February 14th is right around the corner, with couples excited to spend this time together. However, others are not as excited at the idea of sitting home and celebrating alone. If you are single and dread the day of love, you can still spend the holiday with your friends, eat yummy food, and make it a memorable Galentine's day!
Brunch is a great way to celebrate Galentine's day. One of the best places to find yummy pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and french toast is Tatte Bakery & Café. No matter where you are in Boston, there is a good chance you are near one of their twenty-two establishments in Massachusetts. The chocolate rose has to be one of the best pastries in all of Boston.
The best destination to visit at any time of day is, of course, Newbury Street. You can find restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is fun to walk around with your friends, go into shops, try new restaurants, and even possibly ending with a stroll through Boston Common.
On Newbury, check out Piattini for a Galentine’s Day lunch or dinner. This Italian restaurant has mouthwatering dishes you will still be thinking about days later. The gamberetti salad and black truffle ravioli are two spectacular options that you and your friends need to try. After your meal, you should stop by Levain Bakery and get scrumptious cookies to celebrate the day.
If you want to get dressed up for the evening, two fun places are Citrus & Salt and Abe & Louie's. Both of these places are very different from each other, but are both very tasty options. Citrus & Salt has a lively atmosphere with vibrant colors and music. They serve Mexican food and fun drinks. Their wide variety of small plates is perfect for you and your friends to share, and the grilled street corn is a must. Abe & Louie's is different in cuisine and atmosphere. This sophisticated steak house has a dark ambiance and exceptional food. If you want to splurge on a nice steak dinner, this is the place to do it, but don’t forget to finish the night off with their delicious seven-layer chocolate cake!
Even if you are single this Valentine's day, you can still make the holiday special by having fun and spending quality time with your friends. Eating delicious food and making memories with people you love makes the perfect Galentine's day!
