Eating Well in Boston
I don’t think it’s a big secret that I love to eat good food. I think that it’s an improvement from my previous position of just loving to eat…nearly any food. As I age and grow wiser, I try to make better decisions on how I treat my body and that starts with what I put in it. That said, when I’m at home I follow a strict diet and try to give myself a fighting chance to enjoy my later years. This also has the benefit of make those times when I indulge purely for the joy of taste less detrimental to my overall plan.
I don’t eat out too often, but when I do I’m very selective in where I go and what I eat. I look for places that can present healthy choices (relatively speaking considering how I eat at home) without sacrificing extraordinary taste. Once I find such a place, they gain a loyal customer…and I gain weight (LOL!).
I have decided to showcase my top five favorite places to eat. If you live in the Boston area, treat yourself and check these places out. If you don’t live here but find yourself visiting for a bit, treat yourself and check these places out. I present them in alphabetical order…because that’s just how my OCD works.
1.) Al Wadi Lebanese Restaurant - West Roxbury
2.) Fairmount Grille - Hyde Park
3.) In House Cafe - Allston
4.) Sophia Italian Steakhouse - West Roxbury
5.) Stone Hearth Pizza - Needham
So there you have it…my definitive list of the best places to eat in Boston, and as an added bonus, if you are ever in Arizona…check out the Pita Jungle. My experience at their Arcadia location remains one of the best…ever.
