Wahlburgers, Hingham

Picking up some things at Trader Joes, saw Wahlburgers and said what the heck we'll give it a try. Unfortunately, we didn't realize that Hingham schools were closed because the roofs weren't clear. There had to be 70 children come in with their families and it was loud. The good news, if you are looking for a spot the kids will enjoy this is it. For us, not so much. We were both really happy with our burgers though. The onion rings, however, were a total miss. The red onions just don't have the flavor and the color from the batter was really pale so they didn't even look appetizing. Given that Paul Wahlburg puts so much energy into his restaurants I was really surprised that the onion rings would even make it on the menu.

Does the snow keep you close to home?

I forget about Antonios. Good call, thanks!!

Pharmachick, We're scheduled for MGH on Friday (after 3 cancellations). Scoping out dinner options in case we get stuck. Thinking Scampo or Harvard Gardens.

I absolutely love their cole slaw. I think it's made in house. Burkes has been my go to for seafood for many years. I like that it's a family business and they're always on the premises. Fish and chips are great. Light fry job so no heavy batter. I will say I think their lobster roll is a little stingy so I never order that. Fish is always fresh and they make a nice seafood chowder, as well as, clam chowder. If I pick up a quart I ask for it cold so I can heat it up at home.

Burkes has the best cole slaw. I miss them when they close for vacation. If we ever get shoveled out Port 305 will be a good option for close to home. Wonder how Siros is these days? Haven't been there in ages.

Not a fan of all this snow so I've been cooking at home for the most part. Had to get out to do some errands and happened upon an open parking space in front of Assembly in Quincy. It's lunchtime so why not. It's a pleasant space and was pretty busy with people from local business grabbing a bite. I opted for the short rib with Mac and cheese. It was a huge portion with a generously sized short rib served on top. What a perfect snowy day meal. So how far are you venturing out in this snow?

Tortillas

I haven't been able to find any in he Boston area. I buy mine UNcooked only from Mexgrocer.com and have been quite happy with them. They cook up quickly on a hot griddle.

Asian Bakery Billings Rd, No Quincy

Thanks Kobuta. I live in the area and had noticed it awhile back but didn't realize until today that it was open. My bakery of choice in Quincy is Fratellis but while walking by this place I thought it looked interesting.

Asian Bakery Billings Rd, No Quincy

I noticed this little bakery near OB's breakfast place which I think opened within the last few months. Didn't have time to go in but a quick peak in the window makes me want to give it a try. Looks like a nice seection of sweets. Anyone been, or know the name?

I've been offline for a bit so I didn't see your follow up post. Glad Hamster's recommendation worked out for you!!

In case Tavolo can't accommodate you, I wanted to mention that the function rooms are not the only option at the Common Market Group. They have tables in Cafe DeParis in the lounge area as well as the small dining room there. They do a great job with pizza and I love their chopped salads. You would be able to order off the menu. Also plenty of parking.

September 2014 Openings and Closings

We gave Angelo's a try for lunch today. Very quiet but not surprising for a Monday afternoon. Appetizer of meatballs consisted of 3 good size meatballs in a nice red sauce with 2 triangles of bread. I would say the meatballs were better than most reĊ›taurant versions I've had. The Goodfellow pizza got a bit of a mixed review. The crust was tender and crisp. We enjoyed the sausage and mozzarella but the red sauce was kind of dropped on the top like an afterthought. Caramalized onions were a tad too sweet and there were too many roasted peppers which made the pizza wet. Next time I would order differently on the pizza but would definitely get the meatballs again. The space is very attractive but music could be brought down a notch in the bar area so that you can hear the TVs or have a comfortable conversation. Staff was pleasant and efficient

Onion ring rec

Wow you got me to thinking. It's been awhile since I've seen onion rings on a menu in Boston. Waterfront Cafe in the North End might work. Their food is good although I usually head there for pizza. They do have burgers and onion rings on the menu.

Store search: Coconut or Green Tea Sherbet/Ice Cream

Hannafords in North Quincy has Cape Cod Creamery's coconut ice cream.

Traditional Boston eatery? Need multiple recs

It's been awhile but I always enjoyed the Indian pudding. Last time I was there I ordered coffee jello and boy did that bring back memories. My grandmother always made coffee jello but I've never seen it on a menu anywhere.

Any butchers making Irish bangers, puddings, bacon and such fresh in greater Boston?

I really like the Butcher Shop and they are accommodating. I called one day to see if they had any curry sausages. They didn't but they made some up and I went by later in the day to pick them up.

Grumpy White's...what's going on?

