Thinking of Spring at Batterypark Bar & Lounge

Batterypark Restaurant

As we slowly make the transition from winter to spring here in Boston, certain adjustments must be made. The winds are still freezing, and the snow makes the morning commutes absolutely crazy! To compensate, we may require more comforts and warmth than usual. 

This is where Batterypark Restaurant comes in. I've met here with friends a couple times, and I always go straight for the same amazing comfort food dish: Lobster Mac & Cheese, which comes with brie, cheddar, and Swiss cheeses, Maine lobster meat and crumb topping, and drizzled with caramel popcorn! It's seriously amazing and I wish more restaurants served it. I would never have thought to add popcorn to lobster macaroni, but the subtle sweetness actually meshes really well with the creamy pasta. The funny thing is, they're kind of stingy with the popcorn and generous with the lobster!

Above is their epic Stuffed Portabella Mushroom Sandwich, which comes with portabella mushroom, red pepper, fresh mozzarella, basil aioli, and sweet potato fries (here the fries are substituted with a mixed greens salad). This is definitely the healthier option, and equally delicious from what I hear.

My current goal is to stay focused until spring!

So we can go from this (man made ice cave on the sidewalk)...

...To this happy, adorable swimming sea otter in the sunshine! This is how I'm picturing spring and summer to be. Totally not unreal expectations. This is also my current wallpaper on my phone btw!

So hang in there, because the snow is melting, the birds are chirping, and there's always lobster mac & cheese in the mean time!

  9. That sea otter is the cutest thng ive ever seen, how were you able to get a picture that close?

    I wish I could use a bit of that cold weather, its been unbearably hot in california this entire winter, its almost as if we dont even have weather anymore. Its just hot summer and warm summers.

  21. omg lobster mac n cheese... I don't know if I'll actually like it. I prefer the traditional bacon bits in mine.. there's a gourmet place that I go to and they have the most amazing gourmet mac n cheese. I definitely think it's a must to have beer cheese in there :)

  25. Lobster Mac & Cheese is one of my favorite indulgences...especially with truffle oil which really takes it over the top.
