The Brahmin

I tweeted about my visit to Boston’s newest tapas place – The Brahmin – last week.  Turns out this is a great place to meet up with a friend for a few hours of cocktails and tapas.  We grazed on a few things including the grilled white asparagus and scallops with cured bacon.  Both of which were delicious and a good portion.

My friend was more adventurous and ordered “the older sister” to drink while I defaulted to my trustee prosecco.  Her drink came looking pretty and tasting strong.  (Mine came bubbly.  Just the way I like it.)  Brahmin has a sizable bar area and I can definitely see this place filling with young professionals on a Friday night.

Good overall ambiance and experience.  I would definitely recommend as an after-work retreat given its location on the newly-revived Stanhope Street in Back Bay.


Boston Restaurant Week

How did I manage to forget about Summer Restaurant Week in Boston?!

I just read a little blip about it this morning and was overcome with immediate panic because I hadn’t made any reservations.  I hadn’t even narrowed down my list of restaurant considerations (this is usually the longest part of the process).  Under the gun, I plucked one off my Boston Restaurant Bucket List and made a reservation.

I’ll weigh in on which one I chose and how it went later this week…

Watermelon & Feta

Got a very juicy and delicious watermelon salad with feta and balsalmic from Vlora on Boylston Street in Boston.

What a nice treat for a Friday!

Boston Restaurant Bucket List

After 5 years in Beantown I am well entrenched in my favorite food spots.  The first good step in every plan is to write it down, so with the internet as my witness, please find my Boston Bucket List below.

Rialto in Harvard Square (Cambridge)
Lineage on Harvard Street (Brookline)
The Salty Pig on Dartmouth Street (Back Bay)
Dante on the Charles (Cambridge)
Toro on Washington Street (South End)

I’m sure there are more so please do tell!
