Cross #41 off the list!!
Last night, my uncle, Mark, and aunt, Linda, treated Mal and me to dinner at the Top of the Hub to celebrate my 30th birthday. The Top of the Hub is a fancy-schmancy, fine dining restaurant at the top of the Prudential building in downtown Boston. It’s been a goal of mine to have dinner there since I was 22-years-old, so I was really looking forward to this night!
The four of us arrived a few minutes early, so while waiting for a table, we ordered a round of drinks.
I ordered a dirty vodka martini with olives. My fav!
A little while later, we were invited to sit down at our table for the evening.
My uncle managed to get us a table with a gorgeous view of the city.
For starters, the table shared the Pan Seared Foie Gras, which was served with a mini cinnamon roll and blueberry-honey drizzle. Holy amazing! The foie gras was so flavorful and the savory combination with the sweet blueberry-honey drizzle was out of this world!
We also ordered the Jonah and Lump Crabmeat Cake with avocado cream and roasted pepper remoulade. Both appetizers were so delicious, we ended up ordering a second round of each to share among the table.
We also enjoyed some wine with dinner.
For my entree, I ordered the Linguine All’Aragosta, which came with huge chunks of steamed lobster, San Marzano tomatoes, roasted garlic, and a piece of thin garlic bread on top. This dish was fantastic, especially the lobster!
What a way to end the meal: chocolate ganache cake!
I was a very happy lady!
I practically licked my plate clean!
After dessert, I enjoyed an espresso with Sambuca on the side.
Mal and I had such a blast with my aunt and uncle. They love travel and food as much as we do, so we had lots to talk about over the course of the night. Fun times!
My uncle works for the company that owns the Prudential (hence the awesome hook-up), so he showed us a sweet model of the Pru and surrounding buildings.
Mal and I geeked-out and asked a million questions.
What a night! Enjoying dinner at the Top of the Hub was truly a dream come true. It’s definitely a night that I will never forget!
Thanks, Mark and Linda!!!
