secret south shore gems

  • f

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!

  1. Welcome jennifer,

    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.

      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.

      1. Not so secret but do not miss, Sapporito's in Hull. Great atmosphere,fabulous and interesting food. Nice owner/chefs have kept the place packed for years.

        1. 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

          1. Camilla's just off Exit 9 in Kingston is wonderful. Great Italian food. Never been disappointed in anything from meat to fish to pasta.
