Hungry Mother

When I think of Southern Food in Boston, my mind immediately goes to Tupelo and m3 among others.  These places have some of the most delicious, down-home southern food.  However, another southern standout here in New England has to be Hungry Mother.  Found just a couple of blocks off of the One Kendall complex in a lovely little house, Hungry Mother offers up delicious southern cuisine in a slightly more upscale environment.  With its intimate dining rooms and windows looking out onto trees and flowers, you feel as though you are sitting down to a meal in a friend's house.  Last fall, at East Cambridge's Rib Fest, I won a gift certificate at a booth to Hungry Mother and we figured it was about time to put it to good use.

When we sat down our server quickly told us the specials for the evening, and without question we had to order the shrimp and grits.  This dish, when available, sells out quickly, and it is easy to see why.  Nick and I split this appetizer, but could have had a little fork fight over the last couple of bites.  Between the perfectly cooked grits, the expertly seasoned shrimp and the cornbread croutons, I was ready to lick the plate clean.

Puritan and Company - Farm to Table in Inman Square

It would be an understatement to say people were excited when word got out that Will Gilson of Garden at the Cellar-fame was opening a new restaurant called Puritan & Company in Inman Square.  With Gilson's farm-to-table experience, you knew the menu was going to be creative food sourced locally.  I must say, this post has been a long time coming (it has been sitting in draft form for a couple of months) which is why the food is a bit out of season!  Nick and I met a friend there on a weekday night, and thank goodness we had reservations because the place was packed.
