New to the Neighborhood – A Newbie’s Guide to South Boston
From the desk of Kayla Gentile, Events Assistant:
As a new resident of South Boston, it’s been my personal mission to visit as many places as possible before massive snowpiles crowd the sidewalks (still going strong, fingers crossed!). Although I’m still discovering hidden gems each week, I’m now ready to hand out Southie Superlatives to my favorite places to eat and sightsee.
The Paramount, 667 East Broadway
As a self-proclaimed brunch-addict, I’m lucky to have The Paramount right down the street from my office and home. With its diner-esque menu, relaxed atmosphere, and some of the best Cajun homefries I’ve ever eaten, it’s the perfect spot for a quick bite with friends.
American Provisions, 613 East Broadway
Keeping true to my Italian heritage, I’ve always loved a good deli, and American Provisions was a place I’d been told I “just had to try.” It didn’t take much convincing for me…I walked in during a recent lunch break and became an instant fan. Products are all locally grown, so you know you’re eating the freshest of the fresh. My personal favorite? The “Italian,” of course!
Lincoln Tavern, 425 West Broadway
I like to describe Lincoln Tavern as a “one-stop shop” in South Boston. It’s a modern restaurant by day and an upbeat pub filled with 20-somethings by night. Whether you’re going for Sunday football or a laidback dinner, you can always count on Lincoln for a great time.
Castle Island, William J. Day Blvd.
What do I enjoy most about Boston so far? There’s always something new to explore, and it’s usually right around the corner. In my case, that was Castle Island – a spectacular scenic location to run, walk, then eat some amazingly greasy food at Sullivan’s, all while taking in the view of the harbor and city skyline.
