Culinary Adventures in Boston

I have been on an eating adventure! Boston has so many amazing restaurants!

Tuesday I got ready to go out for some more shopping with my aunt and wore my other new shoes.

So comfortable!

We went to Stephanie’s restaurant for lunch.

I ordered a glass of wine with my lunch. Why not!?! I’m on vacation!

I ordered a lobster roll for my entree.

It came with fries and cole slaw and rocked my world. I love you lobster roll!

We shopping for awhile and came back to the hotel to chill for a bit before we left for dinner.

We went to Joe’s American Bar & Grill for dinner. I had a salad to start.

And clam chowder in a bread bowl for my entree.

Yesterday’s breakfast was bread with peanut butter. My camera ate the picture….probably because it was boring….you’ve seen it before.

We got ready and headed down to the Warf for lunch. We stopped at Wagamama for lunch.

We all split some chicken dumplings:

And some lettuce wraps:

I ordered their Chili Men with Shrimp:

Unfortunately, it wasn’t very good. It tasted like spaghetti sauce….not at all Asian. Boo! But don’t worry…I made up for it later in the day….

We took a cruise around Boston Harbor….

Then we cruised over to Modern Pastry…..

To sample their famous cannolis!

Oh man. If you want a good cannoli, you need to get yourself over to Modern Pastry.

Someone had recommended Regina Pizza to us so we stopped in.

Good thing my lunch sucked…the pizza didn’t! 

My husband and I scored awesome ticket to the Boston Bruins Playoffs Game 7 Hockey Game so we went on a little date night.

Wine in a plastic cup is classy no matter what anyone tells you.

Wow I need to wash and blow dry my hair. This is what happens when you don’t bring your round brush and blow dyer.

The game went into over time so by the time we got out it was getting late. We took the “T” back to our hotel and the only restaurant open was the Cheesecake Factory.

We split spinach dip:

I ordered the fried shrimp platter:

Then we called it a night. Fun date night! Thanks to my mother in law for watching the kiddos!

This morning I rolled with some granola and milk for breakfast:

I thought about getting a run in at the gym but that didn’t happen. I drank coffee in the hotel room instead. Oh well, I’ll worry about running later.

We took the kids to Boston Commons to ride the swan boats. They are these boats that were built in the 1800’s that have a big white swan on the back. You ride around this little lake in them. The trees are so beautiful in the Boston Commons… was a beautiful sight!

We thought we’d run into the Cheers restaurant (the outside is from the actual Cheers show….the inside was made to look like the set in Hollywood) for lunch. I ordered the turkey burger with onion rings:

It was ok….the food is nothing to write home about. It’s fun to check out the restaurant but I’d recommend eating somewhere else.

After lunch, we went back to Boston Commons for the kids to run around and play. Eventually it started to rain so we made our way back to the hotel.

Tomorrow is our last day in Boston….we head to the airport tomorrow night.

Did you ever watch the show Cheers? I did..I used to love it!

Are you going to watch The Royal Wedding? Nope.
