Let’s take a trip to Boston, Massachussetts, previous home of Benjamin Frankin, Ben Affleck, and hearty clam chowder. There is lots to love about Boston, the history, amazing seafood, and Fenway Park, are just some of the attractions that make this East Coast city so great. I recently visited Boston for the first time and was instantly impressed. Some of my favorite places to check out during a trip are the restaurants. The food in a city plays a major role in my overall satisfaction with my stay. Sure, the views are nice, but if i’m dreading my next meal, what’s the point? Because it was my first time visiting this city I did a little research before I left. I ended up visiting some of the cool spots I found online, and luckily I wasn’t disappointed. Here are some of my favorites.
Tatte is a Boston treasure. This cute coffee shop chain is scattered all across the city and is super picturesque and delicious. They offer tartines, shakshuka, pastries, coffee, and more. I enjoyed this café so much that I ended up visiting twice during my weekend stay. Throughout my visits I tried vanilla lattes (both hot and iced), a fudgey brownie, and a sugar doughnut. The brownie I got from Tatte was probably the most chocolatey, decadent brownie I have ever had the pleasure of scarfing down.
Citrus and Salt is a trendy Baja-coast inspired Mexican restaurant with beachy eats and funky cocktails. This spot is totally instagrammable and the cocktails are to die for. I ordered the butter poached lobster tacos and a drink called “I didn’t text you, tequila did,” that contains Xicaru Silver Mezcal, Altos Plata, passion fruit, dragon fruit, lime, agave, and dragon salt. My sister had the same tacos as I did and ordered a drink called “baecation” that contained flor de cana rum, lychee juice, hibiscus, and lemon. Although Boston is known for their seafood, I wasn’t blown away by these tacos. I enjoyed them but the drink was the star of the show. The flavor was great and presentation was definitely a 10/10.
If you are looking for a sophisticated, upscale ambiance, Yvonne’s is the Boston hotspot for you. The food I had at Yvonne’s was probably the best that I had in Boston. This restaurant specializes in delicious small plates that each have a unique flare. For dessert I munched on a matcha macaroon ice cream sandwich, that sounds just as mouthwatering and flavorful as it tastes. The entire restaurant is well designed and has an old Hollywood touch. From the dining room to the bathroom, each spot is worthy of Instagram in its own right.
The last Boston food hotspot that I want to share is Roxanne’s. Roxanne’s is a chic cocktail bar located on Beacon Street. If you are interested in having drinks and some snacks, this is a spot you will want to try. The music choice here is great and the drinks are awesome. If you want to chill and have drinks with some friends, this is the perfect place for that. While they do not have a ton of food on the menu, the few that I ordered was very good! Like most of the places I went to in Boston, this one has a trendy, young feel with hip lighting and colorful design.
