Get the Scoop from Boston Restaurant Talk!

A short time after we started Boston's Hidden Restaurants, we also began a blog called Boston Restaurant Talk. Initially, this blog covered a variety of topics, but over the past couple of years it has become more of a news-based site centering around happenings within the Boston restaurant scene.

Today, Boston Restaurant Talk has become one of the biggest sources of local restaurant news in New England, and the blog is currently on pace to attract at least a half million viewers over the next year. We will continue to find news stories to post over the coming days, weeks, and months, so check back frequently as the blog is updated on a regular basis!

This Issue's Feature

Romantic Restaurants

Valentine's Day is still a ways away, but it seems that anytime is a good time for a night out at a romantic restaurant. So what we have done on Boston's Hidden Restaurants is to compile a list of restaurants in the Boston area and elsewhere in New England that seem perfect for a nice, quiet dinner with that special someone.

Included on our Romantic Restaurants page are brief descriptions of the dining spots as well as addresses and phone numbers of the places. And they run the gamut from casual places to historic spots to sleek and upscale restaurants, so there should be something for everyone here!
