Boston Restaurant Blog
The creator of Boston's Hidden Restaurants writes about the Boston and New England restaurant scene, including reviews of restaurants, food trips across the region (and beyond), site updates, and more in a blog within our Boston restaurant guide. The blog, which started about a year after the start of the site, includes a number of older entries, including those that can be found in the archives.

Boston and New England Restaurants We Haven't Reviewed Yet
Let's face it; as much as we at Boston's Hidden Restaurants would like to try every little-known restaurant in Boston and New England, we don't have the time, money, or diet plan to be able to do it. There are lots of restaurants in the region that we think would be good fits in this site, however, so we have created a section of the site that gives information on top hidden restaurants that we haven't reviewed yet. This section is broken down by state, including Connecticut restaurants, Maine restaurants, Massachusetts restaurants, New Hampshire restaurants, Rhode Island restaurants, and Vermont restaurants,

Questions and Answers About Boston and New England Restaurants
Yes, we used to have a forum, but it was a bit clunky (and only viewers could post and reply to it), so we have decided to create a questions and answers section on the site where anyone can post new questions (or reply to existing ones) that deal with the Boston and New England restaurant scene. Sections include hidden restaurants of Boston and New England, Boston restaurants (general topics), New England restaurants (general topics), miscellaneous topics, and favorite restaurants in specific New England cities and towns. Check out this fun and popular feature, and please don't hesitate to ask some questions of your own!
