    Quincy Market / Faneuil Hall

    31 reviews

    Quincy Market is one of the first places I take guests who visit me in Boston! It's an amazing place to spend an afternoon, especially if you're really hungry. There are probably close to 75 different eateries (including several offering famous clam chowda!) within the marketplace, and the smells in that place are just tantalizing. If the weather is nice, ...

    Boston beer works

    Awesome comfort food at Boston Beer Works, their nachos are a staple of mine. They make their own beer and have enough of a selection for just about everybody. Went on a tour of the brewery once which was real cool to see also.

    Lost along the Freedom Trail and we had no idea we were doing it backwards, the munchkin and I got hungered. Well we ran right into the closer truck between some umbrella ice cream stands and I was like lets get rosemary french fries! The munchkin had been begging for some ice cream. So I was happy when her eyes ...

    Union Oyster House

    The vibe in Union Oyster house is extremely inviting. If you go, make sure to try the clam chowder - it's out of this world. It's also right on the freedom trail, so it's easily accessible while you're touring.

    Maria's Pastry Shop

    4 reviews

    Just a turn from the packed mikes bakery, but not already pre filled cannolis and just as good. If you're not down to wait in line at mikes, walk a block and get a cannoli from Maria's instead.

    Small place but arguably one of the most popular at North End. There is almost always a wait outside the tiny door, the interior is crowded but customers get to be up and close with the kitchen staff and see how the chefs operate. The waiters yells out your order to the kitchen, quite a sight and experience. The food ...

    New Haven-style pizza here for us in the South End! Plus excellent beer & wine selection, incredible ice creams, kid-friendly. Super high quality, super fresh ingredients - when you eat pizza here it feels medicinal. There is often a wait, so we tend to try and get there early.

    Pricey but the food is quite good. The ambiance and service of the place are superb. Their maki are especially good, inventive and the contrast in flavor is amazing. They also have some interesting dishes including a mini fire grill that can sear salmon right at the table. Ideal place to go for a classy dinner or date.

    Duck confit with jalapeño and poached eggs make a very special brunch. Combined with a great cocktail list including my new fave the Paloma, this is a solid Back Bay choice for brunch or dinner with a Mexican twist.
