Not really a hidden restaurant, but my spouse and I had the Chefs Whim four course dinner at Aragosta on Battery Wharf.

Betsy C.
went to #SwineSouthernTable in Miami. OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! Executive Pastry Chef Max Santiago is AMAZING!!!

On Saturday night, I went to Posto, in Somerville, for dinner w/my bestfriends, Katie. We had put our name on the wishlist(1hr wait for a 2 top). We were able to get seats at the bar(faster turnover). The Garlic Rosemary Sea Salt bread was addictive. I ordered the Monkfish & Katie got the Trout. Both were delicious!! Highly recommend this place.

Went to @gustazocafe for slow-roasted pork, black beans, rice, and maduros. Delicious! #Foodiechats

Tara in Waltham for chacarero and empanadas

@ICOBar on Sunday and sandwiches on the Boston Common on Saturday. It was an al fresco day with dogs.

had a great dinner at Tupelo. Fried chicken, grits, gumbo and pecan pie. Yum.

Went to PapaRazzi in Burlington and had the tortelloni alla aragosta. Delicious!

Restaurant hopping in Maine this weekend: Bintliff in Ogunquit (finally...had a tenderloin benedict that made me euphoric)... In Portland: Duck Fat, Infiniti, Novare Res Bier Cafe, and Bintliff (of Portland).

Tried THREE restaurants this weekend (two new ones!). Had a lovely dinner at Hungry Mother (scored a 7pm reservation around 4pm same-day: must have been a cancellation). Then tried Sofra Bakery for lunch (fantastic) and had a wonderful dinner at Row 34. Also tried cooking prime rib for the first time and made lots of stuff from Momofuku cookbook, but that's going outside the scope of this question. :)

Tornado in Malden... best words to describe it: schizophrenic and uninspired

tried out @aldenharlow it was everything I expected and then some.. Best thing this side of the river in years

Excellent Pork Belly Eggs Benedict for Sunday brunch at @thefirstprinter

Trina's Starlight Lounge for a late Saturday night dinner.

3-course Peking Duck meal at China King. :)

The Oyster Club in Mystic, CT & Zooma in Providence

@piccorestaurant for the best pizza in Boston. And lots of good wine.

Amsterdam Falafel Shop! Best falafel I've had at a restaurant, which says something because I'm Jewish and half-Egyptian.

Farewell dinner w/friends at India Samraat and wonderful pizza lunch from @PizzaVESTA @WaylandWintMkt

tried the new Noor Mediterranean Grill in Somerville!

@palmersandover for parents 50th anniversary party. Wonderful place had a great meal and memorable time. Well done!

Two great brunches in East Boston:
La Hacienda - massive buffet brunch for $7.95 in an upscale atmosphere.
Ecco - excellent sit-down brunch with guava mimosas and short-rib benedicts. 

A Tavola in Winchester. Bigoli pasta was the perfect comfort food for this super cold weather.

I had brunch at The Stockyard in Brighton. Was pleasantly surprised and will go again!

A snowy stroll from Fenway made the cassoulet at Elephant Walk even warmer. And then the cookie

some favorites! @CharliesKitchen @CafeNation380 and @cuttys

@jmCurleyBar (porkchop, shepherd's pie), @sweetcheeksQ (pulled pork, biscuit)
