My girlfriend gave me a nice present and bought us tickets up to Boston and stayed at a swanky boutique hotel in the heart of Boston! How lovely. Unfortunately, our trip got cut short because we had to rush back to NYC ahead of Frankenstorm...nonetheless, we had fun, lovely time together in Boston and had lots of very good seafood. Enjoy!
Today's special at Trattoria Il Panino on 11 Parmenter Street (North End Boston, off of Hanover Street). Fresh ingredients and the pasta was done just right!
My girlfriend's...also today's special! yum
Just looking at this photo makes me hungry right now...!
After stuffing ourselves with excellent Italian food...we decided to go for light seafood dishes for dinner that night...and we ended up ordering the Shellfish Tower at Mare Oyster Bar (135 Richmond Street, North End Boston, off of Hanover Street). Really liked this oyster bar and this shellfish tower was amazing...especially with some good Pinot Grigio (my gf's choice) and Sicilian Mojito (my choice). The seafood here was incredibly fresh! and the oysters were mostly native to Massachusetts or Maine.
You cannot go to Boston and not pay a visit to Mike's Pastry. Their Cannolis are my favorite by far and perhaps the best in the world...but expect a huge line, even spilling outside the pastry shop. Yum!
