If you want to tell me what areas you will be in I can help.  Also, what styles of pizza are you interested in?

I was mildly disappointed to find that this topic wasn't about a Caputo flour unique to Boston. I might have had to order a bag.

And the flavor profile would be similar to

Well if you want to take the nostalgic trip down Boston pizza begin with the original Pizzeria Regina on Thacher St and Santarpio’s in East Boston. 

I’m not a fan of Galleria Umberto Pizza, Parziale's Bakery around the corner is much better.

For something more unique and was common in many bakeries and corner stores back in the day in Italian neighborhoods,  try the no mozzarella slice from Milano’s in East Boston.

And of course Scott’s very own Stoked Pizza.

First time to Boston so I have no idea where we'll be.  Sightseeing and some food is planned by my wife and sister.  My brother in law and I just pay and say ok dear whatever you want. :)

All I know is we are touring fenway Park and Harvard. Doing the freedom trail and walking tour.  We are staying in Salem and might do I day trip north

So any must try food places, pizza, seafood etc would go on our list

Mike's cannolis is the only place I've been told we're going to

This is from one of my favorite DDD episodes. The guy is an unbelievably good cook. Love to try it myself some day. Bet it is damn hard to get in. This is 4 minutes, I think you will love it. Enjoy your trip.

If your interested in trying my pizza I have a restaurant very close to Fenway park and another right by Harvard Square, two of the areas you mentioned visiting.  They are called Stoked Wood fired Pizza and Stoked Pizza.  Definitely shoot me a heads up via PM ahead of time if you end up doing that.     

My favorite restaurant right now is probably Oleana. It always totally knocks it out of the park. Its not a vegetarian restaurant or anything, but I never knew vegetables could be that good.  Its worth the drive even if its out of your way a bit.  https://www.oleanarestaurant.com 

When im in Salem I usually hit Turners Seafood.  https://www.turners-seafood.com. Its also pretty hard not to bump into a Legal Seafoods when your in town with all their locations, but dont let that scare you. I have never had a bad meal there either.   

For pizza, Pizzeria Regina in the north end has never let me down, and I think you will be in that area.  Its sort of a cross between NY slice style pizza and classic sit down coal fired NY pizza (but its not a coal oven). I used to really like Santarpios, but I have had quite a few bad pies there over the years so I havent been there in a while.  I really like Area Four and Picco.  I havent been, but I have heard great things about locale (also north end) and brewers fork (very close to north end).  For Neapolitan, my favorites are Rossopomodoro (located in Eataly), Posto, and Ciao pizza and pasta (right by the airport).

Rinos place (with the ddd link) is for sure really great. If its hard to get in or out of your way there are also a lot of spots in the north end that I think are right at that same quality with similar menus.

I think you will really enjoy your visit.

I happen to like Dunkin', but obviously that isn't relevant to flour milled in a nearly 400-year-old former English settlement. I anticipate a successful mill in Boston might draw upon the Puritanical heritage of what is considered an ancient city by American standards. Perhaps even use milling methods from long ago, say ... like these guys.

Oh, the irony. I drove past there in 2012 on my way to Fenway Park, where I had concession pizza during a game against the Blue Jays. I'm sure I would have preferred yours if you were established at the time.

I'm near the home dugout in the following video (that nobody needs to watch):

Edit: I had to wait the entire rain delay standing next to the pizza vendor in the corridor. Eating pizza became inescapable.

Thanks Scott.  We are doing the fenway tour at 10 am sunday. We plan to eat lunch after and then do the Harvard tour I believe at 3pm. 

So I'd very much like to try your pizza but as of now I don't know what the other want.   So I will let you know

Thanks for all the info.  We'll narrow some things down Saturday

Title: Re: Boston Pizza Places

Also we do have a car but many friends have told us to do the train because parking sucks.  Another thing to work out

Jerry
Title: Re: Boston Pizza Places
Post by: scott r on March 18, 2022, 07:31:30 AM
Thats probably good advice to take the T, although I will say that the parking in Boston is easier since covid with less people in the city.  Stoked Wood Fired pizza is a short T ride on the green line C train from Fenway (the kenmore stop).  It is a fairly long ride to Harvard square from there since you have to switch lines and there is decent distance between them, so the schedule might get kind of tight.   

Your best bet might be to get yourself to Harvard square right after the Fenway tour so you can better gauge how much time you have to eat.  There are better food options there than what you have at that Kenmore (Fenway) T stop although there is a Pizzeria Regina slice shop right there.   The pizza is definitely good, but most people will tell you that you want to go to the North end location for their best pizza.   

Once you get to Harvard you can figure out if you have time to sit down and eat or if you need something fast thats more grab and go.  Right at the Harvard Square T stop are some great sandwiches at Cardullo's market, some great quick Burritos/Tacos at Felipe's Taqueria, and a solid burger at Tasty Burger.  For a quick dessert I highly suggest the cereal milk soft serve from Milk bar which is also one minute from the T station.  In the same storefront as Milk Bar is & pizza.   

