Cheap Eats: Barcelona Wine Bar

The Russian and I have recently made the move out to Brighton, and while its farther out than our old place in Fenway, it certainly has given me a whole new group of restaurants and areas to check out, which is awesome. It’s good to know the city in which you live. So after I…

Restaurant Week Bliss: Rialto

So its restaurant week.  I’m super excited about it, and to start off my two weeks of paradise in Boston, I decided to start off with a long–overdue spot: Rialto. Not only is it considered one of the best in Boston, a friend of mine, Jacki from Just Add Cheese, works there and has told…

Cheap Eats: Refuge Cafe

Cheap Eats: Windsor Dim Sum Cafe

Like many couples, The Russian and I relish the evenings when we’re both free so we can have date night.  We were both feeling something different, and decided on Windsor Dim Sum Cafe in Chinatown.
