3 Great Breakfast Spots in Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Sun, Sep 20, 2015

Brunch gets all of the attention, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Get to one of these great breakfast spots in Boston (provided by Thrillist) if you're looking for some tried and true breakfast foods. 

1. Henrietta's Table | Harvard Square

"What you’re getting: Malted waffle and red flannel hash
Henrietta’s Table is your classic farmhouse kitchen nestled inside Harvard Square's Charles Hotel -- but don't let the fact that it's in a hotel deter you. Known for its hearty, New England farm-to-table fare and local ingredients, HT serves up burly breakfast plates like cream chipped beef on buttermilk biscuits and sirloin with eggs, not to mention its popular red flannel hash with poached eggs and malted waffle with homemade apple butter."

2. Blunch | South End

"What you’re getting: Sausage eggwich and a chocolate chip cookie
Sometimes you just want a sandwich for breakfast and for those times, you go to Blunch. Think thick, fluffy frittata-style eggwiches and warm toasty bagels filled with melted mozzarella, smoked turkey, and spicy aioli."

3. Zaftigs | Brookline

"What you’re getting: Banana stuffed French toast, potato pancakes, and corned beef hash and eggs
The only complaint about breakfast at this Jewish deli is that weekend lines can be OUTRAGEOUS. Luckily, Zaftigs serves breakfast all day, every day. Enjoy fan favorites like the challah French toast and the corned beef hash and eggs."

5 Great Outdoor Bars in Boston

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, May 11, 2015

The warm weather is here (to stay - fingers crossed)! Enjoy the sunshine at one of these awesome places around Boston:

1. Belly Wine Bar | Kendall Square

"Not only can you now enjoy their whole-animal "Arm + A Leg" or fried-chicken dinners on the canopy'd brick patio, but they've also unveiled a Summertime-fun, tiki-styled daiquiri stand serving Plantation rums on Wednesday and Thursday nights."

2. Society On High | Financial District

"The latest venture from the chef/owner behind Sorriso and the Leather District's Les Zygomates, Society on High's a 110-seat, breakfast-thru-dinner FiDi bistro rocking local fare, late-night libations, and a huge, soon-to-open, palm tree-laden patio billed as a little bit of "Miami right here in downtown Boston"."

3. Barcelona Wine Bar | Brookline

"Pretend you're dining on Las Ramblas and not on Beacon St (not that there's anything wrong with Beacon St) as you take down tasty tapas and sangria on what's billed as Brookline's biggest patio."

4. Rooftop at the Revere | Theatre District

"Billed as an "urban oasis and chic lounge" on the Revere Hotel's seventh-floor pool deck, this much-needed rooftop space boasts scenic city views, rentable cabanas, and a nine-seat bar, not to mention imposing flower pots and a small-bites menu complete with lobster roll sliders."

5. The Sinclair | Harvard Square

"Nestled atop a sun-soaked roofdeck that's overlooked by jealous desk jockeys trapped in their offices, this outdoor oasis tucked away from the masses offers sunset views and shaded high tops, not to mention tasty 'tails like the Kentucky Luau (bourbon, pineapple-cinnamon gomme, Peychaud's/Angostura bitters) to be enjoyed before the big Gold Panda show."

5 Great Mexican Restaurants for Cinco De Mayo

Posted by Susie Callahan on Mon, May 04, 2015


In light of Cinco de Mayo, head over to one of these great places for awesome Mexican fare...

1. Olecito | Inman Square

"Olecito is Inman Square’s hidden gem, literally a hole-in-the-wall across the street from sister restaurant, Olé. Locals say it's where you get the most bang for your buck. Expect to get amazing chips, tacos, tortas, and burritos swiftly in a familiarly decorated bright yellow, four-table space."

2. The Painted Burro | Somerville

"In the heart of Davis Square, The Painted Burro offers the crowd an energetic vibe (no doubt due to its proximity to Tufts) combined with an upscale, modern feel. In time for warmer weather, The Painted Burro has already started opening its giant storefront windows, turning indoor dining into one big outdoor fiesta flush with innovative creations such as its crab cake and calamari taco."

3. Lone Star Taco Bar | Allston

"Lone Star boasts as much acclaim with its Mexican street food as it does its mezcal and tequila-based cocktails. The cooly lit taco bar shares owners (and a kitchen) with the much lauded Deep Ellum, and offers up smoked chilies, chorizos, and masa corn tortillas -- all made in-house."

4. El Centro | South End

"Among the nation's top taquerias, chef and owner Allan Rodriguez opened El Centro in Boston’s South End to give the city a Mexican, Sonora-style restaurant with fresh ideas, and creative menu options. Menu highlights include a classic charcoal-grilled Arrachera A La Tampiquena steak with green sauce and the Campechanos tacos, combining carne asada and al pastor. In 2013, the restaurant opened its second location in Brookline with furnishings and art handpicked by the owner, and brought over from his native Mexico."

5. Dorado Tacos | Brookline

"Although considered to be Mexican fast food, Dorado Tacos does not skimp on the quality. The restaurant’s cemitas are set up on toasted sesame seed egg buns with avocado, Oaxaca cheese, black beans, chipotle, and cilantro. The restaurant is value friendly and the perfect spot to grab a quick bite if Mexican is what you’re craving."
