Kendall Square's Area Four is hitting the streets this Monday with a brand new custom designed food truck. The truck will have a similar sustainable american menu but with a more tightly focused offering. Their featured new menu item, piadini, basically a mobile version of Area Four's famed pizza (flatbread wrap type thing) will be available in four or five rotating varieties for breakfast and lunch.

Taste Trekkers Food Tourism Conference

Posted by Jacki Morisi March 22, 2013 09:15 PM

In September the first ever food tourism conference will be coming to Providence, Rhode Island - but they need your help. Taste Trekkers, organized by Seth Resler (the same guy who brought both Boston and San Francisco the wonderful world of Mystery Meet) has launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for the event. With just a few days left, they still have a bit of a ways to go.

Watch this video to learn more about the weekend event and visit their Kickstarter here if interested in donating.

First Look at Boston Chops, the South End's New Urban Steak Bistro

Posted by Michelle Zippelli March 19, 2013 03:38 PM

Chef Chris Coombs (dBar, Deuxave) is having a very eventful 2013! His third restaurant opened in the South End last week and he was named one of Forbes 30 under 30 in the food category. The new concept, Boston Chops, is an 'Urban Steak Bistro' serving modern versions of steakhouse classics including a variety of offal dishes, raw bar appetizers and homemade sauces.

The former Banq and Ginger Park space on Washington St. hasn't had much success in the past, but Coombs seems to have a knack for turning former flops into instant successes - Deuxave also opened in what was thought to be a jinxed location. On two different trips to Boston Chops, the place has been packed to the brim on both a weekend night and weeknight last week, so it seems to be off to a very successful start.

Here is some of what you can expect from the menu...

A Few Dishes Worth Drooling Over...

Posted by Jacki Morisi March 18, 2013 08:35 AM

There's plenty of them out there. Here's a celebration of some of our favorites in Boston. The sweet, the savory, the overly-indulgent heart stopping, jaw dropping, stomach ache inducing delights that almost make it worth the extra calories.

It may send you straight into cardiac arrest, but it's amazing in taste, texture and stature. The Big Party from Boston Burger Company includes a beef patty, wrapped in bacon, deep fried in beer batter, and topped with mayonaise, ketchup, and a little bit of spicy.

No Boston-based cheese-lovers life is complete without frequent visits to Barbara Lynch's Butcher Shop for some cheese sampling. The rotating specials always offer plenty to be desired. I say skip dinner and go for a varied selection paired with the Steak Tartare and a side of Pickled Vegetables.

Area Four may be a great place to post up and eat pizza, but it's also home to one of my favorite brunch dishes. The Hot Mess, is exactly that! An iron skillet stuffed with potatoes, cheddar, veggies, house sausage, bacon, pepper relish, and two fried eggs.

O Ya is a mecca of mouthwatering food and these Eggs & Legs taste even better than they look.

Ending things on a sweet note with the Tollhouse Cookie Dough Sundae from Will Gilson's Puritan & Company , this blob of tollhouse cookie dough comes dipped in chocolate, served over vanilla ice-cream and topped with a spoonful of maraschino caviar. If there's one place to be sure you save room for dessert, it's this one.
