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!
