Happy Monday! How was the weekend? Mine kicked off with a fabulous event at the beautiful Morton’s restaurant on Boylston St in Boston.
Morton’s subterranean downtown Boston location evokes a classic old Boston and is filled with lovely touches like flowers, bottles of wine, and even some Boston sports memorabilia.
The wine tasting was held in a back room, and there were a variety of great choices from six vendors, Harborside Wine Company, Boston Wine, Ruby Wines, Horizon Beverage, Martignetti, and M.S. Walker.
There was also a delectable spread of food and passed appetizers from Morton’s famed kitchen. I wanted to eat those entire blocks of cheese!
Super fresh veggies, including giant asparagus, were served with Morton’s legendary homemade blue cheese.
Morton’s has some of the best tuna tartare I have ever tasted. I had it just a few weeks ago at their Seaport location, and I literally crave its deliciousness.
In addition to these platters, they also served smoked salmon on toast triangles, mini burger sliders, crab cakes, and giant scallops marinated in a tasty sauce. The scallops were so sweet and meaty. It really was an impressive array of food and really highlighted the way that Morton’s uses only the best ingredients in their food.
There were many wines, and while I won’t write about all of them, I did have a few favorites, and most of them were actually at one table, Boston Wine.

Morton’s holds a variety of events, and I am planning on attending their wine tasting series once the marathon is over. For a complete list, check out this post.
The marathon is a week away, and there is still time to sponsor me and to support The ALLY Foundation by visiting http://firstgiving.com/meghanmalloyteamally
I have not reached my fundraising goal yet, but I am not going to stop until I make it!
