Hey y’all! I’m currently on a bus, heading back to NYC, after a quick trip to Boston to celebrate Ty’s 25th! I feel so lucky to have spent 4 years in Boston as an undergrad and I love any excuse to visit.
Cafeteria Boston – 279 Newbury St. – not actually a cafeteria. good, fresh food.
Cafeteria: a restaurant or dining room in a school or a business in which customers serve themselves or are served from a counter and pay before eating
Chicken Lou’s – worth the trip to Northeastern’s campus where this little shack lives…you’ll want to order the TKO.
Conor Larkin’s Grill & Tap – basically on Northeastern’s campus – really good ‘black and blue’ burger – oh, and they have a shotski.
J.P. Licks – A delicious ice-cream chain unique to Boston, you’ll find flavors like Banana Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Peanut Butter Cookies ‘n’ Cream and Coffee Cookies ‘n’ Cream…they have a bunch more but I love the variety of Cookies ‘n’ Cream!
Mike’s Pastry – well-known Italian bakery – 300 Hanover St.
South Street Diner – not your typical diner…more of a local landmark, a funky little spot with good food open 24/7
Stephanie’s on Newbury – 190 Newbury St. – pricey brunch, had a Belgian waffle which left me wanting more
Trident Booksellers & Cafe – 338 Newbury St. – my favorite independent bookstore with absolutely delicious food – much more than a “cafe.” Does your avg cafe have Lemon Ricotta Stuffed French Toast? Didn’t think so…
I adore Boston! It was a splendid place to call home for 4 years in college and I miss it immensely. Alas, living in Boston as a student, I didn’t explore the city quite as much in the culinary sense. I opted for Northeastern’s dining halls and dorm-room ramen most of the time…
When I did venture out (aka when family came to visit and treat me to a REAL meal), I was usually too eager to eat and failed to snap photos of the delicious food prior to shoving down my throat.
BUT…I do have some favorite spots in Boston that I will let y’all know about in future posts!
