The Boston food scene is pretty awesome. Anything you’re craving, we got it.

Travel blogger Meaghan Murray shares a review of Nautilus Pier 4 in Boston, MA on her blog The Stopover

Nautilus Pier 4

300 Pier 4 Blvd.
Boston, MA 02210

The Asian-inspired seafood forward restaurant is a new favorite in Boston. Nautilus’ first location is on my favorite island off the coast of Massachusetts (Nantucket) so I’m thrilled that they’ve brought their delicious menu to the city. You really can’t lose with anything on their menu. Their cocktail program is on point, their wine list is outstanding, and their food is consistently impressive.

Grey's Hall Boston MA

Gray’s Hall

615 E Broadway
Boston, MA 02127

Gray’s Hall is one of my favorite spots in Boston. A casual restaurant with an excellent wine list, Gray’s will never leave you disappointed. Their chips, dip, and caviar are *chef’s kiss.* Throw in a bottle and a burger, and thank me later.

I love all of the Lola restaurants (I’ve been to all of them) and I’m so happy that they have expanded their locations to include Boston. I’m such a fan of their sushi, burgers, and their espresso martinis.

Where to eat in Boston: Mamaleh's Cambridge, MA | The Stopover


One Kendall Square
15 Hampshire St
Cambridge, MA 02139

Mamaleh’s is a classic deli experience. I especially love their breakfast situation. Potato latkes, pickles, bagels, and smoked fish. I honestly love it all and promise you won’t regret trying Mamaleh’s.

UNI | Boston, MA | The Stopover by Meaghan Murray |


370A Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02215

UNI is one of the most consistent and innovative restaurants in Boston. If you’re a sushi lover, this is a must-try. Their menu is ever-changing so it’s hard to recommend one thing. But ask your waiter for their picks and I promise they won’t steer you wrong.

B&G Oysters in Boston | The Stopover

B&G Oysters

550 Tremont St
Boston, MA 02116

B&G is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. It’s great year-round, but the back patio in the summer is something special. I recommend going and getting a shellfish tower and the B&G white wine.

Hotels in Boston range from super modern to classic luxury. There’s a vibe for everyone.

No. 284: A Modern Art Lover's Dream Hotel in Boston, MA

No. 284

284 Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02115

New to the Boston hotel scene, No. 284 is no amateur. Located in a brownstone right on Comm Ave, No. 284 is a modern art lover’s dream. Art from the likes of Damien Hearst and Andy Warhol (yeah, that guy) hang on the walls of the guest rooms and common spaces. Definitely add No. 284 to your list when visiting Boston.

The Fairmont Copley Plaza is located in the heart of the Back Bay. The location, lobby, and rooms are gorgeous. Oak Bar, the hotel restaurant, is a great spot for drinks and brunch.

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the US, so get ready for a ride down US history’s memory lane.

What to see: Boston Public Garden | The Stopover

Boston Public Garden

4 Charles St
Boston, MA 02116

In the spring and summer, the Boston Public Garden is one of my favorite places in the city. Grab your coffee to go and sit on one of the garden’s benches and enjoy some beautiful flowers and great people watching.

What to see: The Boston Public Library | The Stopover

Boston Public Library

700 Boylston St
Boston, MA 02116

I really recommend stopping in to check out the Boston Public Library. Not only is it a historical landmark, but it’s also stunning. Take a quick 30 minutes to wander around while you’re in between meals.

Boston has some great options for shopping small. Some of my favorite shops are local Boston shops.

Where to shop: Olives & Grace Boston | The Stopover

Olives & Grace

623 Tremont St
Boston, MA 02118

Olives & Grace is a fantastic shop in the South End. Owner Sofi Madison not only curates her products but also the makers whose products she carries. This is the place for artisanal food, pottery, and jewelry. Definitely stop in a browse around. You never know, you may need hand painted tarot cards. I know I did.

Where to shop: Follain in Beacon Hill, Boston, MA | The Stopover


65 Charles St Boston, MA 02114
53 Dartmouth St, Boston, MA 02116

Follain is one of my favorite shops. Both locations feel very spa-like, but I mostly love the fact that they only carry high-quality clean beauty products. With the beauty industry totally unregulated, Tara Foley’s beauty shop will not only educate you but will also help your relationship with beauty go from toxic to non-toxic.
