Boston Magazine: Best Of Boston

Every year Boston Magazine does a Best of Boston issue to highlight the shining stars of Boston.  I got to cover some of the best new restaurants and food stuffs around town (and got to try a few samples as well!).

I started by heading over to Menton to photograph Chef Scott Jones' latest creation, hot dogs!  You might think you heard that wrong, yes Menton is serving hot dogs.  These are no ordinary hot dogs though.  With such choices as the foie-gras frankfurter and the lobster roll dog, these are definitely gourmet.  

What started as a birthday tradition for Chef Jones, hot dogs and champagne, has become a welcome new addition to Menton's menu.

Even Creative Director, Eric Mongeon, got in on the food styling!


Next up I went over to Matt Jenning's new restaurant, Townsman.  Located where Chinatown meets the Financial district, Townsman fills a void in dining options in the area.  The roasted lamb ribs with maple-rhubarb barbecue sauce is a can't miss, and the brown bread with maple-honey whipped butter served atop the bottom side of a maple syrup can is as fun as it is delicious.  

Lastly I headed to back to my studio with the one and only Catrine Kelty to shoot some summer barbecue.  Want to have a barbecue but hate to cook?  Check out places like Fort Hill Jerk Chicken in Roxbury or Rosebud American Kitchen & Bar for some great takeout options.