If you have a little more time you can walk 12 minutes to Stoked Pizza. We are a sit down whole pie kind of place, but the pies come out fast (its a 3 minute bake time).  We also have great wings and salads.  I am on the Harvard campus, so its probably not too far from your tour, although that probably starts back the 12 minutes to where the T lets you off (the middle of harvard square).

I remember eating seafood at Union Oyster House. I'm not sure what the locals think of it, but they apparently are from 1826.

When I do get back up there I want to try a bar pie...though I don't know how far from the city that will be for you. (In addition to one of Scott's pies.)
Title: Re: Boston Pizza Places
Post by: scott r on March 18, 2022, 08:50:02 PM
There is nothing wrong with the Union Oyster house.  You cant open in 1826, still be open and not be good lol :)

Up until very recently there were no bar pies in the city, but there are a few spots doing them now. One is called Hot Box (technically in Somerville), another is called Bardo's pizza.   I havent tried them but I have heard they are both good. 

The closest classic bar pizzas to the city are probably Lynwood Cafe and Town Spa which are both about a 30 minute drive due south.   They also happen to be two of the best. Cape Cod Cafe (who invented the style) is only about 15 min away from each of them.

If your there on a Wednesday or a friday my food truck should be very close, if your interested shoot me a PM before you leave so I can let you know where we will be.

You have quite a lot of good restaurants there as well as our best breweries without having to leave the seaport. The beer at Trillium is incredible and I hear they are making pizza now, also lord hobo is awesome.  For food you have Menton, Legal Seafoods, Ocean Prime, Chickadee, row 34 (lobster roll!), Mortons Steak house, and my favorite BBQ in New England at the Smoke Shack.  Also, Pastoral has solid Neapolitan.

A walk to the north end is not bad from the seaport on a nice day so I would hit Reginia. Locale is awesome too if you prefer a faster wood burning pizza.   There are a lot of choices there for great Italian restaurants there as well.  Neptune oyster is there with lobster rolls featured on the show best thing I ever ate.

Pizza at Bambolina is usually solid.  If you do head north up near Gloucester, Short and Main is very good.  Not pizza, but Settler here in Salem is really nice (self-described as “New American”).  A&J King bakery has great bread, sandwiches, pastry/treats, and good coffee.  Lastly, Melt is a good local ice cream shop that just opened back up for the season.  Enjoy!

Went to Scott's for lunch before our tour. Got a plain cheese, my sisters favorite, and  a porky plus some wings.   The restaurant was very impressive. The decor, music, and especially the food. It was all great. Only thing missing was Scott.  Great lunch then we walked to the Harvard tour meeting spot.  Hit up Mike's cannolis for tonight's dessert. So far a great day

It was a different pizza than Scott's at "Stoked Pizza"   both were very good. The group concensus was we preferred Scott's pizza.  Just a better tastier sauce

Jerry,

I grew up in Salem and lived in a famous home that was originally built around 1770. When my parents bought the home, for $15,000, it had previously been remodeled to be a rooming house. They later sold it for $45,000. The new owner’s plan was to restore the home to its prior condition. The home has been written about many times over the years. This article provides some of the details along with some photos:

https://www.preservingsalem.com/grimshawe-house

The article in incorrect about the home being used for a barber shop. My father was a barber and he set up a “barber shop” in the basement where he gave me and my brothers haircuts. A later article said that the barbering equipment was still in the basement.

Nathaniel Hawthorne married one of three sisters, Sophia Peabody, who lived in the home. There have been several books written about Nathaniel Hawthorne and the three Peabody sisters.

There is also a famous burial ground next to the home where famous people at the time who died were buried. My brothers and I would hit fly balls to each other in the cemetary and hop over tombstones :-D. No respect!

While in grammar school, I would daily pass the Nathaniel Hawthorne statue on the way to school. And I often passed by the Customs house where he worked at one time.

Living in that home, and being exposed to roomers of all stripes for many years, I came to understand the human condition early on. It was a great and valuable experience. We could have written a book or started a TV series on the things that went on in that home. :-D

As can be seen by this Zillow piece, the home has a modern price value:

https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/53-Charter-St-Salem-MA-01970/56124234_zpid/

There were a few pizza places at the time in Salem, owned and run mostly by Greeks. That is where we went.

Interesting info Pete.  The history in Salem and Boston is Incredible.  We've really enjoyed this trip.  We have walked so many miles and ate some great food.   Tomorrow is our last day and we're heading back I to Boston to see the constitution and finish the freedom trail

Both are fairly small places with great food and a relaxed environment.

In Boston now and just made a res for the Union Oyster House. We were at the MFA today and will go there again before the week is out. MFA is on the Green Line E. Scott you are on the C branch; maybe I'll find my way there. Or maybe the Harvard location if we visit the Fogg. This is our third trip to Boston in five years in which time we've seen more of it than when we lived five years just over the state line in NH.

Made it to Cambridge and visited Scott's between visits to Harvard museums. Scott is in person the nice and helpful guy he seems to be online. Great pizza.

And Scott thanks, you shouldn't have.
