Portland has become one of the coolest cities over the past decade, and I'm so happy to call it home base. We moved a bit when I was growing up, and my family would always go to Portland during the summer. With all of the changing scenery, Portland was our constant. I 1000% took Portland for granted, but now I am so thankful that I can visit anytime I want.
Vin Papillion in Montréal
A few weeks ago, I tried out Saltie Girl for the first time. It's a new Back Bay restaurant that focuses all of their effort on seafood - raw, cooked and tinned. They have a great aesthetic as well. Each detail inside the small Dartmouth Street restaurant is a perfect combination of vintage beach. And it's not bad for an Instagram or two.
