Good Eats Boston: Cusser’s Roast Beef & Seafood

As new fast casual eateries continue to pop up around Boston, i’ve tried to sample each new one. Cusser’s Roast Beef & Seafood is one of Boston’s newest casual, on-the-go lunch spots which includes a take-out window. That’s right, a take out window! The take out window adds a nice old school element to this already fun restaurant.

To celebrate their 3 year anniversary, Chef Michael Serpa will be throwing a fab celebration with colleagues from Myers + Chang, SRV, haley.henry, and pop up sensation, East Boston Oysters. This will be an an amazing evening of roses and rose-friendly dishes. I mean can it really get better than Oysters and Rose?!

Select Oyster Bar was named one of Boston’s best by Improper Bostonian for seafood in 2015 & 2016 and Boston’s Best Raw Bar in 2017. They have also recently been named one of “The 8 Restaurants Making Seafood exciting in Boston by the Robb Report.

Good Eats Boston: by Chloe

If you live in Boston you have probably heard the buzz about by Chloe, a vegan fast casual spot which serves delicious and wholesome plant based food. I recently visited the restaurant for the first time and I am hooked. I am by no means a vegan but I eat plenty of meatless meals so this place is up my alley. You know the place is on fire if a non-vegan like myself is into it. Even the Fiancé gave it a thumbs up.

Good Eats Boston: Grainmaker

Good Eats Boston: Grainmaker

With the fast casual restaurant scene booming in recent years its no surprise that my first good eats boston experience of 2018 is at Grainmaker, a fab fast casual dining spot in Boston. What drew me to the restaurant is their innovative menu with South East Asian influences, which I absolutely love.

The ordering process is like most fast casual spots where you build your bowl. The veggie selection is pretty awesome including delicious string beans, zucchini and my favorite wok fried seasonal greens. I thoroughly enjoyed selecting my garnishes from many choices including a cabbage slaw, fresh cilantro, scallions, pickled veggies and more.  Grainmaker also offers some popular street fare like Banh mi sandwiches and street tacos. There is definitely something for everyone.

Good Eats Boston: Grainmaker

The restaurant is conveniently located in the Boston’s Downtown crossing area and is steps away from major subway stations. I highly recommend this place for your next lunch stop for excellent food flavors and healthy food choices.
