Neptune Oyster: The Everlasting Shout-Out (UPDATED 7/2012)

Friday, January 28th, 2011

***Adding on to my last post; the old one begins with the next trio of asterisks. Neptune’s long been the clown car of North End eateries, but these days the emphasis is on “clown,” with goofballs galore spilling in & out merely to check the “Ben-Affleck-sat-here” box on their tourists’ to-do lists. The Director got […]

Dispatch from Boston 2010: Neptune Oyster’s Michael Serpa Is David Nevins’ & My Love Child

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

The Director & I have an understanding that the Chowhound part of my heart belongs to David Nevins. The original chef of Neptune Oyster left Boston at roughly the same time I did to open Osetra Sono in Connecticut, leaving in turn a void for the place I’d call my own that no place since […]

Big Apple/Beantown Dispatch 2: Neptune Oyster in a class, in a post, in my heart by itself

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Straight from Boston’s South Station to Haymarket & on into me olde stomping grounds, the North End, the Director & I, luggage in tow, reached the Neptune Oyster entrance at 11:30 am sharp, just as owner Jeff Nace was opening the door. He gave me a hug. The staff proffered hearty hellos. Our server welcomed us back at the […]

Topping the roster: Neptune Oyster (Boston)

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Melancholy descended before we did. Though Denver is not yet my home, one glimpse of the skyline from the plane window confirmed that Boston no longer can be. Not that melancholy isn’t its own form of joy. Especially under the spectacular circumstances: the Director & I shot straight from Logan into Chinatown & The Best Little […]

Dish of the Week: Eggplant & Tofu Bánh Mì (& then some) at Strip-T’s, Boston

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Technically, it’s in Watertown. Historically, Strip-T’s was your basic neighborhood hash house—long-standing, fiercely local—but its future is unfolding as a local-boy-makes-good game-changer involving the owner’s son, a David Chang protégé by the name of Tim Maslow. And truthfully, I was led there by culinary Pied Piper MC Slim JB last week—but there’s not a chance in […]

Dispatch from Boston 2010: No. 9 Park—Confession & Luxurious Penance

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

***Note to readers: After my epic jaunts to Chile & Boston this spring, I’ve got loads to show & tell—but rest assured I haven’t abandoned Denver! New posts on the local dining scene to come too.*** I have a confession to make that may ring scandalous to those who knew me back in Boston: in […]

Dish of the Week: Prune-Stuffed Gnocchi, No. 9 Park

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

Last week, for the 1st time since the series launched in the fall, I didn’t name a Dish of the Week. It wasn’t for lack of nominees, believe you me. On the contrary, the embarrassment if not downright mortification of riches we encountered during the Bacchanalia that was our jaunt to Boston left me feeling all […]

Dirty Laundry List Con’t.: Every Other Single Thing I Tasted on My Trip to Boston (+ a Shout Out to the Chefs I Missed on This Merry-Go-Round)

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Of course I’ll be flashing some photos & spilling my guts out (almost literally at this point) to provide specifics in the next few weeks—but just to finish the really rather appallingly gluttonous nonsense that started here: gjetost… aged edam… mimolette… …w/ crackers horseradish-leek cheese spread w/ French bread grilled cipolline & mushrooms marinated cucumber […]
