Lincoln Tavern Brunch: South Boston is Only 5 Miles from Here

Okay, I’ll admit it.  To me South Boston is a bit of a fantastical distant land.  I’ve heard of that particular ‘hood and certainly seen it portrayed in the movies but the reality of Southie didn’t quite seem approachable.  The problem is that in my real life, real world existence, I had a growing list…

Shop Boston’s Piazza: Eataly at the Prudential
