        Well, I don't feel too sorry for you because you are located in a VERY chow-worthy city!! Have you tried a Chacarero yet? (I am drooling right now just thinking about it!!)

        SO MUCH great food!!!

        1. re: boisenewbie

          thanks, chacarero is definitely on my list!

          1. re: barleywino

            I forgot to mention to order the combo sandwich - that's my favorite ... also, Maria's bakery in the North End has the BEST everything. I usually have a few dozen chocolate dipped biscotti shipped to me (along with a loaf of bread) ... but since you live there, you got to try the cannolis and the tiramisu!!!


            I better stop before the powers that be on here delete my posts ... got to keep it local. :-)

    2. barleywino- say it 'aint so. I've always enjoyed your learned and precise input. Hopefully you'll still weigh in and every now and then. Good luck in beantown.

      2. I was just thinking about you. I realized that I hadn't seen your around town or the boards. Now I know why! Have fun exploring Boston and let us know when you come back to visit.

        1. re: Lauren

          thanks i will! Tonight i attended a vermouth class where they demo'd making a Carpano Antica replica, among other things, and we got to taste the results-- maybe you can get Jamie Boudreau to start giving classes at Tini Biggs!

          1. re: barleywino

            That'd be great - since we can't get Carpano Antica in Washington!

            1. re: Lauren

              at least you can mail order it TO Washington!...OK i thought of one more missed item: the crispy chicken wings at FuLin in the I.D.
