Just had another great breakfast at Scups!
For those who don't remember - Scups is probably - along with Speeds! - the most unusually sited restaurant in Boston - It's in the middle of a working marine terminal in Eastie, overlooking the inner harbor and the Boston skyline. It's a pleasant walk from Maverick Square T stop; if you're driving, just wave to the guard, if he pops up, as you drive in!
Yesterday I had their great parsnip soup, half an "Asian" empanada, and a bite of my friend's wonderful "millionaire's bacon" - thick sliced, with brown sugar and "secret ingredients". I'm getting my own dish of these next time! I love how you order something simple - like grilled cheese, but get something really interesting thrown in, like fresh garlic dressing.
The place is cheerful and welcoming, with a long communal table and stools with a view. (And breakfast isn't served until 10, alas!)
I haven't tried their dinners, yet. The cooks are trying out lots of things, apparently with the same homey but interesting bent as their breakfast items, with a few specials every day instead of a regular menu.
