The Struggles of Eating at Restaurants With Food Sensitivities

Ever since I developed my food sensitivities (read my story here: https://goo.gl/bmvT2a) going to restaurants is something I’ve avoided doing due to the struggle of trying to find something I can eat. My sensitivities are not common and aren’t really allergies, so they are not listed under the 8 major allergies, which include food products restaurants try to avoid by having alternatives, such as a gluten-free meal. Since my problem is uncommon, there isn’t really alternatives I can eat.
With that being said, I don’t really like to go to restaurants and I try going as little as possible. I …

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 …

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 …

 

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. …

 

Cagney’s

One of my favorite places to eat is Cagney’s, located in Quincy. This restaurant has a fun, casual atmosphere to it. There’s two separate rooms inside, one that features a big, wrap around bar, and another that has mostly high top tables. The turkey burger is my favorite thing to get here. It’s served with salsa and guacamole, which give it a really unique flavor. The Harvest Vegetable Pizza is also delicious. It’s a thin crust pizza with mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, buffalo mozzarella, garlic, and basil. They offer sangria by the pitcher, which is a great deal if you want …
