You know how much I enjoy my food so the fact that I look forward to the Taste of the South End each year will not be a shock. The event draws 40 restaurants from the neighborhood and consistently sells out. The proceeds go to the very worthy AIDS Action Committee.
The event includes plenty to eat and drink with more than a dozen different wines to sample. Sam Adams was the brewer on hand this year and they were featuring their new cider, Angry Orchard. If you like cider, its worth the try. The VIP lounge which traditionally includes a specialty bar, restaurants from outside the South End and comfortable seating did not disappoint. Restaurants in the VIP lounge included: Jasper White’s Summer Shack, Cambridge favorite – Upstairs on the Square and The Ritz Carlton’s – Artisan’s Bistro.
