Birthday on south shore

  • 9

First post on chowhound, (so exciting) but I've been a long time lurker. I'm kind of disappointed with the number of posts I've found for the south shore, mostly because there isn't alot, so i decided to finally post.

I'm looking for someplace to go with a few girlfriends for a birthday with some small plates and yummy drinks. We will be dining with a vegetarian, but shes not super picky. The only places that come to mind is Kama lounge in Quincy and Passport in Weymouth. I'm hoping that someone will have some other places for us to check out.

  1. This maybe too far south, but Hola in Marshfield is a lively tapas place that would suit a small group. Besides tapas, they offer a variety of flatbreads including a dessert version. Plenty of veggie options.

      Second Hola. Wonderful foods and great sangria. Lots of vegetarian options provided she eats cheese.

      Keep in mind that it is very small and the patio wont be open for a few more weeks. Thurs thru Sat the place is usually standing room only by 6:30-7:00


    2. You could also consider Tosca in Hingham. Not small plates but they have lots of appetizers to share and the bar is fun. Was there last night with 3 friends and we shared the burrata, the fig and proscuitto pizza and the steak tartare. Lots of veggie options too. The Porcini pizza is excellent.


      1. I'd usually say Marshfield is a little far but flatbreads and sangria may sway us. Tosca looks really delicious too. Thanks for all the great suggestions

        1. Solstice, Pembroke is really good for aspecial occasion. They will give you what you want.

          1. Steel & Rye in Milton is excellent, and would be a fun place to celebrate. They have a snacks menu, and the food is very good in a general. Their menu is posted online, and I would prefer it to the other places you mentioned.

              Good call! Their snack menu is awesome, love the raclette. and they make a great cocktail. Not sure about the veggie options but would be worth a look.

            2. ugh I love you all + thank you for all the great suggestions.

              1. Not sure if you've celebrated or not but here are a few more suggestions that are in the Weymouth-ish area.
                Square cafe in Hingham is consistently good.
                For a better bar scene, Scarlett Oak would serve you well- it's nothing groundbreaking but it's solid food and drinks with an energetic weekend bar that skews to a 30-ish crowd.
                Hola is great but it's off the beaten path and it's a very small space. You really want to hit this over the summer when you can sit on the patio.
                Not a huge fan of the food but Rustic Kitchen and Burton's in the Derby St. are good bar options for a group of ladies.
                Oro in scituate has good food and good drinks with a nice ambiance.
                Writing this post makes me wish we had a few new options in the area.
