Happy weekend! My family is here and we got the weekend started with a great dinner, which I will post about later. This morning was an absolutely picturesque, gorgeous summer morning. It was cool, with bright sunshine and blue skies, and I decided to take some photos of my walk in to work.
The first half of the walk is super ugly. I go down a main road past warehouses and then past Boston Medical Center, a pretty shady area. But then I get into the South End, and all of that is forgotten. This morning I decided to stop at Flour bakery, one of my favorites in all of Boston. I bought a homemade raspberry seltzer and a lemon-ginger scone. Sooo delicious! I have had the seltzer before, but the scone was new to me, and it was amazing. It had many pieces of fresh ginger throughout with a lemony glaze. It was the perfect Friday morning treat.
I took my time walking through the South End this morning, taking in all of the sights that I sometimes breeze past in a total rush.
I loooooove Picco. Pizza, ice cream, yes please! They even do beer and ice cream floats, which I have yet to try, but I can bet are delish!
B & G Oyster is a pretty fancy subterranean oyster bar with a great wine selection and a kickin lobster roll!
The photos above are just a sampling of the fabulous restaurants I pass in the South End every day. It is often difficult to pass by people who have time to sit outside for breakfast and coffee, and on my way home it is often impossible to not stop for a cocktail and an appetizer somewhere! If you get to Boston, the South End is the must visit place for foodies.
I am quite sleepy after running around with my niece all evening, and I am looking forward to a big day tomorrow. I will definitely be posting about tonight’s dinner and all of tomorrow’s fun, so check back in for updates. Have a great Friday night!
