Going to Town: Review of Townsman

Amanda Barone

Often, when we are trying a new restaurant in Boston, we look for something foreign and exotic. But Townsman, located downtown just outside of the theatre district, has taken a step back and looked at traditional New England cuisine. They celebrate the Northeastern United States with thoughtful seasonal menus, locally sourced ingredients, and dishes that will recall your childhood.

Koy Boston

Photos and Words by Fred Chang

Koy Boston is a Korean-fusion restaurant located just off of Quincy Market in the Faneuil Hall area. It is owned by BU School of Hospitality Administration alumni, Caterina Chang, and her father, who is dubbed "Master Chang." Being able to sit down with a fellow Chang in hospitality, specifically the Food & Beverage industry, and talk to her about her experiences and passion for food, it was a very enlightening experience. The concept for Koy, specifically during dinner, is to be a cozy, artistic atmosphere where you can enjoy a fun dinner with your friends, like how I did, or with a loved one on a special date.

Boston Cream Pie at the Omni Parker House

Amanda Barone

I am seated in the oldest-running hotel in the country and it’s dark wood is encasing me from the cold, Boston air. The old-time yellow lamps illuminating the room, and booths and big chairs give it a very “homey” feel. The waiter sets the menu in-front of me and I don’t open the it because I know exactly what I am getting, the Boston Cream Pie. The pie was invented inside the hotel itself by Armenian-French chef, M. Sanzian in 1856, and is a rendition of the early American, “Pudding-Cake Pie.”

PAGU

Katie Fieldhouse

Chef Tracy Chang’s new restaurant, PAGU, located in Cambridge’s Central Square, promises “food, community, and collaboration.” By mixing together Spanish and Japanese cuisine to create an awesome, eclectic menu, it delivers on that promise.

We arrived at PAGU for dinner on a windy Thursday evening. The dining room was dimly lit and buzzing with chatter from its patrons who were enjoying an array of food and expertly crafted cocktails from the bar. The interior is composed of dark woods and black seats to counteract the light walls. Shining brightly through the sleek ambiance stands the open kitchen. Seated at the cherry wood chef’s counter that wraps around the kitchen, we had a front row seat to the action. Throughout our meal, we sat mesmerized as chefs grilled, sauteed, and masterly used chopsticks (to our amazement, as Amanda has yet to master the use of this utensil) to compose beautiful dishes. To our surprise and extreme pleasure, we got to see the mastermind behind PAGU, Chef Chang, at work alongside her team- expediting the dishes emerging from the kitchen.

My mom always told me to never judge a book by its cover. Just because it may look rough does not mean that what is inside won’t be one of the best things you’ve ever read. Hole-in-the-wall restaurants easily apply to this reference.

The Friendly Toast

The Friendly Toast is a cute brunch place in Cambridge a friend recommended to me. My parents were here for Family and Friends Weekend, and I was looking for someplace unique and special where the breakfast was more than just scrambled eggs and bacon.

Sweet Cheeks Brings Southern Kick to Beantown

Fred Chang

Words and Photos by Liam O'Brien

Despite being a melting pot for a diverse range of food options, the city of Boston has long lacked in one major American dietary staple: barbecue. The hallmark food of Southern-style cooking has traditionally failed to make a home for itself among the shivery concrete jungles of Massachusetts, leaving Bostonians yearning for the taste of pulled pork and chicken that thrives below the Mason-Dixon line.

Saus

Words by Josie Ouellette, Photos by Adrienne Sheh

As a huge dipping sauce lover, I never say no to trying a new sauce. Saus, known for its “focus on condiments,” is a small bar/restaurant that uses counter service for food ordering. Initially entering, you are greeted by a dimly lit atmosphere, old-timey music, and chalkboard menus listing all Saus has to offer. The menu ranges from its infamous poutine to sandwiches to waffle sundaes. Of course, there’s also a board entirely dedicated to the Saus’s, well, sauces.

