Best Italian sub in Boston Financial District ... EVER

I'll second Al's Sate Street.
They have a place on South Street also.
CocoDan, make your way over to Scola's on Black Falcon Pier for one of those great Charlestown's.

Circle Pizza ?

Closed for years. Had a very loyal following and was on a par with the Regina,
I believe it was owned by North Ender, Billy DeMarco.

Sabrett's Hot Dogs availability

If you can get into Restaurant Depot, or know someone who can, they stock Sabrett's dogs.

Best Chocolate Cake, Gregg's Restaurant in Providence. (worth the drive)

When I have a craving for a chocolate cake I drive down to Providence to a restaurant called Gregg's. They also have a bakery section. The cakes are reasonably priced.
They have the best chocolate cakes and lemon cakes I have ever had. Their eclairs are huge and awesome, also.
They are located at 1303 North Main Street, Providence, RI.

The Butcher Shop, Dorchester

Any sausage maker worth his or her salt, no matter where they live or come from would know andouille or boudin sausage.
They don't necessarily have to like or eat them, but they will know about them and how to make them.
imho, Boudin sausage would not be a big seller in this part of the country. I made 15 lbs of Boudin about 3 weeks ago, and not many people liked them.

Sausage Casings?

Stop and Shop has been carrying them.
Lord Jeff's at Newmarket also has them at half the price of Stop and Shop. The same brand name also.

Best North End Pizza for lunch with kids

I'd agree with Regina, but a close second (imho) is the Pushcart on Salem St.

Designer Donuts? - moved from Boston board

After watching Chronicle the other night, I took a ride to West Roxbury to try out the donut shop they touted, Anna's Hand Cut Donuts.
The donuts were very light, but tasteless and worse than that, the price for a dozen was outrageous. $12 for a dozen. The donut places I place on a much higher scale (Kane's, Donuts with a Difference, Verna's) are not even close to this price.

Pickling salt

Walmart carries it.
And, I'm pretty sure you could use kosher salt, but you would have to grind the kosher salt down, due to the much bigger flakes and it doesn't disolve as well when it's not gound down to a fine particle.

Grumpy White's in Quincy

Made a trip back here for lunch after an absence on my part of a couple of years.
Got some onion rings (hand cut) and a double cheeseburger.
Probably the best cheeseburger I've had in a while.

Boston area's Best Donuts

I've mentioned the donuts at this place many times and I never get any opinions.
Try Doughboy Donuts on Dorchester Ave near A St.
It's across the street from the MBTA train and bus yards.
Much better than Donuts With A Difference and Demets.
Betty Ann's donuts are very good, but also very different from what you usually get at most donut places.
