Serious Eats: Talk
What I ate in Boston
So you helped me decide Boston eats these past few weeks, and now that I have returned from my adventure I can provide you with a recap of what the:
Thursday: Sticky buns from Flour (I don't love sticky buns but these weren't too sweet), Zuni Roll (awesome) and the Schlow (disappointing) at the Parish Cafe, drinks (baci ball and another I could not remember) and candied bacon cashews at Drink in Southie, corn ravioli (tasted like summer) at the Franklin in the South End.
Friday: spicy chicken wings and potato and vegetable pizzas (they should call them flatbreads) at Cambridge 1 in Fenway, sweet cream ice cream with hot fudge at J.P. Licks in Brookline, Legal Seafood in Back Bay for clam chowder, crab dip, lobster dinner (yay yay Shabbat Shalom yay and I barely ate my sides) and numerous free desserts (one of the hosts works there). Also, too many drinks for my hosts at Lega Seafood and 28 Degrees (I am not a big drinker and if they ever do The Real Housewives of Boston, they should film it at 28 Degrees).
Saturday: South End Buttery breakfast (Peanut Buttery with jam, AMAZING), Toscanini's ice cream for a snack (burnt caramel was so-so but the honey lavender was incredible go try it NOW), Russell Tavern in Harvard Square for lunch (got the toad in the hole which came with the best hash browns of my life), Harpoon Brewery Tour for funsies (I don't like beer but the cider was fantastic) and a three-hour wait at Neptune Oyster for the GREATEST LOBSTER ROLLS OF ALL TIME. Totally worth the wait. Dripping in butter, filled with sweet lobster, so awesome. I also got some Jonah crab claws for an appetizer, which are like stone crab's smaller, gentler cousins.
Pre-plane early morning (4:30 am) breakfast was cannoli from Mike's pastry. Didn't care for the pastry shell so ate the filling straight. Wonderful, if a little too sweet for 4:30 in the morning!
Thanks for all the suggestions! I can't wait to go back to Boston one day to try the rest!
