As you may have noticed by now, this blog follows a format:
Monday: Reviews of chain restaurants, catering, or food trucks.
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday, or other special Tuesday series.
Wednesday: Full service restaurant reviews.
Thursday: Reviews of bakeries or ice cream shops.
Friday: Packaged snack foods or drinks.
Saturday: Day off!
Sunday: Chocolate, or other candy.
When I review restaurants, they are almost entirely located in the San Francisco Bay Area, since that is where I live, and I assume most of my friends who read this do as well. I never saw a point in reviewing places outside the region, since I didn't think they'd be valuable to any of my readers.
There have been a few exceptions, like when I've been blown away by meals, like my lunch at Republic Cafe in Manchester, New Hampshire, or an entire series I did on my favorite place in my home town, Home Hill Inn.
But I recently traveled to Boston, and had some absolutely extraordinary dining experiences. Some of the best meals of my year. I feel compelled to share them. I also had some of the worst. And, some fun airline food.
For the next few Tuesdays, I will begin a new "Travelin' Tuesdays" series. We'll start with the snacks in the American Airlines Admiral's Club, and then move on to inflight dining: Main Cabin food aboard Virgin America, First Class food aboard American Airlines, and First Class on Virgin America. We'll visit classic east coast establishments like Legal Seafood and Lou's Restaurant, hit some high points like Clio (top meal of the year!) and O Ya in Boston, and some lows like The Flying Goose in New Hampshire, and conclude with delicious airline meals. And a few more fun ones along the way, like glazed cruller bread pudding with eggnog whipped cream at Lou's.
So stay tuned dear readers, it is time to travel!
