Boston Restaurant Blog -- July, 2006
Saturday, July 1, 2006
Once again, I stray a bit from restaurant talk, but only because I am gearing up for a road trip where I will be seeking out several classic roadside restaurants over the July 4 weekend, so I am taking a break from food right now.
Anyway, with July 4 approaching, summer is in full swing in the Boston area. This time of year, there aren't many places in the country that are better spots to be in than New England. From ice cream, fried clams, and beach blankets on the Cape to scenic hikes in the White Mountains to long, lazy drives through the back roads of Vermont to searches for lobster pounds on the Maine coast to evening strolls through Newport or Providence, there is definitely something for everyone in this part of the country. As much as I love San Diego, San Francisco, New York City (the Yankees not included, of course), and Washington, DC, I don't think I'd want to be anywhere else other than Boston, especially this time of year.
If I weren't holding off on hitting restaurants right now, tonight would be a perfect night to go to any number of fun, outdoor dining spots, including Kelly's at Revere Beach, Tony's Clam Shop in Quincy, Sal's Pizza in Lawrence, or Eastern Pier II down on the waterfront. But I'll be good tonight; come Monday or Tuesday, though, I will be reporting back on what I hope will be some of the best classic summertime dining spots in New England. Stay tuned, as it should be interesting to say the least!
