This past weekend was filled with beautiful views, delicious cocktails, Boston bloggers and the most amazing smoked chicken and buffalo cauliflower this girl has ever had.
First off, a bunch of us bloggers were invited to be the first to check out the now open (as of Monday 5/9/16) Lookout Rooftop and Bar at the effortlessly modern and polished Envoy Hotel. Taking the elevator up to the rooftop, I was blown away by the gorgeous Bostonian views of the Harbor and downtown Seaport and Fort Point. Every inch is picture worthy (and instagrammable) especially with the colorful decor strategically spaced out on the patio. The music was bumping and the drinks were flowing, I cannot wait to go back once the sun is shining high and bright.
After leaving the rooftop and getting drinks at my all time favorite Tavern Road (Thank you Robbin and Marlo Marketing!), Georgina, her photography intern and I got a quick bite at the always faithful: Legals Seafood Harbor Side. We had ginormous shrimp cocktail and swordfish over some lentils and melt-in-your-mouth mushrooms.
To close out the weekend my boyfriend and I went on a double date with our friends to the highly anticipated Coppersmith. When I say highly anticipated, I’m referring to my restaurant check list, as this establishment has been open for a while. As I said on instagram, Coppersmith did not disappoint. The atmosphere was bustling as it was the Kentucky Derby. You can imagine all of the characters donning their floppiest hats and preppiest bow-tie and suspender combo. After finally pushing through the crowd and getting to my seat I could finally breathe and take it all in. The rumors were true! There was a full on food truck in the middle of the restaurant. Coppersmith has a warehouse feel with wooden tables and chairs reminiscent of an industrial era cafeteria/ open concept eatery.
If you go, which you most definitely should, make sure you get the Raspberry Martini (more sweet, less sour) and just order rounds of that. It is so delicious and refreshing. I can definitely see myself drinking a few of those on their patio in the warmer months.
As we had one vegetarian in the group we made sure to order a meatless appetizer along with our brined + smoked wings. I’m not just BS’ing you when I say that the smoked wings were the BEST smoked wings I’ve had. They were the perfect blend of tenderness, smokiness and crispiness. Now onto the Buffalo Cauliflower. I’ve seen this item on all of the feeds of my favorite food instagrammers, but never wanted to order it myself. What could be good about cauliflower in buffalo sauce? Well my whole world was rocked Saturday night at Coppersmith. They.were.AMAZING!
They literally (I try not to say literally a lot, but this deserves a big fat LITERALLY) tasted like buffalo chicken. They were so crispy and bursting with awesome flavor. I would’ve gotten a full plate of the Buffalo Cauliflowers and called it a night if I could.
For my meal I had a half roasted chicken with a side of baked mac + cheese with a corn bread topping. Talking about down home cooking where every single taste bud is jumping for joy, while you have to unbutton your pants (should’ve worn stretchy pants!). Every morsel was worth it and I cannot wait to go back to Coppersmith. I hear they have a great brunch menu as well (bring on the corned beef hash!).
