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.

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

Mamaleh’s

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 | www.meaghanmurray.com

UNI

370A Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02215
uni-boston.com

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.

Island Creek Oyster Bar brunch in Boston | The Stopover

Island Creek Oyster Bar

500 Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02215
islandcreekoysterbar.com

Brunch, lunch, or dinner, Island Creek Oyster Bar is a stand-out restaurant in Boston. Their menu encapsulates Boston cuisine, and it doesn’t hurt that they have ties to an incredible oyster house. Did I also mention that they make all their bread in-house? Because they do. Go here. Get everything.

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.

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.

Where to shop: Olives & Grace Boston | The Stopover

Olives & Grace

623 Tremont St
Boston, MA 02118
olivesandgrace.com

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

Follain

65 Charles St Boston, MA 02114
53 Dartmouth St, Boston, MA 02116
follain.com

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.
