Taking a bite outta Boston

Chris and I recently spent a long weekend in Boston. It was my first time visiting Massachusetts and I had an absolute blast exploring Boston. Please believe the hunt for restaurants began as soon as I booked my flights! Here are some of the highlights:

Redbones was packed Friday night but well worth the wait for delicious barbecue.

Chris ordered the ribs and I went for the “meat and three” because I’m a sucker for trying as many sides as possible. I’m happy I did because the macaroni and cheese, greens and corn pudding were all quite good, as was my barbecue chicken and the buffalo shrimp we got to start the meal.

We got our history fix by walking the Freedom Trail

and ended up at the delightful Neptune Oyster.

Chris enjoyed the raw bar’s finest

and I savored every rich, buttery bite of my first-ever lobster roll.

Great dim sum brunch at Myers + Chang, where offerings included crispy salt-and-pepper calamari with jalapeƱos,

lemony shrimp dumplings, chicken congee and dan dan noodles with spicy peanut sauce.

Dinner at Sportello was pure heaven from start to finish (had a couple cocktails at Drink, the bar downstairs, before dinner).

Pheasant soup

Strozzapreti with braised rabbit, picholine olives and rosemary

Veal loin with peas, fava beans and mint.

If you have a favorite restaurant in Boston please let me know, as I definitely want to go back for another visit!
