Boston native; food and fitness enthusiast; loves to maximize life at all times!
Favorite Local Shop: Gifted in the South End for you guessed it, gifts; also David's Tea in the South End for fun, seasonal teas.
Favorite Restaurant: It's so hard to pick just one! A favorite that is always fantastic is Island Creek Oyster. My favorite NEW restaurant to the Boston scene is Bastille Kitchen in Fort Point - especially the short rib wellington!
Favorite Place To Work Out: Equinox--one stop shop for cardio, barre, spin, etc.
Best Photo Opp: Walking home at sunset over the Mass Ave bridge.
Favorite Day Trip: Ogunquit, Maine
What I Love Most About Boston: The seasons, walkability, and proximity to Cape Cod.
Where To go For Seafood: Island Creek, Row 34 or B&G Oyster; If you're ever on the Cape you must get the giant lobster roll at The Raw Bar in Mashpee.
Best Juice Bar: Jugos at Back Bay Station: it's a hidden gem and they make the best juices.
Grab a Drink At: Drink in Fort Point for custom mixed cocktails. Tell them the ingredients you typically enjoy and their bartenders will surprise you with a new concoction!
Where I Go For Cheap Eats: Sweet Green for a fresh salad.
