We were starving and stumbled upon this place while window shopping. Being on a ketogenic diet, it's sometimes difficult to find a suitable restaurant. The ham and cheese bar was perfect. I only gave four stars because the inside is a little dark and funky....More

I'd heard a lot about it and was a bit disappointed in the end. Service was abrupt and food average. Not sure I will rush back.

If you are in Boston on the 4th of July, what do you do? Only watch the fireworks which start at 10.30 pm? Wrong! Just before that, you should ideally tuck in some snack. We sauntered into this restaurant and started with a cocktail called...More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
