The Best Damn Breweries in Boston (And What to Drink When You’re There)

The Best Damn Breweries in Boston (And What to Drink When You’re There)

Night Shift Brewing | Night Shift Brewing Boston is an unapologetic beer-drinking town. And not just because brews are crushed night after night while watching the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins dominate the opposition. But it’s also in our history. Since the Pilgrims docked their boats here in the early 17th century, beer has been a vital part of Boston-area culture and lore. As the story goes, the Pilgrims anchored in Plymouth so the ship’s crew would have enough beer on the way back to England. (Even children drank beer — albeit weak ones — when the settlers […]

Former Batali Restaurant Babbo to Close in Boston’s Seaport District

Former Batali Restaurant Babbo to Close in Boston’s Seaport District

A four-year-old Italian restaurant formerly under the direction of celebrity chef Mario Batali will close: Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca (11 Fan Pier Blvd., Seaport District, Boston) is slated for permanent closure on or before September 15, 2019, resulting in 62 staff layoffs. Open since April 2015 , Babbo is a more casual counterpart to New York City’s fine-dining establishment by a similar name (just Babbo, without the “pizzeria e enoteca.”) Its debut in Boston came with much enthusiasm due to the high-profile status of Batali and his then-business partner, Joe Bastianich; it was their first foray into Boston’s restaurant […]

By all accounts, it was a very normal trip, which included one extremely unusual feature: a single In-N-Out burger, wrapped and in photo-ready condition, lying in the middle of Sutphin Boulevard. It was especially unusual given that there is not a single restaurant within a thousand miles of that location that makes the “ Double-Double .” Looking […]

Panini Sante has hung signage on the facade of the building at 1244 Washington St. in the South End, across from Peters Park, and the restaurant’s mostly bare website indicates that it plans to open at that address “very soon.” The business petitioned the City of Boston’s Licensing Board in October 2018 for its common victualler license. The city has posted a sign in the window indicating that a building permit has been issued for the property: The […]
