Boston’s diverse neighborhoods offer delectable delights for discerning palates. Explore the North End, Boston’s oldest neighborhood, where authentic Italian restaurants and cafes line every street.  When dinner ends, don’t miss out on a delicious cannoli or scoop of gelato.  Join a guided tour, complete with tastings, with North End Market Tours or Yummy Walks.

A short walk from the North End is Boston Public Market, New England’s first and only sustainable, year-round, locally-sourced market.  The Boston Public Market is an amazing emporium of regional produce, dairy, seafood, and craft breweries.  The Kitchen at Boston Public Market features weekly cooking classes and chef demonstrations. Nearby is Quincy Market, where scores of food vendors offer regional and international cuisine for folks on the go.      

Wherever your Boston trip takes you, a dynamic dining experience is around the corner.  The bistros and tapas restaurants of the South End are ideal spots for social diners; the steakhouses of Back Bay are capital indeed; millennials will love the brasseries and craft brews offered across Cambridge and Somerville; and the emergent Seaport District is home to Boston’s newest dining digs.  And more culinary destinations are on the horizon!  Mario Batali’s mega-complex Eataly is open in the Back Bay, while Tuscan Kitchen & Market is scheduled to open in the fall of 2017 the Seaport District.
