Boston is celebrated for its seafood and the Barking Crab, located along the Fort Point Channel, is one the best paces to grab a lobster while experiencing the waterfront. Not a typical Boston seafood restaurant, The Barking Crab is "funky" casual...

20 Vassar St, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
Momogoose had to be one of the first food trucks around. Founded in 1989 by MIT alums, it's only natural they would take a scientific approach to their food cooking. Their barbecued tofu is just the way I like it: chewy, moist and very meat like....

I love walking into a restaurant and being able to feel its vibe from the moment you enter. Puritan is sparkling, open and crisp. The menu reflects that spirit with traditional New England fare, prepared in a contemporary way. No gimmicks, just...

The North End of Boston is the oldest residential area in the city, a small neighborhood inhabited since the 1630's. It's an understatement to say it's loaded with character, and no other spot in Beantown will transport you to another world as...

93 Salem St, Boston, MA 02113, USA
$$$$
Brick oven classics come out of the kitchen in this North End mainstay. The traditional beehive shaped, wood burning oven makes great thin crusted pizza with all the traditional toppings. Mushroom and artichoke just happens to be my favorite....

Toro, located in Boston's South End district, is a little slice of Barcelona in the Northeast. The menu is based on small plates (tapas), and while the ingredients are regionally sourced, the wine list is all Spanish, giving Toro a nice mixture of...

Located in a wonderful old warehouse building in South End, this French brasserie has tiled walls, globe lamps, and streetlights, as well as a great vibe. Check it out for brunch, as I did! Our wonderful server insisted we try the deep-fried,...

If you recognize the name, you might have been one of the lucky recipients of the infamous "nut boxes" this spot is known for. Tatte's second location in Kendall Square {the other is in Brookline} serves other worldly breads and pastries along...

One of the best outdoor spots in Boston is just steps from the waterfront. Aragosta Bar and Bistro overlooks the harbor at the bottom of the city's North End. Fire pits provide the perfect venue for a summer evening cocktail and the lobster bake...

278 Harvard St, Brookline, MA 02446, USA
$$$$
I really like clever. With names like Storming of the Basil, Kale'n It and the Revolution, this food truck makes the grade. The Affectation was a home run with bacon, arugula, goat cheese and a fig reduction. Who says I don't eat meat anymore?...

Flour is the kind of Boston bakery worth a visit—or two. While they're famed for sticky buns, it's not their sweetly glazed, pecan covered pastries that keep residents coming back. It's their on-site homestyle baking that makes every crust, bread,...
