Hello my fellow Boston Foodies! There has been a lot of bite size restaurant news this week, here is the run down…
I don’t know about you, but I absolutely LOVE watching Phantom Gourmet! Well, if you’re like me, you will be thrilled to know that the Phantom Gourmet Food Festival is coming to Boston this weekend! Set to be held near Fenway Park from 11am-4pm this Saturday. Check it out…fyi it’s a 21+ event.
Health nuts rejoice- The ban of the use of trans fats in foods at Boston restaurants officially took place this week. Unhealthy fats will no longer be allowed in any of Boston’s dining spots and those restaurants found violating the rule will be fined up to $1000…ouch!
Some say that East Boston is becoming what the North End was a few years back…proof of that theory is the opening of Ecco this week. A brand-new, upscale Italian restaurant located at 107 Porter Street, will feature small plates, large meals, and a diverse beverage menu. If you are familiar with Santarpio’s (and their pizza) you can easily find Ecco within walking distance.
If you’re looking to do something “different” this weekend, why not head over to Tangerino in Charlestown! This whimsical, Moroccan-themed lounge just revealed its $1.6 million expansion including- belly dancers, hookahs, cigar room (don’t worry there is a new state-of-the-art purifying system), and a Marrakech bar for private dining. Grab your magic carpet and head on over.
And last, but certainly not least! We all know that the Mandarin Oriental Boston is booming and the latest in this exciting development was the opening of both restaurants this week! Sel De La Terre and L’Espalier have officially opened their doors at this 800 Boylston St location.
