Do you ever get really tired of the same old food in the dining hall? Are your taste buds screaming for something new to chew on? Well, you are in luck! Boston has amazing restaurants to go to if you are looking to treat yourself! Below are 10 delicious places to eat around Emerson College!
1. Boston Burger Company
If you are looking for a really good burger with toppings you never managed would be on a burger this is the place to go to! They also sell crazy milkshakes that will have you drooling! They are most famous for the 4/20 burger which has mozzarella sticks, mac n cheese, onion rings, and bacon on top of the burger drizzled with delicious honey BBQ sauce. You will truly be stuffed after eating this burger but then you’ll be able to take the best nap of your life!

3. Met Back Bay
If you are tired of the breakfast at the dining hall and you are craving avocado toast this is the place for you. Not only is the food scrumptious but also the restaurant itself is beautiful and makes you feel very calm. My favorite dish there is their avocado toast which consists of salmon, prosciutto, over easy eggs and burrata.
279 Dartmouth St, Boston, Ma 02116
Paparazzi is known for their amazing pasta dishes which are to die for. Their Gnocchi dish is my personal favorite dish that they offer. I suggest going to this restaurant in the spring so you can dine outside, it will make your meal even more enjoyable.
159 Newbury St, Boston, Ma 02116
5. Jade Garden
You are at Emerson College so if you don’t go to Chinatown and get Chinese food then you are missing out! Jade Garden is super close to campus and it is actually pretty cheap if you split the check with at least three friends. You’ll also have a lot of leftovers so you don’t have to go to the dining hall two days in a row.
20 Tyler St, Boston, Ma 02111
6. BlackBird Doughnuts
Are you ever in the mood for something sweet but also something savory? This amazing spot is known for just that! They are most famous for their Everything Bagel Doughnut. Which includes a brioche doughnut filled with whipped cream cheese and topped with toasted garlic, poppy seeds and more!

I recently went here for the first time for one of my friends birthdays and it was absolutely delicious. I have never heard of white BBQ sauce until I came here and trust me I was missing out!

Wanting some Italian food but you don’t want to travel to the North End? Maggiano’s is for you! The North End may be known for their good Italian restaurants but Maggiano’s is just as delicious and cheaper!

Did you just ace that midterm that you were stressing out over? Celebrate by going to the North End and eating some delicious Italian food! The food here is superb and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Your food comes out in a pan which is very creative! Trust me when I say that you will leave wanting more.
11 Parmenter St, Boston, Ma 02113
11. Mike and Patty’s
Mike and Patty’s was one of the first breakfast places where I went to when I arrived in Boston. I suggest going in warmer weather because this place isn’t a place where you sit down and eat. My friends and I sat on the sidewalk enjoying the view and the great breakfast sandwiches we bought.
12 Church St, Boston, Ma 02116
12. The Friendly Toast
I took my roommate to this restaurant for her birthday and we had amazing breakfast! If you want to go here I suggest making a reservation because it is always extremely busy. The wait is worth it though.

13. Off the Common
If you want to find somewhere to eat that is close to campus, this is a great place for you! Getting sick of the same old breakfast in the dining hall you are in luck because Off the Common has a breakfast buffet! Also, it’s all under $30!
50 Park Plaza Boston, Ma 02116
14. Back Deck
Back Deck is only 4 minutes away from campus and it is known for their cookout classics! If you are gluten free they also have a whole separate menu and it is very cheap which is a surprise!

15. Genki Ya
Finding a cheap delicious sushi restaurant is hard especially in Boston. I was thrilled to find Genki Ya! The sushi is really good and pretty cheap.
232 Tremont Street Boston, Ma
16. Montien Thai Restaurant
If you are looking to try something that you’ve never tried before this is the place for you. It’s a bit expensive if you are someone who spends a lot of money on food. Their portions are big so I suggest paying as little as possible.
63 Stuart Street Boston, Ma 02116
17. My Thai Vegan Cafe
I’ll be honest, the dining hall doesn’t serve the best vegan dishes. So if you are tired of the dining hall and all you want is food that you drool over, this is a great place to start. Never fear because it is actually a pretty cheap place to dine and the food will leave you smiling ear to ear!
3 Beach Street (2nd Floor) in Chinatown Boston, Ma
This is the ultimate crowd pleaser! You can enjoy a dish of your own creation. They have everything from Mexican food to Italian! So if your friends can’t agree on somewhere to eat because everyone is in the mood to eat something different this is the place for you.

If you miss the delicious Mexican food from home I suggest going here! It’s extremely cheap and comes with guacamole for free! What more can you ask for?
