Valentine’s Day in Boston

February 12, 2017

Yes, I know you hate Valentines Day. No, you can’t avoid it.

For this year’s Valentine’s Day feature we decided to give you a little taste of Boston. Whether you’re celebrating with your lover or your bestie, we chose to share with you a few of our favorite spots that will leave your mouth watering by the time you’re done reading this. We promise this won’t be too cheesy…

The first time I was introduced to Itadaki was my freshman year of college on Valentine’s Day. Seven of us ladies decided to have a Galentine’s Day sushi night and it was the best Valentine’s Day I’ve ever had! For all my single ladies, there is no better way to spend Valentine’s Day than with your favorite girlfriends. If you have an obsession with sushi like I do then make sure Itadaki is at the top of your list. Its sleek, yet cozy vibe makes you never want to leave. Not to mention, they have one of the biggest scorpion bowls I’ve ever seen! Their salmon pizza was my favorite. It was salmon over a fried rice cake with spicy mayo, eel sauce, and sesame seeds drizzled on top. Have I caught your attention yet?

Pier 6

Pier 6 is one of my favorite spots in Boston, especially during the warm weather. Not only is the view amazing, but if you’re looking for a good time, some yummy seafood & drinks then you should definitely give this place a try! Their fried oysters and salmon tartar are to die for. They set the mood with some dim lighting and an awesome playlist. It’s a perfect date spot if you’re looking for a romantic night with a view of the city.

Doretta Taverna & Raw Bar

This was my first time dining at Doretta Taverna & Raw Bar and they sure did spoil me. I was welcomed with warm smiles. The service was amazing and each dish was better than the other. My absolute favorite was their Village Salad, which is basically a Greek Salad, but better (currently craving it). My favorite part about this place is that all of the artwork in the restaurant is done by the chef/owner’s wife, Adrianne Schlow. Her beautiful pieces focus on the female subject and the roles that have been forced on women in our society. Click here for more information on her artwork!
