Ramen. Fried. Chicken. Need we say more? Nothing satisfies a comfort food craving after a fall foliage stroll in Boston Common & Boston Public Garden like this ramen fried chicken from Double Chin in Chinatown. We are obsessed with everything they come up with but this one truly blew our minds! Head into Double Chin not too far from the park for some delicious twists on classic Chinese cuisine from two sisters who reminisce about childhood with each dish they create.

If you’re peeping the leaves in the quaint Boston neighborhood of Beacon Hill you have to check out Peregrine at The Whitney Hotel. It’s a restaurant calling inspiration from all parts of Italy, built on the joy of discovery and travel. If you are familiar with Juliet in Cambridge, this is it’s sister restaurant just across the river. You can have a casual neighborhood experience or a celebration at Peregrine following your leaf peeping. Peregrine also means traveler, or pilgrim. Travelers and pilgrims are readily welcomed at Peregrine within The Whitney Hotel, its own destination in a corner of Boston’s iconic Beacon Hill.

Arnold Arboretum & Cafe Beirut

The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University is a botanical research institution and free public park, located in the Jamaica Plain and Roslindale neighborhoods of Boston. It offers a beautiful setting to take in the fall foliage and build up an appetite to head to Cafe Beirut after for some modern Lebanese food. We love that you can build your own meal…one of everything please! Everything they have to offer is packed with flavor and will keep the good vibes going following your fall stroll.

City Square Park & Monument

Nothing quite says comfort them a bowl soup with bread on top and cheese oozing down the sides. #AMIRIGHT
Monument is one of our Charlestown staples. And when we’re not going for their brick oven pizza we of course need to bring the cheese in another way. City Square Park in Charlestown is a lovely place to take in the fall foliage and right near where the cheese is, so we’d say that’s a win, win.

Olmsted Park & Ten Tables

Olmsted Park is a part of Boston’s Emerald Necklace of connected parks and parkways and an ideal place to spend time taking in the beauty of New England fall foliage. Originally named Leverett Park, in 1900 it was renamed to honor its designer, Frederick Law Olmsted. Right near the park in Jamaica Plain, aka JP, is Ten Tables, which is truly a neighborhood restaurant. They have been an establishment in the neighborhood for two decades. They provide a welcoming and comfortable environment while serving hand crafted food, cocktails as well as local craft beers and a sustainable, organic wine list. You can’t go wrong with a bowl of their pasta, especially on a chilly fall day. That’s comfort at its finest right there and we’re here for it.
