Earlier this month the co-owners of Belly Wine Bar, The Blue Room and Central Bottle announced that they would be closing their two restaurants in Kendall Square in Cambridge (Central Bottle, the wine store, will live on). Belly Wine Bar would have turned five this September and The Blue Room has been open for 26 years (21 under this management team).
I am a huge Wahlburgers fan and I always associate going there with summertime. Their very first location is in Hingham, MA which is right next to Hull, MA, the town where my father grew up and our family still has a home. I love stopping at Wahlburgers as I'm coming or going from Nantasket Beach.
On our final morning in Brooklyn, NY we woke up to the sound of rain tapping against our windows. It seemed only fair, since the forecast for the entire long weekend had been for rain and we had nothing but sun on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
We had made plans to spend our last meal in this beloved borough with a family friend, who happens to live two blocks from the Airbnb we rented. She suggested East One Coffee Roasters, which had just opened and she hadn't had a chance to check out yet.
On our third morning in Brooklyn we decided to get up, eat a quick breakfast (bagels, of course) and then head out to explore the neighborhood. We walked up Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, all the way into Cobble Hill and then back down on the parallel street, Court Street.
I always have the best Italian food in New York City, and our dinner at Gersi in Carroll Gardens was no exception. The place was recommended to me by a friend who I used to share meals with at Supper in the East Village, so I knew her suggestion would be solid.
The Galler family headed to Brooklyn, NY this weekend to attend a wedding. My brother-in-law's older brother was getting hitched, and we were all invited to celebrate.
The wedding took place at the DUMBO Lofts, a space directly below the Manhattan Bridge. The location was outrageously cool and unique.
The next morning, my brother-in-law's parents hosted the most beautiful brunch at Atrium DUMBO, which is situated right in between the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge.
I have a Pamela Barksy canvas bag inside my purse that reads, "I'm having an affair with New York." I have always loved the Big Apple. Despite countless trips to Manhattan (I think if I actually tried to count, it might be close to 100 visits), before this weekend I had never been to Brooklyn.
It's no secret that I love ice cream. I believe it would be factually correct to state that it's my primary food group. As such, when a friend told me about Honeycomb Creamery on Mass. Ave in Cambridge, I knew I had to check it out.
Back in October I took my first trip to Little Donkey in Central Square in Cambridge, the latest collaboration between Boston super chefs Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette. I went for dinner and I have to admit, I was a little underwhelmed.
This week, when a friend suggested we escape the office and try Little Donkey's lunch menu, I was skeptical. When I visited the website and saw the lunch menu was truly a different set of offerings than dinner, I started to feel optimistic.
One of my 2017 New Year's resolutions is to up my breakfast game. When I shared my list of goals in January, I named five specific places I was hoping to try, one of which is Linda's Donuts.
One of my best friends from college was born on Cinco de Mayo, so each year we look for a special Mexican place to celebrate. This year the birthday girl's wish was to try Burro Bar in Brookline, the sibling of The Painted Burro in Somerville, which is my undisputed favorite place for brunch right now.
Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite occasions. What's not to love? Chips! Guacamole! Margaritas! Sombreros! It's an instant party.
Thankfully, there are a ton of great restaurants and bars that get into the Cinco de Drinko spirit every year. Here are my top picks for where to celebrate.
