff that has never let me down with a good wine rec.
Highland Kitchen (Somerville, MA) - some of the best bartenders in town, great cocktails, fresh, seasonal american food with a southern bent, wonderful live bluegrass music for sunday brunch
Clear Flour Bread (Brookline, MA) - not the first time this bread mecca has graced this blog, artisan breads and pastry made using traditional french techniques
Sherman Market & Cafe (Somerville, MA) - small privately owned grocery store committed to offering on the best in local produce and packaged foods - as in just about everything is from Massachusetts, including farm fresh eggs, cheese and milk. Don't miss out on the dried Baer's Beans.
Savenor's (Cambridge, MA) - Aside from the fact that Jack Savenor was Julia Child's butcher - she signed her initials are on the front entrance sidewalk, it is really the best butcher shop around
Kickass Cupcakes & Dairy Bar (Somerville, MA) - cupcakes in flavors like Green Monster - The infamous Sam Adams Cream Stout Cupcake...chocolate cupcake with a chocolate beer ganache center and green chocolate beer frosting topped with cocoa nibs, need I say more
Tremont 647 (South End of Boston, MA) - Fantastic Sunday brunch complete with "big girl" mimosas and homemade nutella filled pop tarts...and $2 Taco Tuesdays
Sonsie (Boston, MA) - Prime people watching on Newbury Street with great salads and gourmet brick oven pizzas
Moultan's (Medford, MA) - Family owned and operated and the freshest seafood around (the owner hits the Boston Piers daily). Take out or eat in.
Coolidge Corner Clubhouse (Brookline, MA) - The best place to watch a Red Sox/Bruins/Patriots/Celtics game, always a great selection of beer on tap, delicious chicken nachos
