How does water-main break affect Boston restos?

VivreManger | May 1, 2010 05:59 PM

As most by now should already know, because of a water-main break Boston and many (but not all) the surrounding communities are under a boil-water for at least a minute requirement.

Currently http://www.boston.com/ is carrying the story.

Cambridge gets its water from an independent source and is not affected.

Apart from Cambridge, it strikes me that certain food preparations will be more cumbersome since cold foods that require rinsing will now have to be prepared with boiled and then cooled water. Ice cube makers connected directly to water supplies will have to be shut down. As a result iced drinks will be very difficult to prepare.

Bottom line: if you want a pina colada you will probably have to get to your favorite Harvard Square watering hole.
