An East Boston Weekend at The MarkNov 26, 2018 Blog The Mark
A neighborhood that’s always evolving, today East Boston is transforming into a hip neighborhood full of breweries, entertainment venues, and great restaurants begging to be explored. The new condos for sale at The Mark are soon to be some of East Boston’s most desirable homes. So join us for a typical East Boston Saturday, starting with waking up at The Mark after a night of celebrating the end of the work week:
An Eastie Breakfast
It’s Saturday morning, the sun is shining in your eyes, and you need something to eat. Luckily for you, the brunch at Cunard Tavern is just a short walk from The Mark. This stylish gastropub offers food and an expansive drink menu all day long, but the brunch is a special highlight. Whether you’re in the mood for something traditional, like steak and eggs, or more adventurous (try their sweet potato donut holes), the expert chefs at Cunard Tavern have you covered. So sip that Bellini, chow down on some chicken and waffles, and get ready for the next stop on this weekend odyssey through East Boston.
Falling for a Classic
Now that you’ve had something to eat, head over to Downeast Cider House, a destination for cider lovers since 2011 and the perfect place to sip some of the classic fall beverage. Traditionally made using apples, cider has experienced an explosion of flavors, much like that seen in craft beer, and Downeast Cider House is pushing the boundaries of this ancient beverage. Cider lovers make the trek from all over New England to try specialty ciders from Downeast. Take a seat at the bar and try the Red Agave cider made using cranberry-lime cider aged in tequila barrels or the Pumpkin Blend, in which apples combine with seasonal squash and chai spices to create a unique flavor profile.
The Best in the East
No Eastie Saturday would be complete without a classic Italian meal, so, when you’ve drained your last cider, take the short trip up to Rino’s Place, where the DiCenso family has been serving classic cuisine for over two decades. While the menu is fairly traditional, Rino’s sets itself apart with the quality of the homemade pastas that Chef Anthony uses in the dishes, making the restaurant a local favorite. Show up hungry, because Rino’s Place is famous for serving large portions smothered in rich sauce. And if you can’t finish your plate? Well, there’s nothing better than grabbing the last few ravioli out of the refrigerator back at your East Boston luxury condo at The Mark.
