A Bite Out Of Portland

When you read Portland what do you think of? Is it the big city in Oregon? Probably. But when I think of Portland, I think of the delicious restaurants that line the cobble stone streets in the waterfront city of Portland, Maine.  Bon Appetit named Portland the 2018 food city of the year. While there... Continue Reading →

The Smoke Shop (No, not that kind…)

It may be legal in Massachusetts, but The Smoke Shop in Kendall Square is not a place where you can marijuana. The only thing getting high at The Smoke Shop is the pile of bbq on customers' plates. Andy Husbands' award-winning bbq joint offers the classic smoke meats selection -- the likes of pulled pork,... Continue Reading →

Oklahoma (By Way Of Boston’s South End)?

Whaling in Oklahoma started appearing on lists and my Instagram feed shortly after I arrived in Boston. But as the note on my phone continued to grow with restaurants to visit, keeping up with the "must-see" spots became increasingly difficult. Most people probably don't scroll through their open table apps just to see what's out... Continue Reading →

A Friendsgiving Feast

Last year for #friendsgiving I made chicken cutlets and macaroni and cheese. This year for Friendsgiving I followed a more traditional menu, and was rather impressed with the results. Any gathering, friendsgiving or not, in my opinion, is incomplete, without snacks. For the evenings apps, I decided the best way to go was charcuterie. Who... Continue Reading →

The door opened east of Upstate New York and I am excited to officially announce the beginning of a new chapter in Boston! I am quickly adjusting to my new home... Continue Reading →

At some point, what was once a word to describe a meal that combined breakfast and lunch, became a verb used across twenty-something’s everywhere to describe an afternoon of indulging in comfort food and day drinking. Although I'd hate to admit the term brunching is part of my vernacular, I am quite fond of the... Continue Reading →

Feeling Fancy at Yono's

There really is no such thing as normal. But dining at Yono's is certainly an experience far grander than just a "normal" night out. It is without a doubt fine dining, where your water glass is never empty and your utensils are changed out with every course. But what makes a dinner at Yono's truly... Continue Reading →

Making It Through March

Today is the 31st, and as springtime starts to fill the air, I finally have a moment to reflect on the craziness that has been the month of March. A lot happened this month. I found myself in a different city for 3 consecutive weekends, never really catching my breath as a I rushed into... Continue Reading →
