Over Memorial Day weekend we decided to make a last minute road trip to visit on of my best friends Julia to see her and her cute family. We made an effort to map out a few great places to eat along the way and had some really delicious food. It was a highlight since it rained like cats and dogs for most of the weekend. Our first stop was pizza at Frank Pepe’s in New Haven. Robby had heard about this place from a co-worker and it’s supposed to be worth the drive from NYC. They are famous for their clam pizza (which was delicious and very clam-y) but to be honest, we were pleased as punch with their good old fashioned margarita. We also celebrated Ollie’s 11 month mark at this joint!
We couldn’t pass up breakfast at The Paramount in Beacon Hill. It’s clearly a favorite as the line is most often times flooding out the door. We had amazing huevos rancheros and banana caramel pancakes. Definitely worth making a stop if you’re in the neighborhood. (Thanks for the recommendation Julia!)
On Sunday we got lucky and the weather let up just a bit for a trip to Walden Pond and lunch in Concord at the Main Street Market & Cafe. Honestly it was one of those, “the baby is fussy and we all need to eat somewhere NOW” kind of moments. We were pleasantly surprised with the food and I’d highly recommend it for anyone who’s heading to Walden Pond. The little town’s charm made for a great backdrop as well. Such a fun stop on our mini weekend getaway.
We also had super delicious pizza while in Boston at Regina Pizzeria where the Boston accents on the waiters were every bit as authentic as good pizza. It was a really fun weekend getaway complimented by some great eats. All of these had to be somewhat baby/toddler friendly since we had Ollie in tow and it worked out great. If we head back to Boston soon, where else should we put on our “must eat” list?
