I'm trying to put together an 8-person birthday dinner for my mother in a couple weeks at the home we'll be renting in Stone Harbor. She has requested lobster -- that is non-negotiable. We need to do something low impact because we have a number of babies in our group. So! I'm looking for recommendations for places that will do cooked lobster, crab cakes, and/or appetizers -- either take-out restaurants or caterers.
Could you all point me in the right direction? Just looking online I see Quahog's Seafood Shack as a potential for lobster, Back Bay Seafood as a potential for crab cakes, and Painted Pie as a potential for appetizers. I know nothing about any of these places. Thoughts on these or suggestions for other places to look at?
I'd really appreciate some help! Thanks so much!
Thanks so much for all the helpful feedback, y'all!
Hello! My husband and I are heading to Portland this weekend for just 1 night. I've done a bunch of research on the Portland board (Many thanks to everyone for their great posts!), and I'm hoping for some feedback on my draft picks.
We're staying at the Nines and will be taking the train down (i.e., won't have a car). We are big walkers, so are happy to walk a few miles to get wherever. And of course, public transport & cabs are an option.
We are planning the trip as a comfy, relaxing getaway, so I'm trying to plan places that will be tasty, walkable, and cozy.
That all said, what do you think of the following:
Friday evening: Paley's Place, Park Kitchen, or Toro Bravo
Saturday morning: Screen Door, other suggestions?
Saturday afternoon: Food carts
Beers: Saraveza, Belmont Station
Chocolate: Cacao, Pastaworks, and City Market
If I missed anything crucial, let me know. Thanks very much for your thoughts!
