secret south shore gems
hi - i'm a food writer outside of boston and am putting together a piece about little known south shore restaurants with great food. not just the usual chowder and baked/stuffed fare served up by coastal inns, but unusual food. i'm especially interested in new spots opened by established chefs - either from Boston or elsewhere - and restaurants opened by new immigrants to the area.
thanks for your help everyone - and eat well!
La Palomas in Quincy for mexican
Strawbery Fair in Norwell for light fare
Mount Blue in Norwell for fusion/new american, and cool atmosphere
Vin and Eddies in Abington for Italian
Christo's in Brockton for greek/american
Venitian in Weymouth for Italian
Tosca in Hingham for New American
Back Eddy, in Westport, the project of Chris Schlesinger (formerly of East Coast Grill). Amazing, fresh seafood, a panache for spices, homemade pickled condiments, and a blend of traditional and inventive preparations. Not to mention a lovely location on an eddy near Horseneck Beach.
I guess we are all looking for new ideas.
As a newby, and a food writer to boot, how about giving us a little input?
What have you found?
If you have nothing to share, why not try a search of the site for ideas.
I had hoped the info-flow might actually work the other way. But, OK. Keep us posted.
BTW, the Globe and Herald are wonderful resources for "food writers outside of (B)oston". They are local newspapers.
