Boston Restaurant Blog -- June, 2005
Friday, June 10, 2005
Over the past few months, I have gotten so many suggestions on Boston restaurants that should be included on our Boston restaurant guide that we are starting to get a big backlog of dining spots to get to. I don't know when we will get to these restaurants, so I will mention some of them here. And to all of you who have given these suggestions for the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site, I can't thank you enough. Keep them coming!
Here are the restaurants:
Petit Paris Bistro
Scituate Harbor, MA
An intimate and cozy French bistro in Scituate.
Fire Bull Restaurant
A Brazilian rodizio (BBQ restaurant) north of Boston that features a wide variety of meats, as well as fish and pasta, and is open for both lunch and dinner.
Tin Tin Buffet Restaurant
Allston / Brighton, MA
A Chinese buffet restaurant that has a great selection of authentic food at low prices.
A unique little Lebanese restaurant that has entertainment on some nights.
Crawdads North Restaurant
This Cajun restaurant on the North Shore serves everything from catfish to ribs to jambalaya.
A new cafe in Lynn's Central Square, Gulu-Gulu is a place to get a sandwich and a drink, jump on the laptop (they have a free wireless connection), read the afternoon away, and check out works from local artists.
Trattoria Della Nonna
An Italian restaurant that features Calabrian cuisine, featuring a chef who used to work at the terrific Trattoria Pulcinella in Cambridge.
Hot Off The Press Cafe and Bakery
Near the Constitution in the Charlestown Navy Yard, this sandwich shop features delicious pressed sandwiches.
Located near the police station, Emily's is an outstanding Italian restaurant that is so hidden that there is almost no information on the place in books or online. Emily's is one of the best restaurants in Chelsea.
Watertown and Waltham, MA
A pair of quick, friendly, and cheap Greek dining spots west of Boston that have terrific burgers, Greek salads,and many other dishes.
An excellent diner north of Boston on Route 1 that has been around a very long time.
Again, thanks for the suggestions! Sorry I haven't gotten to these places yet.
Crawdad's in Ipswich again. Love that place! [If you're up that way anyway on your way to Crane's Beach you should check it out.] Also the Clam House on the corner of Rt. 133 and Rt. 1A (also on the way to Crane's Beach if you're heading north through Hamilton). Much easier to get your food than the Clam Box, the clams are just as good and (I think) a bit cheaper.
