What 14 Boston Chefs Will Be Eating During the New England Patriots Game – Boston Common

We’ve been waiting all spring and summer to watch Gronk, Julian Edelman, and the rest of the Patriots hit the field, and now the first weekend of the NFL season is here. Naturally, our attention is spit between the gridiron and menu so we have asked Boston chefs to tell us what they will be eating during the game.

“Football Sundays are a favorite past time for my family. We have had season tickets to the Patriots games since 1978. My family and friends are over for an Italian feast for Sunday dinner which is usually early in the afternoon, and later in the day we are still eating left over pasta, meatballs and sausages etc. Late-night we usually have a bunch of pizzas sent over from Antico Forno along with trays of buffalo boneless chicken from Cobblestone because one meal is never enough!”

In today’s fast paced world, I think we all need to take just a little bit more time for ourselves and our loved ones. And you don’t need to travel across the globe (even though we like that too) to have a fun weekend out. So lets explore how to have the ‘stay-cation’ of your dreams!

Getting Started

For any successful staycation, you must plan it with the mindset that this is an actual vacation, but just in a place near where you live. Everything else about a vacation is the same, you will be trying new places, seeing new things and unplugging as much as possible from the real world. So calm down, open your mind and get started!

A Stop Along the Way: Terramia, Boston

I moved to the North End in Boston over a month ago, and last Thursday was my first experience eating Italian food in my new neighborhood. The North End is known for being home to the most incredible and fresh Italian food, so the fact I only just got around to trying what my area is all about is disappointing… at least I got around to it eventually, right?

Since I couldn’t risk being disappointed on my first experience, I had to find the best place in Boston to eat at. Located on the street parallel to my apartment, Salem Street, Terramia is tucked away on the lefthand side. Upon entering, you’ll immediately feel like you’re in Italy. The waiter greeted us, and we sat in the cozy corner seat overlooking the street. I wasn’t disappointed about not having a Valentine until I went to dinner here. If you’re on the hunt for a place to take your special someone, Terramia is the place. Make sure to reserve that corner seat!

Now, on to the food. One of my best friends from childhood, Claire, came to visit for the night, and she’s a huge foodie like me. Especially since she lives in Providence and works at a restaurant, the girl knows her food. Read more
