Seven of us (including my 1 yr old) went to Cantina on Sat for a quick tapas style lunch with drinks. The Greek (aka my dad)  was paying and we kept ordering Margaritas! That evening we were going to dinner at Bellini’s near Waterford so we didn’t want to eat too much. I took the […]

There is even a great little café nearby the apartment where we would get our morning lattes […]

The most “shocking” part of the experience were the mode of dress of the ladies who served, […]

My friend Kate and I had dinner at Sweet Basil recently since my hubby is away in CA at a conference. My daughter came with us but she slept in her car seat all night! We started with some authentic village bread and a pesto/butter spread. The vibe inside is cozy and rasta-like, pretty funky […]

Scott and I were doing some returns and shopping at the Natick Collection on Sat, and we decided to go have lunch at Sel de la Terre. Denise and I had been there before and really liked it. Sofia was with us so there was a brief moment of panic when her sticky nosy hands […]
