Table for 1

I'm in Boston for a conference, and I'm having a great time. My hotel is super nice, and I've had time to get some sight seeing and shopping in between and after conference sessions. I'll post pictures from my freedom trail run when I get home, as I forgot to bring my cable with me.

In the mean time, I have been taking pictures of my food. Aren't you lucky? I always enjoy eating by myself, but I have to tell you that after three dinners in a row out and alone I was even more excited to meet a college girlfriend out tonight on Newbury Street to eat at Sonsie! This place has huge French doors out looking onto the street for prime people watching. I

I've eaten at four fun restaurants since I've been here, so I can only imagine that they would be even more fun if you are headed to Boston with friends or a loved one.

On Sunday night I went to Casa Romero and had fantastic Mexican food. It was very authentic and so flavorful. 

My server was so nice, and there wasn't anything that I didn't like. The guacamole in particular was fantastic. I would highly recommend this Back Bay Restaurant. Just be on the lookout if you decide to go, as it was a little hard to find.

Monday night, after my accidental 6.4 mile run (I'll explain later), I wanted a quick bite so I could get back to my room to watch the Bachelorette. I went to Legal Sea Food, which obviously isn't a local Boston establishment. It was yummy, nonetheless.

Wednesday I chased after my love of Food Network and ate at Oishii Boston. The smoking hamachi was featured on The Best Food I Ever Ate, so I wanted to go try it out. It was unique. I like it, and the hamachi being delivered to the table while smoking over coffee beans was visually pleasing. Then, when I put the hamachi in my mouth I could taste the smoking taste. I enjoyed that, two sashimis, and a roll. But, it was so incredibly expensive, and while yummy, I'm not sure it was worth every penny of what I paid.



Tonight at Sonsie was so fun. I enjoyed catching up with Julia so much that I forgot to take pictures. But here's a picture I found online of Sonsie:
We got to sit looking out onto the street, and I enjoyed a salad with a fried goat cheese ball on the side as well as a Wagyu Beef Burger and shoestring fries. Delicious. Between that and the Peach sangria this was definitely a winner for me.

I've done a lot more than just eat here, so I'll post everything else when I get home. I'm headed back to Tampa tomorrow, and while I've thoroughly enjoyed myself here, I'm ready to get back. I miss Tim, my bed, and the feeling of being at home.

Everything looks so good. Don't you hate when you spend a ton of money on something and find it isn't worth it? But at least you got to taste it!

Have a great time in Tampa!
