THE DISH – the buzz on boston’s foodie scene
so, this is not new news … but i just couldn’t imagine hosting a blog that talks about the boston restaurant scene without showcasing franklin cafe. franklin has been covered by all of the boston media (see chronicle’s video feature below) and almost everyone i know has eaten here at one time or another, but for those reading this who have not – YOU HAVE TO GO. this is one restaurant that is truly a neighborhood restaurant that keeps you coming back.
nestled into the brownstones on shawmut ave., this absolutely tiny 50 seat restaurant has what i call the ‘ever-changing menu.’ owners, david debois and maureen mcLaughlin, make sure that the menu continues to reflect Boston’s constantly changing and growing “cosmopolitan sense of self.”
my promise? you’re going to be hooked. chances are you’ll see me and my guy there (in fact, i swear we are in the background of at least 2-3 of the shots in the chronicle segment below).
