Blogger Dinner at Audubon Circle

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Iโ€™m the owner of Carrots โ€˜Nโ€™ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and canโ€™t lose weight no matter what they do.

I’m lucky to live in a city like Boston where there’s a fabulous food blogger scene. I feel like there’s always an event or get-together for us foodies on practically any given night of the week.

Tonight, I enjoyed a lovely dinner with a group of food bloggers at Audubon Circle in the Fenway area. I’ve probably driven (and walked) by Audubon Circle hundreds of times over the years, but I’ve never thought to stop in. It’s literally steps from the T and not more than a 5-minute walk from Fenway Park, but it’s just enough off the beaten path, that’s it’s never at the top of my mind. But, this will likely change in the future! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Audubon Circle is owned by the same restaurant group as Cambridge 1, Miracle of Science, Middlesex, and Tory Row (remember my dinner there last week?)ย Jayne, the company’s Events and Communications Manager, reached out and invited a group of us bloggers to dinner at Audubon Circle this evening.


Audubon Circle is a really cool place. It’s decor and atmosphere reminds me of Tory Row.

But,ย Audubon Circle has a sweet patio out back! :mrgreen:


Dinner started with a round of drinks. I ordered a glass of Chardonnay from Napa.


Then, we tried practically one of everything from the menu! No joke. We shared at least 20 different plates among the table. Here’s just a sampling:

artisanal cheese selection with seasonal jam


white bean purรƒยฉe with grilled bread


Pam and Elina in action! ๐Ÿ˜€


beef shin quesadilla


“Food… lots of food.”


grilled scallops with creamed corn



asian potsticker box


mussels with garlic, spicy tomato, and grilled bread


watermelon, feta, micro greens, sherry vinaigrette


pressed turkey sandwich with bacon, swiss, and asian slaw


local heirloom tomato napoleon with fresh mozzarella and basil


pappardelle bolognese with pecorino romano and garlic toast


chevre cheese cake with oreo crumb


Highlights of the evening for me were the New England crab cakes with chipotle aioli (not pictured) and theย white bean purรƒยฉe with grilled bread. Both were excellent.

Some of the bloggers left before we remembered to snap a photo of the group, so here’s the remaining crew (l-r): Athena, Elina, Jayne, Liz, and me.


All in all, it was a great meal with wonderful company. I must say, however, I’m a bigger fan of Tory Row– that Bacon Flatbread and those salads… and the beer list… holy amazing! I want to go back!

Good night, folks!



  1. I love Audubon. I happen to try it accidentally one day in the summer but it’s so good. I am also a huge fan of Cambridge 1. If you haven’t tried Cambridge 1 yet, it’s awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The watermelon salad looks amazing! I had one just like it when I was in Boston last summer for the festival in the north end! I crave that and the chocolate ravoli from Boston…. simply AMAZING ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Hi Tina!

    Any chance you could have your newest post not be one you have to click to read more….could you have it like Kath’s blog,where the newest post is on the page fully,but the rest of archived posts are clicks?
    I would be so grateful for that!
    Thanks for reading this,all the best.

  4. This looks awesome! Never been to Boston, but I am certain I would love it! My only big hurdle would be all the fabulous restaurants! I’m not sure my thighs, stomach, toosh, etc., could take living there! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Food, GLORIOUS food! I have a love/hate relationship food-overload posts like these. I love it cos, well, it’s FOOD, but I hate it because I can’t concentrate on one single course. ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. There’s only one thing that could possibly be prettier than that watermelon salad – and that’s the oreo cheesecake. Oh, and you, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. The food looks sooo good! Boston would be a cool place to visit, especially for foodies!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I wanted to tell you that I gave you an award, so please (if you have time, of course) come check it out. Thank you! I love reading your blog everyday!

  8. Wow – what a great spread of food! I live about 5 minutes from Audubon Circle, and have only gone once. I think I’ll need to go again soon! Wish I had known about this blogger get-together… would have loved to join you all :).

  9. Watermelon and feta salad is one of my absolute favorite flavor combinations. Especially when you throw in some mint and a squeeze of lime juice! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks like a great night. I have SO many restaurants on my list to visit next time I’m in Boston.
