The Mark’s sales team is well-versed in East Boston luxury real estate. Tom, Alex, and Jennie also happen to be in-the-know when it comes to the neighborhood’s best foodie haunts. Here are our team’s picks for the best eats east of the harbor and within striking distance of The Mark, offering East Boston’s finest waterfront condos.
Ask Tom where his first choice would be to feast after a full day, and he’ll readily tell you Angela’s Café. The restaurant is renown for offering authentic Puebla-style cuisine is wholly deserved and owed in large part to Angela Atenco Lopez. Born in the State of Puebla, Mexico, she brought her mother’s teaching and the flavors of the region to Boston, where she and her two sons have assembled an impressive menu of homemade dishes. Don’t miss the Mole Poblano Angela with Angela´s signature sauce: true Mexican flavor blends of chocolate, almonds, peanuts, raisins, sesame seeds, animal crackers, and banana. You have your choice of chicken breast or flavorful pork loin. Tom’s favorite: a Pastor Burrito with roasted pork and fresh pineapple marinated in adobo sauce, onion, cilantro, beans, rice, and guacamole in a flour tortilla, plus a margarita. Order your cocktail in traditional lime, or, if you’re feeling festive, try a mangorita.
For pure Boston atmosphere, spend a Saturday afternoon harbor-side. Alex recommends the ReelHouse. Chef Marc Orfaly brings artful twists to classic dishes with an emphasis on sustainable, line-caught seafood. Creations such as his Tuna Poke Bowl with steamed jasmine rice, hijiki salad, sesame spinach, and wasabi soy dressing sit easily next to Boston staples like the New England-Style Clam Bake of local clams, mussels, chorizo, marble potatoes, and corn in an aromatic lobster broth. His efforts have garnered him recognition as one of Boston’s most talented chefs and led to John Mariani of Esquire and Corby Kummer of Boston Magazine naming him “One of the top chefs to watch in the country.” Alex’s favorite: the day’s selection of oysters followed by the Malaysian Style Chicken Wings with sambal chili, yogurt, and lime. Order a Skinny Jeans cocktail mixed with Tito’s handmade vodka, coconut water, cucumber, mint, agave, and lime and linger at the indoor and outdoor bar while gazing at some of the best views in the city.
If the quintessential “Eastie” experience is your game, then make a beeline for Jennie’s favorite, The Cunard Tavern. Drawing on the nautical history of the East Boston shipyard and the people who landed there in search of the “American Dream,” the menus for brunch, lunch, and dinner bring together a wide variety of world cuisines. Cuban Spring Rolls of smoked ham, slow-cooked pork shoulder, house-made pickles, and swiss cheese in a fried wonton with sweet mustard are at home next to the Mixed Fry Poutine of hand-cut sweet potato and russet potato fries, melted cheddar cheese curd, brown gravy, chopped applewood smoked bacon, and sliced scallions. You’ll also find plenty of fantastic takes on pub staples like the Boston And Albany Burger with sweet apple and cabbage slaw, maple and whiskey candied bacon, and Vermont cheddar cheese or the Pancetta Mac & Cheese with creamy cheese sauce, pancetta lardons, caramelized onions, grilled basil, and lemon marinated shrimp next to soon-to-be favorites like the Crispy Pork Belly with honey cornbread, sweet chili glaze, and sliced jalapeño. As for Jennie, she recommends the Beer Battered Chicken Breast Sandwich with sriracha honey sauce, melted cheddar cheese, shredded lettuce, and sliced tomato on a brioche bun. And, yes, mixed fries come with that.
