Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer Turns Sweet 16 May 4-10!

We might be only to be able to see white snow outside beyond our imaginations with icicles hanging off of houses and buildings everywhere.  Temperatures so frigid you can’t imagine that you truly have to go out into it. Snow days galore that affected local business including many of our participants.  Public transportation, traffic and parking are all major inconveniences right now.  This winter is one for the history books.
The days are staying lighter a little longer and we all hope for winter’s end to come sooner rather than later.  With spring comes the 16th Annual Boston Bakes for Breast …

 

An Afternoon at Mistral

Walking into Mistral around noon, I almost expected to see some sort of secret, daytime chaos that would explain how the restaurant pulls off its perfectly orchestrated dinners. But the restaurant was pristine and silent, sunlight poured into the room through large windows, and the kitchen hummed quietly in the background. In a few hours, the restaurant would be lit only by the tentacles of chandeliers and filled with the clink of forks on plates and the murmur of wait staff getting to know their guests.
I met with Shane Gray, Mistral’s pastry chef, and Mark D’Alessandro, the general manager, at …

 

Visit All Salvatore’s Locations October 20 & 21!

As I have mentioned before it is the people we meet that makes fundraising very special. When someone wants to do more for you and give you a donation over and above their support of one of our events Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer, we are very grateful for their belief in our organization Bakes for Breast Cancer.
We would like to thank our friends at Salvatore’s (all of their five locations in the greater Boston area) for wanting to remember the importance of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month; a time to remember those who have passed away, those who are …

 

Harpoon Fest

 
This past weekend I attended Harpoon Fest for the first time! Harpoon Fest is an annual festival held at the Harpoon Brewery in the Seaport district of Boston. There was perfect weather for it, and since it’s so close to the ocean, there was a nice breeze too. The festival is a way for you to taste the different kinds of beer that Harpoon makes. Beer isn’t usually my first choice (I’m usually a fruity drinks, margarita type), but it was fun to try something new.

My favorite kind ended up being the UFO White beer. It’s on the lighter side …

 

Venezia

 
This past weekend was my college graduation! It’s crazy how fast time goes by, but I’m excited to see what will come next in life! To celebrate, I went to Venezia, located right outside of Boston, in Dorchester. Although I live fairly close to the restaurant, this was my first time there. It has a beautiful location overlooking the waterfront with big glass windows lining the walls. 
For dinner, I got the chicken pizzaiola, and it was delicious. It was three big pieces of sautéed chicken covered in prosciutto and cheese with tomatoes on top, served with crispy angel hair pasta. …

Brunch at The Pour House

What’s the best way to start a Sunday morning? With brunch! Boston offers a ton of brunch options, just walk down any main street on a weekend morning and you’ll see for yourself. Every time the topic of brunch gets brought up, someone always asks me if I’ve been to the Pour House and proceeds to rave about how amazing their brunch is. Their brunch seems to be legendary in Boston. This past Sunday I finally decided to check it out.

The Pour House is located on Boylston Street, right across from the Prudential Center. It looks small from the outside, …

Pop-up Restaurant: The Spotted Tiger

 
I’m a fan of pop-up restaurants, ever since I tried Whisk in Boston – see my post here. The pop-up concept is all about different settings, very passionate young chefs, and a unique theme. On Labor Day, my foodie friends and I were very excited about dining at the newest pop-up in Boston, The Spotted Tiger. The location? The swanky Hawthorne bar in Kenmore Square. The Chefs? Tracy Chang of Guchi’s Midnight Ramen pop-up, Ran Duan of Sichuan Garden in Woburn, and Becca Arnold of Tavern Road in Boston. The theme? Chinese cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. By the way, The Hawthorne won …
