All About Boston Restaurants

It’s a city where a 5 year old boy and an 86 year old grandmother will
be wearing the same Boston Red Sox hat on the T and asking the same question each and every morning- how did the Sox do last night? Baseball is not just another sport in Boston, it’s part of the culture…it is Boston. That “Fever Pitch” movie was no joke. Just get used to it and leave your opposing team jerseys at home unless you want to get hit in the head with a bottle. Seriously, especially you Yankees fans.

Boston is a great city that blends its future into its storied Boston
Tea Party past. Walk The Freedom Trail to step back in time for some
Revolutionary history. And then you have the cosmopolitan new
architecture right next to Paul Revere. Think charming New England
with those lovely brownstones.

Faneuil Hall is a must. Explore the North End for “to die for” Italian…
just like grandma makes.

Here are our journeyPod picks for your viewing pleasure:


1. Anna’s Taqueria: Yes, there is always a line out the door, but it
is well worth the short wait. Stick with their world famous Chicken,
Pork, or Beef Burrito. Anna’s has become a Boston icon, and has two
locations:in Brookline and in Cambridge.

2. Red Bones: Barbecue in the North must have been created here. Great selection of every style of ribs. Fantastic beer menu as well. Walk in very hungry. Red Bones is located in Cambridge.

3. Ginza: The best Sushi in Boston. If you are hungry, try ordering
the full Boat. You will float out of there. The staff and SAKE are
fantastic. Ginza is located next to the St. Mary’s stop in Brookline.

4. Fiore: There is simply not enough room on this list to mention all
of the North End Italian Restaurants, so we picked one of our favorites, Fiore. If you have never been to Italy, the North End is the next best thing. A walk down Hanover Street is like a moment in Italy.

5. Tasca:The best Spanish Tapas restaurant in Boston. Fantastic
Sangria and a huge selection of tasty Tapas. Located in Brighton on
Commonwealth Ave.

6. Sunset Grill:Menu is very diverse with something for everyone. If
you have room, you must order the Mud Slide Pie for dessert. For the
Beer Fanatic, Sunset has the most beers on tap or in the bottle in all
of Boston. They must just have every beer ever made. Located in
Allston on Brighton Ave.

7. Figs: When he is not cooking for the TV audiences, our boy Todd
English turns out a nice thin crust pizza. There are only 13 tables in
Figs, so be prepared to wait. Figs is located Beacon Hill, Boston, and

8. JP Licks: Keeping with the dessert theme, JP Licks has some of the best home made ice cream (and yogurt) on the planet. We highly
recommend the Peanut Butter low fat yogurt. JP Licks is located in
Coolidge Corner in Brookline, Jamaica Plain, and Newbury Street.

9. Mike’s Pastries: No trip is complete without a stop for Mike’s
famous canoli. They should put Mike’s on the Freedom Trail it has become so popular. Again, there is always a line for late night dessert, but it moves quickly and is worth it. Mike’s is the perfect finish after you have stuffed yourself in the North End.

10. Davios: High end Italian American food. The menu is very
diverse, and we highly recommend their steak or seafood. Located on Arlington Ave.
