Two food-snoot friends are relocating from Boerum Hill, Brooklyn to Newton.
Both friends enjoy good-naturedly ribbing me about how much better NYC is, in terms of culinary excitement. I'm compiling a "Welcome to Boston!" itinerary to showcase our very best, most tantalizing meals. Money is no object to them (although they favor cheap finds). She will be working in Kendall Square; he will be working in Newton.
On my list:
Drinks and a meat platter at Sycamore
Lobster rolls at Neptune Oyster
Beer and oysters at Row 34
A moody, romantic dinner at Erbaluce
Dim Sum at Winsor Cafe
Apps at Fairsted Kitchen, dinner at Ribelle
A fancy-pants meal at Menton
Drinks at the Hawthorne
Eggplant subs at White Sport
Burn-your-face-off wings at State Park
Summery drinks, empanadas and sorbets at Gustazo
Tapas at Taberno de Haro (and gin at their new gin bar)
Day trip for clam rolls at Bob's in Kittery
Portsmouth day trip, dinner at Moxy's
What else, Hounds? I want them to be WOWED.
