Papagayo - With locations on Summer and West streets in Boston, Papagayo is
a great mix of traditional, modern and fun. From ceviche and guacamole prepared
tableside, to ancho chili glazed short ribs, the menu is eclectic and sure to
please anyone who walks through the door. They also feature more
traditional options including enchiladas, tacos and burritos. We love the presentation
of their fish tacos! Make sure to save room for dessert, you won't
find their famous tequila snow cone anywhere else in Boston!
In the mood for Mexican tonight? Whether you are on a weekend getaway to New England, a guest of Clarendon Square Bed and Breakfast, or a resident of the city, Boston has several great choices to pick from. Our three favorites are dishing up authentic and innovative cuisine, have distinct and inviting atmospheres and are sure to leave you coming back for more.
1. Temazcal Cantina - There are very few views in Boston as breathtaking as the one from Temazcal Cantina. Nestled into the heart of the Boston Seaport District just steps from the Boston Tea Party Museum, Temazcal features sweeping Boston Harbor views, more than 300 bottles of tequila to choose from and an elevated menu sure to delight. Instead of opting for traditional Guacamole, try their lobster version with large chunks of Maine lobster and Serrano chilies. The chilie rellano is served with a pepitas quinoa, an innovative and delicious take on traditional rice. Their skillet jalapeno cheddar corn bread with anejo honey butter is a must order!
2. Cassa Romero - When you step from their side alley entrance into Cassa Romero, you are instantly transported into the heart of Mexico. With bright Talavera tiles adorning the walls, the space is unlike anything else you will find in Boston's Back Bay. Their signature tenderloin of pork marinated in oranges and smoked chipotle peppers is not to be missed. They also cater to vegetarians, with many hearty and flavorful options. They even feature several of their most popular recipes on their website!
So whether you go with Temazcal Cantina, Cassa Romero or Papagayo, you are sure to enjoy your Mexican dining experience. We truly enjoy that all three restaurants have thoughtful cocktail menus, premium tequilas and a wine menu that enhances the menu.

Guests of our New England bed and breakfast can ask one of the Clarendon Square Hosts to make them reservations during their next visit!