The Salty Pig

Amanda Barone

Words by Amanda DeJesus

Having worked in a Deli for a year and a half, my mouth starts watering whenever someone mentions charcuterie. I am also spoiled having lived outside of San Francisco, home to Molinari Salame and similar incredible companies. That’s why, when my friend called me up to try out The Salty Pig in Back Bay, I hopped on board.

Time to Dig Inn!

Fred Chang

Copley Square is undoubtedly one of Boston's most iconic areas and one of my favorite places to spend my time. Like many students in Boston, spending the day studying at the Boston Public Library provides the perfect respite when campus hotspots become too busy or trite. I always head to the BPL early in the morning to get a jumpstart on work, which means that I always grab breakfast on the way there. Fortunately, the Copley Square and adjacent Newbury Street offer a huge variety of amazing places to eat- trust me, I've tried most of them. But one of my new favorites has to be Dig Inn on Boylston Street.

Bar Mezzana

Bar Mezzana is the place to be right now: it’s on Boston Eater’s “Hottest Restaurants in Boston” for November 2016, as well as Boston Magazine’s “Best New Restaurants in Boston” for 2016. And let me tell you: it deserves it.

Bar Mezzana is located in the South End and offers a warm, inviting atmosphere. Wine is the highlight here: it’s present in the decor, and is showcased all over the room. You can tell that the management takes care in their hospitality. The hostess was able to seat us an hour before our reservation time, our waitress went above and beyond, and the attendants were pleasant and swift.

Gluten-Freeify Me: Salvatore's

Fred Chang

Words by Jonathan Caflun

When you move to a new city, what is the first thing you want to do? Walk through town? Explore? Catch a local sports game? For someone like me, the absolute must is to understand the local food scene. Freshman year at Boston University was exciting. The North End, Back Bay, the Seaport. What exciting places with some great Boston food. The problem was, everywhere I went to eat, I got sick. Was Boston’s food so bad? Was there something wrong with me?

It was the restaurants (I hoped). It turned out that my first year as a college student, going out to eat every single weekend in new restaurants and new foods, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Meaning I am fully allergic to gluten or anything containing gluten, wheat, or barley. This disease effects smaller than 1% of the United States, and I unfortunately had to get stuck with it. I came back to school sophomore year healthier, but with a dilemma. I did not know where to go, what to eat, or how this would change my entire college experience. So if you are like me and have Celiac Disease, are gluten-sensitive, or just interested in Gluten-Free eating for the sake of being interested, I will be here to help. In my series “Gluten-Freeify Me,” I will be doing reviews of Beantown restaurants best associated with favorite gluten-friendly diets for college students, starting with Salvatore's.

Fish Market

Fred Chang

Anyone who knows me knows I never say no to sushi. It’s a cardinal rule I stand by, and one I’ve only regretted at those dingy all-you-can-eat sushi places that end in me on a bathroom floor in fetal position, but it’s the one cuisine I can never tire of. Side note: it’s also probably the one that drains my wallet the most. But hey, it’s so worth it. It was with this cheerful mentality that I embarked on my latest candidate, Fish Market Sushi Bar, to see if it could satisfy me. The restaurant itself isn’t hidden by any stretch of the imagination, but the small storefront can be overlooked if you’re not paying attention.

Wagamama

Words and Photos by Emily Macdonald

Boston is undeniably an incredible city that offers endless possibilities and new experiences for all of its inhabitants. Included among these experiences are all of the unique and different restaurants just a few T stops away from BU’s campus. After moving from England a couple years ago, I often have a hard time adjusting to the lack of my favourite English delicacies and restaurants. Moving to Boston, however, was a blessing for my cravings, as the city offers not one, not two, but three (!) locations of one of my favourite restaurants: Wagamama

Little Donkey: Ri-Donk-ulous Eats

Fred Chang

What do you do when there are more pictures of food than of people on your camera roll? You make a foodstagram, of course. By now you know that The Trio has been reviewing Boston’s best brunches for a while, but did you also know that we’re the faces behind @bitchinbrunch? Well if you didn’t, now is your chance to go and give us a follow!
