Drink and Salvatore’s

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ 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 can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

So, if you didn’t know already, I’m pretty much obsessed with award-winning chef/restauranteur Barbara Lynch. Ever since I attended the Amelia Earhart Award Luncheon last spring, I’ve become her biggest fan. She has the most inspiring story!

Anyway, I finally had the chance to visit Barbara Lynch’s Drink this evening.


Drink was very cool– upscale, modern, and sophisticated. My type of place! 😉

The service at Drink was pretty amazing. Upon entering the bar, Mal and I were immediately welcomed, directed to a table, and our drink orders taken. I didn’t know people in Boston could be so nice!

My first drink of the evening was a Dirty Vodka Martini. It was perfect.


Mmm… olives! 😀


A little while later, our dates for the evening arrived: Elina and her husband, Adam!


They also ordered some fun drinks, but I don’t think they were nearly as impressed.


While sipping our cocktails, we bumped into another Boston-area blogger: Kelly of The Pink Apron. What a fun surprise! It was nice to catch up with her!



My second drink was a Moscow Mule, which was made with vodka, ginger beer, and lime. The flavor was semi-sweet with a kick to it. I liked it a lot!


After a couple of cocktails, Elina, Adam, Mal, and I headed to Salvatore’s for dinner.


We started with bread and olive oil for dipping.


And, then we ordered a 19″ pizza to share between the four of us. One half of the pizza was Spinach, Tomato, Feta while the other was Buffalo Chicken.


I ate a piece from each side, but I especially loved the Buffalo Chicken. There’s just something about alcohol and buffalo sauce that pairs so well together! 😉

Mal and I had an awesome night with Elina and Adam! Hopefully, you’ll see more of them on CNC in the future.

I am exhausted (and full of pizza), so I’m heading straight to bed!

G’night! 😀



  1. You need to go to Drink on a non-weekend night. Much better, intimate experience; you really get to talk to the barkeeps and learn about their craft!

  2. Looks like a fun night! You did a great job of enjoying yourself and having a few drinks, but not overdoing it! Good job, I’m not sure I could have controlled myself that well with that great looking pizza:)

  3. The Moscow Mule sounds pretty good. I’m not particularly adventurous with drinks but I should really branch out.

    Sounds like a fun night! Enjoy the weekend!

  4. Two more restaurants to put on my list! Looks like you had a blast.

    I recently made buffalo chicken calzones, which I bet you would enjoy if you liked the pizza.

    Have a great weekend, Tina!

  6. Moscow Mules from Drink are THE BEST! I love their gingerbeer; it’s so spicy! I am craving one…too bad I don’t have any plans to come to Boston anytime soon!

  7. I think it is so awesome how you know all these bloggers in the area, and definitely explains how you’ve been able to reach out to so many people and acquire so many readers. Major kudos for that. Everything looked delicious. Friday was made for pizza and drinks.

    On an entirely unrelated note, and one that must have been mentioned by a million others but I’ve never noticed it in your comments–do you watch Greys Anatomy? Because your husband looks like Owen Hunt from the show (Kevin McKidd). Like, not twins, but definitely cousins.

  8. Moscow Mule is my favorite mixed drink! The first time I had it was in Boston…..Texas bartenders don’t seem to know the name–so a little explanation is required.

  9. I always think I’m going to like a dirty martini but then I never do and my finace has to drink mine. Not that he’s complaining about that.

  10. Looks like a fun night!! All this amazing restaurants you and Mal go makes me want to pick up and move to Boston! They seem to have such a great variety of awesome places to eat! Lucky you!

    That pizza is making my mouth water! Looks sooo good!

  11. I love how pizza and drinks can still be a part of your Lose the Dough plan. You practiced moderation but still got to enjoy delicious eats with your friends. Whenever I’ve tried “dieting” in the past, I found that going out just isn’t as fun anymore. Who really wants a side salad with low fat dressing for dinner? NOT ME! I’m so glad I realized I was doing it all wrong. However, I still need to learn to practice moderation like you do. Because when it comes down to it, 99% of the “diet” part of losing weight is portion control. 2 slices of pizza for me very quickly turns into 4…!

  12. Mal is such a good sport for appearing in your blog. I don’t think my hubby would consent to it, he’s a big grump! 🙂 That pizza looks great, but the huge dirty martini looks like the best part of the meal to me. Love those!

  13. I think Elina was a harsher critic of her drink than me last night 🙂 My margarita was really good, and my second drink, whatever it was called, was extremely unique. I wouldn’t order it again, but I’m glad I tried something funky!

    Good times last night!
