The Rose Kennedy Greenway is a mile-long stretch of greenery and pathways running between Boston's Financial District and the Seaport. Part of the city's urban development project, many new food ventures have popped up along the Greenway from fun new restaurants to food trucks. It makes for a great way to escape the bustle of everyday city life, without having to leave the city:)
Food trucks and farmer's markets especially have capitalized on the crowds that step out of work for a brief repose to enjoy the summer weather with a snack or treat and the Boston Foodie Tours has a fantastically paced Greenway Food Tour every week.
Adding to the excitement, every now and then, a special festival or event will be held. This coming Wednesday is a prime example, with Bon Me's pop up picnic.
From 5 to 9 pm, Bon Me and East by Northeast will be partnering up in a picnic extravaganza. For 15 dollars, you will be offered a prix fix menu including a homemade chilled soup shooter, the classic Bon Me Sandwich with a surprise twist added by East by Northeast, a seasonal vegetable side and a sweet ending.
The food in itself would be well worth the ticket, but getting outside on a Wednesday evening to enjoy what we hope will be a beautiful night right in the city is priceless! (rain date scheduled for the 26th)
I get excited just at the thought of visiting the Bon Me team, so this event has been on my list since I first heard about it. Put it on yours and get your ticket here:
You do not want to miss this, especially since summer days are only getting shorter;)
