Food: Brunch @ The Salted Slate – Providence RI

This past weekend we brunched at The Salted Slate in our favorite part of Providence RI – Wayland Square. An easy ride into town is Providence, one of the cutest and easiest to navigate cities here in New England. Great food, a huge mall, sites to see, an Ivy League school… Providence really does have…

Food: Nachos at The Black Cow in Newburyport

This past weekend we made a trek up the coast to the seaside, and quintessential New England town of Newburyport.  A spot we frequent in the warmer months as the seaside breezes and drinks at The Plum Island Grille are a summer must! However, this time it was for a lunch visit w/ an old…

Food: French Press Coffee & Bakery – Needham MA

Coffee. It’s essentially our life blood. The day doesn’t begin until at least 1 cup of joe is consumed. It sounds counter-intuitive but I get up earlier then necessary to have a cup or 2 of coffee. That time in the morning is very important.

Food: Current Lunch Situation: Shake Shack

The hype is real – Shake Shack’s Chicken Shack sangy is the real deal. It’s just that simple. “Wow, that’s so good” was juts overheard here at the office – like I said. Legit. This is actually my sandwich… and I am sad to see it go, kind of… Its so good! Trying to be…

Visited: Bluewater Bar + Grill, Barrington RI

This past weekend we headed south to Barrington RI for an ocean side dinner w/ family.  As sea side dinning goes, its better to visit in the summer when 1. you can sit outside and 2. you can see the water…

The Cottage – Wellesley

Our love of the burbs, especially Metro West continues! Saturday we dined at The Cottage in Wellesley.  A place we have been before, and a spot we consider for date nights on the regular! A high end feel yet a very comfy place – its a great combo, and a place you can bring kids,…

Visited: Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza Westwood

This past Sunday we hit a new pizza joint here in the Metro West Boston area.  Over the past year or so? A massive development project has been underway near a major commuter rail stop called University Station. I honestly don’t know what it was like before, but it was probably a dump… Anyhow, they…

Restaurant Visited: The Farmhouse, Needham MA

In an attempt to eat local last weekend, we couldn’t resist the urge to go hit up our favorite “downtown” Needham spot – The Farmhouse.  Located at the corner of Great Plain Ave and Dedham Ave, The Farmhouse is decked out in vintage wooden doors, wooden window frames, vintage lighting, canning jars, gingham shirted waitresses…

Rhode Island: Newport & Lots of Wine

So we took off south this weekend, and took Rhode Island by storm.  The Ocean State lived up to it’s name BIG time, as we expected :). The plan was to squeeze as much as we could into a day starting at Sakonnet Vineyards (I refuse to call it by its new name… ever since…

#RoadTrip: Eastern CT

Road trip and Foodie friends! How is the summer going you ask? Its been epic, lots of day trips, lots to eat (and drink!) and way more to come. Our most recent adventure took us to a sleepy town in Eastern CT called Hampton.  A town of approx 2000, w/ an old school country general…

#Roadtrip: Peaks Island Maine (a bit of Portland too!) Part 1

You will all find out over time, or now! That Maine plays a big roll in everything I do. Being a New Englander allows you choices each summer, Cape Cod, The Island, Maine, CT shore, RI shore, White Mountains? Burlington VT? Honestly, its kinda endless. For me, I have been summering on Peaks Island since…

All, Come join us on a road trip around… well, anywhere! Here at Road and Snack we are exploring our 2 favorite things, Food and Cars. New England is our home-field, so expect lots of MA, Maine, VT, CT, RI and NH at first.  But really… there are TONS of road trips to be had here,…
