New England Travels-Beantown
Boston holds a special place in my heart. I went to college at Emerson and enjoyed my time in this fine city. So on my husband's first New England adventure we had to make a
major stop in Beantown. Food scene is great, weather was pretty good(I would not go in the winter! Summer was great...Fall is the BEST) and the people are unique. Bruins won and they caught the mobster Whitey Bulger. All when we were in town!
Here we go.....
Anything and everything Barbara Lynch.
You want a to hear about a successful woman in the food industry? Look no further.
The woman is unstoppable.
We went to: Butcher Shop, Drink, Sportello and B&G Oysters.
Also working their magic in town are Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette.
We enjoyed meals at Coppa and Torro
The dinner I wish I could have eaten raw fish:
The Paramount. Stand and wait like everyone else.
Best Blueberry pancakes!
Louisburg Square one of the most historic and beautiful parts of Beacon Hill.
Places to walk, talk and check out on a nice day:
Newbury Street, Boston Common, the Boston Public Garden and The Esplanade.
The North End:
Maria's Pastry Shop
For a great dinner...
Cambridge Daytime Activities:
Found our way and wandered around Kinsley Park and Fresh Pond Reservation
Isabella Stewart Gardner (A MUST!)
MFA Boston(caught the Chihuly exhibit which was awesome)
Panopticon (Inside the Hotel Commonwealth and upstairs from the large Eastern Standard restaurant)
Places to stay:
XV Beacon or for total central access Copley Square Hotel or the Marriott
Will follow up this post with MAINE.
