The Perfect Pairings in & around Boston

If you’re looking for a new go-to restaurant for date night, girls night, or to just get out of the house, you’ve got to give these 5 restaurants in the Boston area a try. Not only is the food absolutely delicious, but they feature some amazing wines on their menus from our parent company, Global Wines, Inc.

What to pair it with: ERA Organic Montepulciano d’Abruzzo or El Brazo Albarino

Foundry on Elm, Davis Sq. Somerville
