Fork & Tune: Musical Pop-Up Dining in Brighton

Posted by Jacki Morisi July 29, 2013 03:54 PM

The newest pop-up dinner series to hit Boston, Fork & Tune is a multi-course, communal dining experience that fuses musical inspiration and seasonal ingredients. The idea comes from the creative minds of Jessica Brown & Dana Briley, co-owners & master bakers of Treats on Washington – which is where the events are held every Sunday. Throughout the evening the dinner is prepared in front of guests, and they are encouraged to chat with the chefs throughout the evening.

This summer you can enjoy listening to Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder while swooning over a menu that reflects the celebratory, light and colorful feel of the album. Each course is carefully created and connected to the songs playing while the dish is being served. Seating is limited and tickets for the dinner are available on Eventbrite for $78. Here’s what to expect over the next few weeks, and keep an eye out for a new album and menu come fall!

Giulia Masters Seasonal Snacks

Posted by Jacki Morisi July 23, 2013 03:44 PM

Ever since opening several months ago, Giulia in Porter Square has been receiving praise for it's homemade pastas and seasonal menu. From carefully crafted cocktails to flavorful snacks, it's not only a yummy place for dinner but a great place to stop for a casual drink. Two of my favorite dishes of the moment:

Photos: Friday Lunch at Lincoln Southie

Posted by Michelle Zippelli July 19, 2013 07:49 PM

Lincoln has given Southie residents yet another reason to make it their go-to for just about any occasion - Friday lunch. Or Friday funday, however you want to spin it. Starting in June, Lincoln has been open at 11am and stays open throughout the entire day on Fridays. With plenty of options for salads, pizza, sandwiches, beers and cocktails I can think of no better refuge from this ridiculous heat wave. Highlights from lunch were the burrata and the pizza. Note: don't go to Lincoln and not get pizza.
