This is Your Dining Out Guide For New England
Shack, Cambridge, Mass.
Welcome to your New England dining out
guide, presented to
you by "the locals." At Visiting New England, we
just don't write
dining reviews, we live and breathe the part as lifelong New England
residents constantly looking for the best New England restaurants for
our families and friends. The results are passed along to you, gaining
an "inside track" on what places New Englanders hold dearest to their
hearts. Our dining section, for years, has appealed to the New England
traveler, as well as the native New Englander looking for great New
England clam chowder, lobster and "cheap eats" appealing to families
and college students looking for affordable restaurants. Additionally,
we feature hidden gems, fine dining, charming New England restaurants,
romantic New England dining, Boston restaurant recommendations and the
latest "scoop" on terrific ice cream stands.
An eternal appetite tempered with enthusiasm, humor and lively writing
in a fair and balanced style creates a dining guide that is the next
best thing to being there.
Without further ado, please enjoy the restaurant and food destination
articles below. Please note that while our web site is being remodeled,
the paging format might look different page to page, but all the
articles maintain the same high quality and commitment to helping you
find some great dining out destinations in New England!
