I have been kicking myself for not getting this post up earlier. You might have noticed some exceptionally tasty looking meals on Stay Classy Canton’s Facebook page recently, and wondered what they were and where they were from. I’ve failed you. Stay Classy was invited to the awesome Tavern Crawl by Blue Hill Tavern in October which we were thrilled to accept, even more excited to post about, but then got distracted by fake eyelashes.
The meal started at Blue Hill Tavern with bubbles, light appetizers and finding out the schedule for the night. After a bit of grazing and meeting our dinner-mates, we were driven to Shiso Tavern where we were immediately served sangria and sushi. Additional courses included a deconstructed salad, short ribs and saki. I tend to be a creature of habit at restaurants and this was a great way to try new dinner choices. I’ll definitely be back for the short ribs.
We walked to Tavern on the Square for some upscale pub food like fancy sliders, burritos, duck spring rolls and craft beers. At this point I am super full and realize much of much of my meal will be going in a to-go bag (Lucky M.)
Our van beckons us and we’re ready to go back to Blue Hill. We had two more delicious main course samplings which I took a bite of each, knowing I had to save room for dessert. I’ve never been led astray by a Blue Hill dessert. Apple empanadas with ice cream and some bacon crumbles on top. Yes please. We also got to try out some of their new fall drink offerings. I highly recommend the Autumn Old Fashion (the middle drink below).
The Tavern Crawl/Tour/Taste is run every week in the Spring and by request in the Fall. It ranges from $65-75 a person and well worth it. If you don’t have a van full, you can still contact Blue Hill Tavern and they might be able to match you up with another group. I’m already looking forward to taking M. on this wonderful food adventure. Are you a foodie? If so and you’d like a better description of all the treats and eats we got to sample, check out my dinner-mate Dara Bunjon‘s post for the Examiner. Don’t miss the slide show!
