Coleman Research has offices located in six different cities around the world; New York, Boston, Raleigh, San Francisco, London, and Hong Kong. With the diversity in locations, it gives Coleman employees the opportunity at times, to visit these different cities. Whether it be a few days for an office visit or relocating for a new job opportunity, Coleman employees are often on the move. However, while discovering a new city can be exciting, it can also be very intimidating. Finding places to eat, visit, shop is no small task.
Therefore, we have put together our own Coleman City Guides. These guides are sourced from our employees in each location to help create the perfect local itinerary for whenever and however long you visit. This week, our employees took a food tour of Boston and narrowed down some of their favorite places to eat including some recommendations for their favorite menu items.
Without further ado…
Hidden underneath the bridge and located in the midst of Historic Fort Point is the most delicious, and bold Mexican cantina. Lolita offers a lively and rebellious environment with a ceiling decorated in skulls and spared lighting. It’s not only a great spot for a cocktail after work, but it’s also the perfect choice for dinner on the weekend (if you can snag a reservation!) Lolita serves the absolute best blackened mahi-mahi tacos in addition to many shared plates such as nachos, chips and guac, tortas, and the list goes on. It really tops the list as far as gastronomical experiences go. While there are two locations in Boston, Fort Point is the original and a three-minute walk from the office. You can’t miss this place when visiting and everyone who has been here would agree!
A fan favorite! Trillium is at the top of brewing in Boston with several unique locations planted across the city. Right around the corner from Boston’s WeWork office is Trillium’s Fort Point location (three floors of heaven AND a roof deck!) We’re not mad that this brewery also happens to serve some of the best food in town, with a specific nod to the fries. If you’re a fan of IPAs and your visit is in the summer, I suggest the Melcher Street at the Trillium beer garden on the greenway. The Pilsner is a great alternative if hops aren’t your favorite.
A chic, French-style café with locations in every neighborhood, Tatte never fails to deliver on beautiful pastries, amazing café au laits, soups, salads, and sandwiches. Upon entering, be prepared to be moved as the tall ceilings and delicate interior design create the most inspiring vibe. For a rainy day, order the B.L.A.T. with a side of their savory tomato soup, and enjoy some of the best comfort food around. Be sure to take a seat by the window!
While New York had it first, we’d be remiss to leave this ice-cream shop out of the list. What makes this ice-cream shop unique and better than all the rest is obviously their fish-shaped cones. You have the option to choose between a limited assortment of flavors including green tea/matcha, mango, strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, and hojicha. Now imagine the waffle and the soft-serve together with added toppings and you’ve got yourself the best cone in town! The matcha-hojicha mix comes highly recommended!
Overlooking Boston’s harbor and Financial District, you can’t have a bad time at Envoy. All year round, the hotel’s roof deck is bustling with friends, food, and cocktails. Winter is no excuse to miss this place as they deck the roof in igloos and blankets to host all guests who are prepared to brave the cold. This would be an ideal spot to celebrate an occasion or treat a loved one to a special night!
