Wine Girls from Napa looking for good eats and drinks
Coming to town for Boston Wine Expo next week and looking for locals recs for great pubs, restaurants, dive bars, etc. Staying at the harbor but will travel. If you're coming to the tasting, look for the Wine Sisterhood at the Thirsty Girl booth and say hi. Thx!
Troquet: for winelist and good food
Craigie on Main
East Coast Grill
Best Little Restaurant - Chinatown
Head over to Boston's North End for excellent Italian at Prezza, excellent Seafood at Neptune Oyster and excellent Pizza at Regina's.
Welcome. Close by the Wine Expo is a new pub called Barlows at 241 A Street. Fun, and a nice space.
A short cab ride to Myers & Chang, Asian fusion.
Sportello Restaurant on Congress Street is great, though pricey. Owned by local celeb chef Barbara Lynch, and wine list by a female somelier, Cat Silirie. You may want to check out the bar downstairs called Drink.
Lastly, since my Dive Bar days are unfortunately over (way too old) and you are wine lovers, I would recommend stopping by Meritage at the Boston Harbor Hotel. It is on the higher end of the spectrum from Dive Bars, I know, but the chef Daniel Bruce sponsors great wine dinners there. It may be worth swinging by for a glass of wine, and from there, a short cab ride or do-able walk to the North End. The North End area is definitely worth a trip. Ditto prior rec's for Prezza and Pizza at Regina's. I think Regina's ranks up there as a must see while you are in the area.
Based on your post, I think you would also enjoy the bar at Eastern Standard and Craigie (already mentioned).
Would be nice for other CH's to weigh in on some great pubs in the Southie area.
i have lived in boston a few(!!!!) times and often go back to visit...............
i love this place and its kinda centrally located. it has an awesome beer list. and is not to pricey at all
The OTHERSIDE Cafe
407 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02115
also there is a fun place up in brookline called the publick house that has fun eats and a good beerlist as well. plus as its boast "proper glass wear"
1648 Beacon St
Brookline, MA 02445
a fun bar in cambridge that is in no way a diver but has things like pbr in a can and is staffed by regular dive bar attendants and is on mass ave which leads from one end of the city to the other so it makes it an easy place to pop in
and if you go there right around the way is a cambridge staple miracle of science an M.I.T. burger joint
hope these work out for you, i love playing tour guide!
