When Rachael Ray, Guy Fieri, and The Boston Globe's resident foodies all flock to a restaurant—praising the Hot Mess, Mac Attack, and The King, respectively—you know it’s a hit. That's the Boston Burger Company, whose founders have created a destination burger joint to rival the best of America's burgeoning burger scene.

Of their 24 burgers, all but three boast an eight-ounce certified Angus burger patty. But even their veggie, conch, and turkey burgers get the same creative, careful preparation—they can be beer-battered and fried or rubbed with Cajun seasoning, but all are cooked to perfection. Each burger is crowned with some inventive and surprising toppings, including balsamic mayo, fried bananas, and mac and cheese, to name a few. These seriously imaginative recipes have garnered a lot of attention, winning Rachael Ray's Battle of the Best Burger competition, Boston Magazine's Battle of the Burger, and a place in Guy Fieri's heart on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

The burgers are not the menu's only notable edibles, however. Besides creating a collection of classic salads and chicken sandwiches, chefs also fry up boneless wings tossed in one of eight sauces—including honey barbecue, garlic parmesan, or terodactyl sauce, a tangy fusion of teriyaki and barbecue sauces.

Magpie

Jewelry made from twigs. Surrealist birdhouses. Old bike parts retrofitted into robot statues. These items are just a taste of the unique goods popping up on––and flying off of––Magpie's shelves. But don’t fret—there’s plenty more where they came from. Indeed, impermanence is part of the charm at Magpie, an eclectic bazaar of indie and locally made crafts that are as aesthetically beautiful as they are stunningly unique. What began as a booth at the annual Bazaar Bizarre craft fair transformed into a brick-and-mortar shop when Magpie’s owners recognized the public’s taste for one-of-a-kind items that weren’t manufactured in a factory or built by creepy elves. So they tapped local artists and crafters and filled their shelves with quirky, handmade, and entirely original items that run the gamut from hand-bound journals, to t-shirts, to Queen Bee vinyl handbags. A true champion of local artists, Magpie not only sells artists’ work, but also displays it on its walls, and the shop hosts a regular artist-of-the-month promotion to help promote some of their favorite local designers.
