'Food & Wine' Says These 2 Boston Restaurants Have the Best Grilled Cheese in the U.S.

There’s something about 20 degree weather that really ignites our cravings for a grilled cheese sandwich. The simple comfort food (often accompanied with tomato soup) is a dish we all grew up with. And thankfully, it’s not hard to find in Boston restaurants.

 

Two of which landed in Food & Wine’s round-up for having the best grilled cheese sandwiches in the U.S. The list included 22 restaurants in the U.S. with the “Best Grilled Cheese,” and Boston was well represented.

 

The article names Roxy’s Grilled Cheese as having one of the best in the country. The food truck and brick-and-mortar restaurant creates some of Boston’s tastiest and most creative grilled cheese sandwiches.

Which 2 Boston Eateries Made this ‘Best Italian Restaurants in America’ List?

When it comes to authentic Italian food, Boston certainly has plenty of it. Not only are we home to the North End’s Italian fare but many of our restaurants have also somehow managed to make this category of food even better (if that’s possible).

 

Two of those local Italian eateries have even earned a nod in Thrillist’s list of “Best Italian Restaurants in America” for doing just that .

 

The list included Brookline restaurant, Ribelle, and South End favorite, Coppa. Thrillist claims that Ribelle pushes the traditional Italian envelope, noting that “when a restaurant’s name literally means ‘rebel’ in Italian, you know you’re not getting strictly traditional fare -- and Ribelle in Brookline delivers on that promise.”

A Drone Toured Snow-Covered Boston, Including Fenway Park (Video)

Over a hundred inches of snow looks a lot prettier from above.

 

Over the course to two days, Boston Virtual Imaging, a real estate visual media production company, took to the skies to prove it. Using a DJI Phantom 2 drone, the BVI crew collected a couple hours of aerial footage, showing wintery versions of some of Boston's most iconic sites, including Fenway Park.

 

"We weren't actually over Fenway," BVI owner Matt Murphy told BostInno in a phone call Thursday afternoon. No, the drone flew around the perimeter of the ballpark...

...After soaring over George Washington, Frog Pond ice skaters, and all of Boston Common.

 

In the video's closing seconds, BVI offers viewers an optimistic, warm message.

"The first day of Spring is March 20. Hang in there Boston."

Boston Convention & Exhibition Center Gets Major Wireless Upgrade

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority has begun installation of a $2.6 million wireless infrastructure overhaul at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

The state-of-the-art upgrade will increase the number of existing wireless access points from 113 to at least 580, meaning a 413 percent increase in number of access points throughout the BCEC.

The MCCA, the first organization in the meetings industry to offer completely complimentary and reliable wireless Internet service at its facilities, has upgraded the wireless infrastructure at the BCEC four times since 2004.
