I keep forgetting how much I enjoy the artistic and creative nature of Boston — in addition, its various culinary finds. Awhile back I stumbled upon Marliave tucked behind the active streets of the downtown area. Aside from walking through the strange alleyway — I would never have thought twice of a restaurant with vintage appeal to be tucked in such an area. Marliave is a 1875 themed restaurant with French influenced cuisine. Downstairs offers a charming bar area but the best part of the restaurant is the upstairs with views of surrounding Boston high rises. For you cheese lovers out there, Marliave offers an actual cheese bar. That’s right — cheese bar served with various artisan meats along side various flavors of fig jams, lavender honey, and olive oils. Pairing all of this with a lovely glass of wine — makes everything in the world right.
A modern interpretation of Othello. Even though I wasn’t able to see it from start to finish — it is definitely something I’d love to see in its entirety. Shakespeare on the Common is an event coordinated every summer and I’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing it. Its inspiration, obviously, is from NYC’s famous Shakespeare in the Park.
My lavender and dahlia plants died awhile back. I fear the next plant I purchase will actually shrivel up instantly with mere sight of me in its visual range.
