Italian | North End, Boston

Went on one of the coldest nights they have ever had in Boston. Unfortunately they did not have a double door to enter the restaurant so every time someone entered there was a huge draft. We started off sitting at a table next to a window but the cold seeped right through. Ended up at the bar under one of the heating vents which was the best choice for the night. The bartender that served us was very cordially and we carried on a conversation with her. Funny thing about the restaurant was that they had four screens behind the bar. One was tuned to a game and the others had The Big Night playing. I guess they play that continuously every night. I remember the first time I saw this movie and loved it. No sound though so for many that had not seen the movie had no idea what was going on. So that's the environment. The food was incredible. As authentic as it comes as both my wife and I raved about both our meals. Prices were very reasonable, especially for Boston. Will try it again this summer where I am sure we can enjoy a table next to a window. More

I've been hearing rave reviews of Masa since moving to Boston, so I was excited to try the famous $10 brunch. I had the plantain empanada and the breakfast tacos. The empanada + butter was amazing - I wish I'd ordered more of them! The tacos were so-so, but for $10 it was hard to expect anything more. More

Farm-to-table | Nantucket, Cape Cod and the Islands

This is a great place for sharing plates, in fact it’s encouraged but not required! We started with a stuffed artichoke which was tender and flavorful. Then moved onto the the cauliflower which is perfectly cooked and spiced in a most unusual way! For our larger plate we chose duck confit salad with a perfectly poached egg, another great combination! This is fast becoming one of my favorite places on Nantucket, healthy, creative and delicious fare! You must try it! More

Discover Boston

Beantown, dubbed for the baked beans that put the city on the map, is about far more than beans these days. Local restaurants channel the region’s farm-to-table traditions and celebrate the iconic seafood of New England’s coast—no trip to the region is complete without a proper lobster (pronounced “lob-stah,” steamed and served with butter and corn on-the-cob), freshly shucked oysters, fried clams—you name it. Hometown to a handful of internationally influential female restaurateurs and the inimitable legacy of Julia Child, who called Cambridge home, Boston will always be a city where liberal sensibilities meet a global approach, in politics and on the plate.
