Dining Dreams - Restaurants to Experience in 2011

There are some restaurants that have eluded me for one reason or another ... a delayed opening, a difficult location, not enough room in my stomach, etc ... but this year I want to purge the excuses and put my mouth to work. Here's what I plan to conquer:

  1. Temazcal Tequila Cantina ( in the Seaport District at 250 Northern Ave, Boston MA 02210
    • Why: They tempted me with their sleek interior, extensive tequila list and yummy menus ... their reduced-price parking validation at LAZ doesn't hurt either.
  2. Nubar ( in the Harvard Sq. area at the Sheraton Commander Hotel, 16 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138
    • Why: The interior looks sleek and there aren't many upscale options in the area.
  3. 5 Napkin Burger ( in the Copley Plaza at 105 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02199
    • Why: We all know I'm a sucker for a good burger, it's maintained a good reputation in New York, AND where else can you get sushi and a milk shake on the side?
  4. Sportello ( in the Seaport District at 348 Congress Street, Boston, MA 02210
    • Why: Because I love carbs, I love Italian everything, and even though I don't have a huge sweet tooth, I love a good bakery counter ... oh, and I love all of Chef Barbara Lynch's ventures that I've tried.
  5. Deuxave ( in Back Bay at 371 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02115
    • Why: I am a huge supporter of neighborhood gems, and this spot is close to an apartment I used to rent just out of college so it would be nostalgic to visit.
  6. New England Soup Factory ( at 2 Brookline Pl, Brookline, MA 02445
    • Why: I heard that eating here warms your heart and feeds your soul ... they're also famous from-scratch soups that have won Best of Boston multiple times.
Now, who's dining with me?!?
