There’s no denying that Boston has lots of delicious restaurants: Tavern Road, The Salty Pig and Bostonia Public House are a few of our personal faves, but on any given day, you’ll most likely find us at a local Brookline establishment grabbing lunch, celebrating a birthday or having a holiday party. Whatever the occasion, there’s always a delicious option right around the corner. We’ve highlighted a few of our favorites below:
Dozens of talented chefs took over Fenway Park last night for Boston Bites Back, a charity event held exactly one month after the Boston Marathon bombings to raise money for the One Fund. As the first food-related event Fenway has ever hosted, Boston Bites Back was a huge success (and then some). The BIGfish team was among the nearly 5,000 attendees who spent the evening exploring Fenway and enjoying delicious bites from more than 90 Boston-area restaurants.Tavern Road’s lamb pâté to Blue Ribbon’s North Carolina BBQ and Blue Dragon octopus with Ma La Oil, we had two clear favorites: Clio’s ice cream sandwiches made of rich chocolate cookies and honey butter ice cream, and Mandarin Oriental’s fried artichokes with parmesan cheese. Still searching for the recipes for those two...
But the best part of Boston Bites Back wasn’t the food, the drinks or even the chance to experience Fenway like never before. The most enjoyable aspect of the evening was simply celebrating the Boston community and reveling in how the city has truly come together over the past month. A big thank you to Boston Bites Back for putting on a great event that let our city’s spirit shine - #BostonStrong.
