Best Places to Eat in Boston, Massachusetts (I)
Best Places to Eat in Boston, Massachusetts: Algiers Coffee House – Euro-style lingering
Unpack your novel, order a Turkish coffee and settle into a tightly packed table on the rooftop patio. Or cozy up to your sweetheart on the second floor, sharing a cup of mint tea. Enjoy live music and Mediterranean cuisine, while Harvard students study around you.
Best Places to Eat in Boston, Massachusetts: Amrheins – Old school delight
Located in gentrifying South Boston, Amrheins has been serving top-notch fare since 1890. (Ok, well, I can't confirm that it's been good since the day it opened 1890 — but it's been good in the recent past, since I've been alive).
The menu is loaded with fresh seafood, and the creamy Lobster Mac and Cheese is a crowd-pleaser. The latter is so rich – with Maine lobster, peas and pancetta in a smooth three cheese sauce and topped with buttered crumbs – and so generous that a half serving is plenty. Even when you are sharing. The pumpkin risotto, elaborate Sunday Brunch, pleasant patio and free parking keep diners returning meal after meal. While you’re there, check out the hand-carved bar – it’s the oldest in America.
Best Places to Eat in Boston, Massachusetts: Aquintaine – A Parisian Neighborhood bistro
Aquitaine's top notch menu offers classic French cuisine and fusion dishes. Service is attentive, prompt and friendly; décor is upscale, with a romantic-sexy-date-night kind of vibe. For dinner try the filet au poivre — well worth the price — followed by delicious bread pudding or the chocolate mousse.
Looking for a romantic Sunday breakfast for two (or three)? Then look no further for outstanding eggs benedicts, creamy omelets, fluffy French toast, and satisfying Belgian waffles. Top it off with a glass of Champagne.
The small bar is a great place to nosh, pal around, and imbibe.
