Here is my Boston Food Bucket List! This restaurant roundup has more restaurants than you will be able to get through quickly, so be sure to look at the organization by neighborhood. It gets longer by the day, but I am excited to eat my way down the list. Some of the restaurants listed have multiple locations, often in different neighborhoods, so as I live close to Northeastern University's campus, the location most relevant to my location will be where the location is categorized by neighborhood. 

The list consists of many restaurants including some of my favorites and places that have been recommended time and time again. If I don't know someone who has personally loved the restaurant, it will not be on the list!
