The Salty Pig's restroom
  • Everyone does it, so you might as well use the bathroom in style. Thrillist takes a tour of some of the coolest restaurant bathrooms around Boston, including The Salty Pig with its comic-lined walls and The Regal Beagle, which has dog silhouettes all over the walls.
  • The Boston Globe’s Kara Baskin explores her own nostalgia for lox and investigates the current situation of Jewish delis and bagel shops happening around the city. She checks in with the folks at Mamaleh’s, the crew behind the forthcoming Our Fathers, and others to find out why the Jewish deli is a lost art and what is prompting a resurgence today.
  • Earlier this month, the New York Times released a guide to spending 36 hours in Cambridge, including places to eat. From the storied Mr. Bartley’s to the fancy Parsnip Restaurant and Lounge, Ethan Gilsdorf offers suggestions that could prove entertaining for anyone looking to be a tourist in his or her own city.
  • The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is starting to take a stance on booze-infused ice creams, and the Globe’s Janelle Nanos investigates new restrictions levied on producers that require special exemptions from the federal government.
