New England – GOURMET EXPERIENCE
A word of advice: when you are in New England, go for local seafood; it’s very much unlike the seafood you can try elsewhere. People say lobster is synonymous with Boston, and it’s true. For upscale seafood dining experience in Boston, consider Ostra. This restaurant is classical, a little bit formal, with the standards set very high. On a different note, there is James Cook & Company – here you are in for informal – but extremely tasty – fare like lobster Mac and cheese or lobster rolls.
Lobsters are amazing in every aspect, but there is more to delight your palate: brilliantly cooked codfish, oysters on the half-shell, king crab, mussels and fresh steamed prawns. Tired of seafood? There are some excellent high end French restaurants, trendy fusion restaurants in Chinatown, amazing bakery in Martha’s Vineyard island, Bar Harbour blueberry ale and so much more! New England is a good place to spoil that inner gourmet, and also bring home some of local specialties to treat your friends and family.
New England – NIGHTLIFE
Ready for live music, cool bands, exotic cocktails and best DJs? Nightlife in New England is special, vibrant and diverse. Club lounges, outdoor bars, pomegranate margaritas in Nantucket, stiff drinks in Newport, and Boston comedy clubs which are a cultural phenomenon in themselves. Since New England is an extremely popular yachting destination, you’ll find plenty of theme establishments such as Forty 1° North, which is a hotel marina resort where outside visitors are also welcome to the bar area and outside lounge.
