Picnicking season has arrived in Boston, and we love nothing better in our basket than the perfect BLT. We’ve had them at the odd New York deli and don’t see what all the fuss is about. Here are just a few places where Boston does the BLT right.
•The All Star Sandwich Bar in Inman Square is a natural choice, as these folks know their sandwiches. This is especially evident in the BLT (featuring the freshest tomatoes available and a tasty herb mayonnaise).
•Were you aware that The Pour House on Boylston St. has a BLT and chowder as their Wednesday special every week? What a winning combination! Just to make it that much more sinful and delicious, temper the salt fix with a chocolate frappe.
•We spent many a winter break afternoon bleary-eyed, eating chocolate chip pancakes with friends at Martin’s Coffee Shop in Brookline Village. We still go for the pancakes, but now that we’ve grown up a bit, we eat afternoon-appropriate meals. Sit at the counter and make yourself a regular.
