Today, Luke and I went on a holiday photography stroll throughout Boston! Although we differ in camera preferences (no Nikons for this girl), we had a great day taking pictures of everything and anything that caught our eye on our trek to Faneuil Hall! This picture of the holiday ornaments hanging in the Pru is one of my favorites of the day :) To my fellow Bostonian photographers, what is your favorite spot to take shots during the holiday season around the city?
After a beautiful sunset on the Wharf, we headed over to North 26 for dinner...and warmth! I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting that great of a meal. This morning, I was struggling to find even one place with an available reservation tonight since the area was going to be so crowded for the tree lighting. Thanks to North 26, however, I got a reservation and what turned out to be a great meal!
I ordered the organic roasted chicken breast, which was served with baby brussels sprouts (so cute!), green beans, and a mushroom sauce. Right after I ordered, the waiter asked if it was okay that the chicken would take 30 minutes to fully roast. Of course that was okay with me!! I will wait any length of time for good food! I hope this picture is enough to make your mouth water...and to try North 26 next time you visit the Faneuil Hall area! 

Please feel free to comment you fav restaurants around the Boston area for me to check out! They will be much appreciated :)

This weekend, Luke and I crossed Back Bay Harry's off our "must-try" list, and added it to the top of our "favorites" list! What made it stand out so much in our minds? Well, besides the friendly staff, cozy atmosphere, and delicious food, BBHs somehow made the streaming of Lady Gaga's new album seem...elegant? We're not completely sure how they pulled this off or why she was the artist of the night, but we were very okay with it. 
So yeah, the food didn't suck either. I ordered the grilled swordfish with maple-roasted brussels sprouts and carrot puree. If you can't tell from this picture, it was probably the best swordfish I've eaten in a while. Or ever. Either way, if you're near Copley Square give Back Bay Harry's a try because I fear this blog post is doing them very little justice! Go for the food, stay for the Lady Gaga! If you do get the chance to go to BBH's or you've gone before, what did you think?!

First post on the blog comes after dining at Church with my partner in food-discovery crime, Luke! Didn't think to take a picture of my meal, which was a delicious roasted salmon served over my favorite pasta substitute, spaghetti squash! It was definitely a unique and comfortable restaurant...and it doubles as a club with live music every night. Next time you're near Fenway, check this place out for sure!
Church Restaurant and Music Club

They gave us this cute/possibly sacrilegious post card with our check! I'm sort of in love with it... no shame!