Ahh I didn't realize the son took it over I guess because I saw Bob. The no onion ring thing is annoying and does make a difference when it comes to whether or not I want to dine there. Lobster rolls are easy enough to make at home.

Grumpy White's...what's going on?

Went for lunch today with the plan of getting a lobster roll and a side of onion rings. Anyone who goes know that even though the menu literally says No onion rings they will make them but only as a side order. No substitutions. Rules, rules, rules. Well now there back to NO onion rings and they have taken prime rib off the menu which has a lot of people complaining. I was telling the bartender about this post and she agreed the kitchen can't keep up with the take out orders and it's impacting the in-house diners. With the good weather I guess I'll just skip Grumpys and head to Tonys or the Clam Box. Definitely difficult to figure out Grumpys business plan if in fact they have one.

Grumpy White's...what's going on?

I have never been a big fan of Grumpys but I do like their lobster roll. That said I wouldn't wait 25 minutes to be seated. The service at the tables has always been inattentive so if I want that roll we go during an off time and sit at the bar. At least at the bar you're able to get some attention.

Close to University Medical Center with patient

I like the idea of taking the water taxi so I'll check out the menu at Thames Oyster House. Since tomorrow is Mother's Day and everywhere is apt to be busy we'll probably stay at the hotel. Still trying to convince my husband to go to Black Olive.

Close to University Medical Center with patient

I do keep looking at the Black Olive menu so we may still get there. It's hard because my husband tires easily and doesn't always like to try things We went to La Tasca yesterday and sat on the outside desk. If you can get past the sticky tables the food was enjoyable. We had empanadas; stuffed pasta shells; Jamon Serrano ham and tetilla cheese. Our time was limited today so we went to the restaurant at the Marriott, The Yard or something like that. Had a perfectly acceptable crab Mac and cheese. I miss a good lobster roll that's why I thought maybe Sullivan's and I don't seem to see scallops on many menus. My husband is happy with a hot dog so as dining companions we're not always the best match.

Close to University Medical Center with patient

Looks like we'll be here 2 more weeks and husband is getting around a little more easily. So far it's been the hotel restaurant, Eden West which isn't too bad; Pratt Street Ale House and M&S. My crab stuffed shrimp at M&S wasn't cooked so I sent it back but the refire was quite good.

So now I'm wondering about Rusty Scupper and One-eyed Mikes. I wAnted to try Black Olive but he vetoed it. Thought La Tasca looked interesting. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated as we're pretty limited with activities he can do and at least we can eat out.

Close to University Medical Center with patient

Thank you for all your suggestions. I did see Black Olive and it looked interesting. We are taking taxies or shuttles everywhere but today we just walked to the Pratt Street Ale House so he could get some exercise and we could eat outside. We are staying at the Holiday Inn on Lombard.

Close to University Medical Center with patient

Yes, thank you. I really should have done a search. My husband just had a liver transplant so my head has been on getting meds straight. I'm really curious about Bertha's so hopefully someone will post comments on that.

Close to University Medical Center with patient

Husband just had major surgery at University Maryland Center and is being released to the hotel. We need to stay here 2 weeks and need to eat. So far I've tried Eden West and Pratt Street Ale House. We'll need to cab it everywhere so I was looking at the following options:
Bertha's
Roys ( been to San Diego location)
LP Steamers
Sullivan's Steak House, and
Phillips
Thoughts anyone?

Pregnant mama in search of chocolate-based peanut butter ice cream

Hagan Daz makes a chocolate peanut butter. It's chocolate ice cream with peanutbutter swirls. Had some yesterday - Delish!!

Assaggio North End

My experience is not recent. It's been about a year and a half since I last dined there. I've always liked it and think their rissotto dishes are well done. They have a small bar that always seems to have the neighborhood folks sitting, chatting and dining. Service has always been comfortable never rushed.

Quincy New Pizza Restaurant

We have gone to the Hofbrau for years. However, since earlier attempts to serve food never worked out I wasn't sure what to expect. I have to say I couldn't believe how good the pizza was. Burgers were good too. Gotta love Ellie the bartender and the chef seems like he knows his stuff.

Quincy New Pizza Restaurant

Thanks. I actually checked the city site and missed it. In the meantime I've found a few places in Quincy where I like the pizza; Darcy's, especially their buffalo chicken version; Carmine's for take out; Coops for shrimp scampi pizza and most recently the Hofbrau. One note of caution the Hofbrau is an old local dive bar and the kitchen has limited hours. The pizza though was really good.

Quincy New Pizza Restaurant

I haven't heard anything but I think it would be a good addition. Not great news for School House Pizza though. Didn't read anything about it going to the licensing board either so a bit curious what you have heard.
