New England Fish Chowdah Made by people from New England [moved from Boston board]

I sautee onions and red peppers, just a little flour and cook the potatoes in milk with a bay leaf, add the milk to the onion/flour mix and cook the fish until just done. Lets the ingredients shine through.

September 2014 Openings and Closings

FP/Kennedy's also owns a couple Mick Morgans, Kenedy's in Norwood and Tommy Doyles in Newton, not Harvard Square.

Silly debate going on... What was the People's Republic in Cambridge called before...

It was Drumlins at least as far back as the early 80's.

Best foods of certain genres

I'll start with these which are all walkable.
Top Italian Seafood choices: Neptune Seafood and Daily Catch

Desserts/Baked goods: Is the place where the Boston Cream Pie was created worth it? I believe its called Porter House or something someone told me. Invented at the (Omni) Parker House Hotel. Unless you are staying there or have a business meeting, don't bother.

Burgers: This is my favorite type of food.

Pizza: Any that would catch my attention? I live in Chicago though. The ORIGINAL Reginas on Thatcher street.



Mexican: Eat it in Chicago.

Where to Buy Rennet?

Debra's Gourmet in West Concord has had it in the past.

the knack- Orleans Ma

I must go there with mmmy Sharona.

Onion ring rec

The Drinking Fountain.

Speakeasy - Boston

Wink n Nod in the South End has a speakeasy atmosphere as well.

Anybody know where to get headcheese in Greater Boston

Bazaar West in Framingham also. Tongue head cheese and well, just head cheese.

October 2014 Openings and Closings

Yeah, but Buzzy's was OPEN.

Onion rings at what can only be called a truly unknown location...

Say hi to Peggy behind the bar.

October 2014 Openings and Closings

The Magic Oven, Fornaio Magico, a Jim Leff favorite has re-opened in Framingham after being closed for some months. The Staion Diner across may open in November or so judging by the work being done.


Is it open yet?

Fresh grape juice for making wine??


Big E: 2014 food finds


Sourdough starter bagels - like Bagelsaurus, 158 Pickett Street, Scratch


Update on Worcester, MA area please!

I ate at Volturno last week. Bone marrow, delicious and rich. Italian sub, good quality meats, too much rosemary ham, not enough salami. Pizza crust outstanding. We had mushroom and goat cheese. Nice craft beer selection.

Backyard Pig Roast

BT's Smokehouse

New Post: What's Good in Dedham

I'll give Santoro's on Bridge St a shout out for Italian subs, and Centre Deli on High for Eggplant Parm. I've had other sandwiches at Centre Deli that were very good as well.
I'll agree about Al Wadi, but West on Centre was very uninspired.

Unpasteurized Apple Cider MetroWest now that Phil's has gone away?

One stack farm in Stow.

Best Steak & Cheese in MetroWest?

Carl's Waltham/TC Landos multiple locations make the best steak and cheese subs, Boston style in the area.
Yes, it's thin sliced and griddled. Moist with nice flavor.

Anybody sell REAL double cream?

Just started watching "The Wire" - Lake Trout sandwiches?


Best banh mi in Chinatown 2014

Mei Sum jalapenos are definately fresh, not canned. Bird chilis may be a little hot.

Peruvian in Medfield

I went by a couple times when they weren't open but no menu in the window and they have no internet presence.
Were they busy?

Local trash fish

In the past I have bought scup at Roslindale Fish Market. Everything he sells is very fresh.

Dear New York: San Francisco's Haute Dog Will Crush Your Cronuts

trying to remember a pizza place

Was that space a French restaurant back in the 70's, early 80's?

$1000 mandatory minimum bill for a large group?

I'd give Church a call. They are far enough off the path you could get decent food and drinks for much less.
