+1 on the Wine Bottega. Great staff, interesting tastings and they make very good use of the little space they have.

If you're willing to drive to Weymouth you'll be astounded at the selection of imported wines at Curtis Liquors.

Best Whole Foods in Boston Area

The Whole Foods in Dedham roasts most of the Allegro coffee they sell. Each coffee bin is marked with a filled by or roasted by date. The recently discontinued Sumatra Decaf was roasted in-house and was among the best decaf coffee I've ever had and I'm, as my family would say, very picky.

foxboro?

You could go to Davio's at Patriot Place. I like Cafe Della Nonna in Mansfield.

SF Hound visiting Boston, lunch recommendations for Memorial Day?

You can't go wrong with Area 4. I live just south of Boston and have made the drive over there for lunch many times.

Schoolhouse Pizza Quincy - Closed?

I'm surprised that Montilio's never gets mentioned in the Quincy pizza discussions. It's a great place to grab a slice Ernesto's style.

Best of Quincy

That's interesting. I live in the area and a friend who works in the industry told me it was going to be Shenanigans II. I've never been to Shenanigans so I didn't know what to expect. Like C. Hamster said below Murphy's was a reliable place to have a beer while waiting for a take out order from one of the many Asian places in the area. Let's hope that Assembly is a step up.

Craft Beers and Brew Pubs(Is that redundant?)

I'm with you. It's my list favorite on my list but they will often have a thing or two interesting on tap and their food is good.

Craft Beers and Brew Pubs(Is that redundant?)

You can't go wrong with a trip to the Kendall Sq area between Meadhall, Area Four, Lord Hobo and Catalyst there are plenty of options for good food and great craft beer. If your nephew has been paying attention to the Boston scene he'll want to try Lord Hobo for sure.

By coffee by the pound in Boston?

Flatblack in Lower Mills in Dorchester. They roast on premises and have a wide variety. They are very particular about where they get their coffee from.

Ba Le Bakery - beyond the banh mi

What is all of that jerky looking stuff laying around in the middle of the store? It looks good.

Favorite Salads in Boston?

I've only been to Area 4 twice but both times the salads were top notch. Yesterday's chopped salad with green olives and salami was a perfect lunch salad on a hot summer day.

Please critique my itinerary - did LOTS of research - visiting Boston for 5 days and Salem for one of them.

Gulu Gulu Cafe in Salem is a great lunch spot. I recently stopped there for lunch then went to the waterfront.

Caramel Desserts?

The pear crostada with caramel almond ice cream at Rendezvous is very good and caramel is the predominant flavor.

Best Mussels Southside

We ended up going to Fat Head's Saloon. We got the mussels there. They were just OK but the portion size was small. I wouldn't order them again.

Best Restaurants Near University of Pittsburgh

I did the same thing with my daughter last year. We stayed at the Shadyside Marriott. We walked to Sharp Edge for mussels and BRGR for, well, burgers. We enjoyed both places very much.

Wine Dinner?

Any stop at Troquet is better than a good wine dinner but it can get pricey. As someone else mentioned Sal de la Terre has a nice list with food to match. My favorite mix of affordability, good food and a well thought out list is Rendezvous. A Sunday late afternoon fixed priced meal, at the bar, drinking wine from their by the glass list is a little slice of heaven for my wife and I.

Here's an opportunity to find out for yourself. The annual wine tasting bash is tomorrow from 2 to 5 pm. The food and wine is free. They have the lineup posted on their website.

We're dining in Plymouth Saturday night and lo and behold I get a push e-mail from Groupon offering a deal at Sabor. Any recent experiences?

Kendall Square Lunch Options

My wife and I ate at Area 4 for lunch last week and loved it. We had the cremini mushroom/gremolata pizza and the duck confit/lentil appetizer. Both were delicious. I liked the wine on tap options as it allowed us to have 500 ml as opposed to a glass or full bottle. It was a great experience all the way around. I'm glad we got there before the crowds came back.
