Hello! This past week I went to Boston with University of Florida’s Ad Society for four days. It was a networking trip so I didn’t have much time to be a tourist, but I did have amazing food in the beautiful city. So here is where and what I ate in Boston, Massachusetts. PSA: Make reservations!! Everywhere in Boston is packed, especially on a weekend so be sure to make reservations before you go anywhere for dinner. If you don’t, expect at least an hour wait.
This restaurant is located in North End, in the Little Italy of Boston. I ordered the Vodka Classic ($14.95) which has vodka sauce, fresh basil, prosciutto, and mozzarella cheese. It was, honestly, one of the BEST pizzas I have ever had. The prosciutto with the vodka sauce tasted so good. I enjoyed every single bite and would definitely go back to order the same thing. Don’t even bother looking at the menu if you go, just order the Vodka Classic. You will not be disappointed and it will be worth every penny.

Tatte Bakery and Cafe
This cute breakfast cafe was amazing. The dishes are a bit pricey, but worth it. We went around 9 am and it was pretty busy. I ordered the Avocado Tartine ($10). The dish looked like a masterpiece, I almost didn’t want to eat it. It tasted even better than it looked. All the flavors of the avocado, egg, arugula, dill, and reddish went so well together. It will definitely fill you up and will have you wanting to come back for more. Seriously, you MUST have breakfast here at least once while you’re in town. The menu is filled with delicious goodies you’ll want to order one of everything.

We came to Code for dinner because it was the only restaurant in the area that didn’t have a wait. We thought that was discouraging, but we were proven wrong. This restaurant was fantastic and had a cool vibe to it. The dishes are pricey so be aware of that. I ordered two dishes from the appetizer menu, a cup of the Tomato Soup ($6) and the Crab Rangoon ($12). The soup came with a very small grilled cheese sandwich. The soup was tasty, but it was the Rangoon that blew me away. The crab was so fresh and delicious and when you dip it in the plum sauce it tastes even better. I wish I would have ordered two Crab Rangoons. That is how amazing they were.

“Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name!” If you have never watched this show, please stop reading. Just kidding! No seriously, go watch it if you haven’t. It’s on Netflix. It is such a classic show from the 80s. If you love “How I Met Your Mother” you’ll love “Cheers.” Anyway, this restaurant/bar was the bar that inspired the creators of “Cheers.” The entire place is like a museum for the show. There is memorabilia and pictures of the cast. The menu is even dedicated to the show. I ordered the Fenway Special ($9.99). A little basic, I know. It was really good though. I don’t eat hot dogs very often, but these were delicious. My friend, David, ordered the Giant Norm Burger ($21.99). It looks like a monster. I really don’t know how he finished the entire thing. He did enjoy every bite though.

We found this restaurant after visiting five other restaurants that had long wait times. This was another place that had us hesitant with the lack of people in their restaurant, but again we were very satisfied. It’s a small restaurant in South Boston and it has a very diverse menu. I ordered the BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad ($15). The waitress recommended it and she said it was one of the most popular items on the menu. Well, I found out why! The salad was outstanding. It’s a large dish so be advised. I wasn’t expecting it to be as big as it was. So don’t be afraid to order it if you’re starving, it’ll definitely fill you up.

Last food stop on our trip was the famous Mike’s Pastry. The minute you walk in you can already smell the deliciousness of the cannolis. There are so many different menu options you won’t know what to choose. I ended up going with the Hazelnut Cannoli ($4). It was to DIE for. I was so happy with my decision and savored every single bite of that cannoli. I remember wishing I wasn’t so full so I could have finished it.
