Boston Travel Guide Part Two: The Food

If you didn't catch part one of my Boston travel guide, check it out HERE! I had to make a "Part Two" of the travel guide to talk about all of the amazing food we experienced in Boston! Some places were recommended and some we stumbled upon while wandering around. All are highly recommend!

Love, Christina

1. Tatte
This trendy breakfast/lunch/brunch spot was one of the cutest and yummiest places I have visited. With a few locations around the city, Tatte is a popular spot for your dose of avo toast, a picturesque latte, or baked goods galore. I can also not get enough of the mini hexagon tiles, brass light fixtures, or their fresh eucalyptus center pieces.We loved this place so much we ate here twice!

2. Union Oyster House
Claiming to be "the oldest restaurant in America" this popular spot did not disappoint. Home to various types of oysters, warm hearty clam chowder, and a one-of-a-kind Samual Adams brew. It was also named one of Conde Nast's "Best Restaurants in Boston" for 2018!

3. Quincey Market
This food hall is a must see when visiting Boston! The all granite building dates back to 1826 and now holds a vast variety of eats and shops! I highly recommend the lobster roll! Worth the splurge!

4. Lucca
Boston's North End neighborhood is home to Freedom Trail history, local bars, and some of America's best Italian eateries! We ate at Lucca, and loved everything from the dimly lit romantic atmosphere to the homemade Bolognese sauce. We heard from many locals that you can't go wrong with any Itialian restaurants in this neighborhood, but we loved our dinner at Lucca!

5. Georgetown Cupcake on Newbury Street
I was familiar with Georgetown cupcake from the hit TLC show "DC Cupcakes" as well as the location in New York's SoHo neighborhood. Their cupcakes are superior to any cupcake shop I have ever tried. With many different varieties and seasonal selections, I highly recommend making this spot a priority if you are in NYC, Boston, DC, Bethesda, Atlanta, or LA. (I recommend the red velvet, pumpkin cheese cake, or carrot cake!) I may or may not have brought two home as well; yep... they sat on my lap on the plane ride home...

6. Met Back Bay
I love when you stumble upon restaurants that turn out to be incredible! We were walking in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood one morning looking for a hearty brunch place and we read the menu at Met Back Bay and decided to give it a try! This spot was incredible! The decor was modern, the staff was very friendly, and the food was top notch! (Side note: I was also obsessed with their bathroom tile!)

7. Mike's Pastry Shop
I was a bit skeptical about this touristy bakery with the long lines, and big reputation, but Mike's Pastry shop was the perfect sweet to finish off a wonderful dinner in Boston's North End neighborhood. I love cannolies and the northern states do them right: Not too sweet and a homemade shell that can not be replicated. Worth the wait in line, but I think any local bakery would be as well!
