Fishtail by David Burke | NYC

It’s going to be tough for me to do this restaurant justice in a blog post, but here goes. Fishtail was extraordinary. I’m smiling just thinking about it. It was one of those experiences, that after each bite of food you take, your eyes roll back in your head and you sigh involuntarily because it tastes so good. A little back story — in what may have been one of the coolest things to ever happen to Just Add Cheese, … read more

Food Porn Friday | Go Fish | Ultimate Fried Haddock Sandwich

Go Fish is another great mobile eateriy to come out of Boston’s Food Truck epidemic, and this is their beloved fish sandwich.

Some clues are given about the location in … read more

Four Courses of Fall Inspiration

Here is the dinner that came out of our visit to the Boston Local Food Festival! We went in with no plan, came home with a random assortment of ingredients and created a 4 course fall dinner that consumed the majority of Saturday night. Everyone helped out and played some role in cooking / thinking up the menu. I have no definitive measurements or ingredients because everyone was helping out with everything, so think of this dinner as fall inspiration… … read more
