Go-To: Mistral

My go-to place for pizza is usually Mistral on Sundays. Oh my god, there’s a grilled pizza with—believe it or not—truffled mashed potatoes and beef carpaccio, which is really good. There’s also a spicy tomato one with cheese. They’re big, flat grilled pizzas.Boston Travel Guide: Sofra

Lunch: Sofra

Days off, it’s Mistral or Sofra, the bakery in Cambridge. Sometimes I say that Cambridge is a little bit more on fire than Boston, but it’s just right over the bridge. Here, Ana Sortun (Oleana) has this hummus bar, so you can pick six or seven items on it: her hummus, shredded beets with tzatziki and raisins, chicken and lamb shwarma. Her husband owns Siena Farms and the greens are so good, so I always get a big salad.Boston Travel Guide: Myers + Chang It could be beautiful lettuce, watermelon radishes, herbs, all barely touched with vinaigrette.

Good for Groups: Myers + Chang

With my friends, we always have a Myers + Chang night. Spicy peanut Dan Dan noodles—gotta have those. I have to have the scallion pancakes and pork buns.

Italian: Scampo

Lydia Shire does an Elephant Ear Walking pizza, which is really good. It’s like a flatbread. Some nights it could just have cheese and white truffles. The wine list and pastas are also great, like pasta carbonara.

Bar Dining: Pigalle

They’ve just gone through a major renovation, so sitting at the bar at Pigalle is always fun. I’ll get whatever chef Marc Orfaly is cooking.Boston Travel Guide: Strip T's I try to tell him not too heavy. He always has interesting salads, fries and tartare on the bar menu.

Best Coffee: Caffe Dello Sport

If I really want an espresso, I actually still go to our little Italy, the North End. The cappuccinos and espressos are right on. The atmosphere is great, especially in nice weather.

Field Trip: Strip T’s

There’s a place outside of Boston in Watertown called Strip T’s. The chef, Tim Maslow, worked at Momofuku in New York. The graphics are really cool—the logo is a strip of bacon—and when you enter, you go through a little deli and into this back room where he’s making David Chang sort of stuff.

Louis Boston

I always love Louis for clothes and other interesting things, like furniture—they go to Brimfield for antiques—books, magazines. Their new space on the waterfront is awesome, and there’s a great restaurant upstairs called Sam’s.

Lekker

For modern home goods, this shop is in the South End.

J.E.M

This is another great little home store, where Jane Miller makes most of her furniture.

The Institute of Contemporary Art

For a museum day, I totally love the ICA; I love the shop, and the curator’s awesome. In the summer, they have grilled burgers, and you’re sitting right on the water. There’s also the Boston Harborwalk, so you can walk from the ICA to the North End after that and have coffee or pastries, or go to O Ya and have sushi.

No. 9 Park Prune-stuffed gnocchi with foie gras beurre blanc and toasted almonds.

Menton Fresh langoustine taken out of the shell and wrapped in kataifi.

Butcher Shop Steak tartare with truffle aioli. The secret sauce inside is like a spicy simple syrup with spicy tomato paste, a little vinegar and sugar.

B&G Oysters Lobster roll.
