Opening Day Eats


Is there any better time to be a Bostonian? Spring is just beginning to…well, spring, new restaurants are popping up all over the damn place, and tomorrow afternoon, the Sox are back in town, going up against the Detroit Tigers in their first home game of the season at 2:05pm. 2:05? That means you have time to eat lunch before you head to Fenway. Below, three very different options.

•Looking for a quick bite? Head to UBurger for their appropriately-named Cowboy Burger: a quarter pound of ground sirloin topped with BBQ sauce, Monterey jack, bacon, and mushrooms and wash it down with an Oreo frappe.
•If you’re in the mood for a more leisurely meal, try Trattoria Toscana where a dish of orecchiette with pancetta, tomato, and pesto will hold your hunger at bay, no matter how many extra innings happen.
•If you feel like fulling embracing the Opening Day insanity and its attendant crowds and lines, you won’t do better than at La Verdad. Settle in for some awesome guacamole, a few smoked tongue tacos, and a margarita or four. What better way could there be to ramp up your pre-game excitement?
