If eating at restaurants can be considered a sport, then I’m a pro athlete. I love trying new restaurants and returning to old favorites – whether it’s in Boston, around New England, and my travel adventures. Below are a few that I’ve chronicled in this blog. Some of the links below are full restaurant reviews, some are round-ups, and some are just focused on one dish. But all of them are delicious.
