Eating Out – Boston
Same-sex marriage bells are ringing in a growing number of U.S. states and forward-thinking countries. But where should queers-in-the-know head for forthcoming nuptials or fabulously memorable honeymoons? EDGE suggests letting your five senses make the call.
It’s a city famous for sports, education, history (including a storied LGBT past) and tea – but restaurants? One must assume the nickname “Beantown” suggests a conspicuously bland culinary culture. But Boston has proven in recent years that its gastronomic delights can heartily compete with fellow fine-dining capitals like New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
Boston has been a prime destination for gay men and women to get hitched since Massachusetts broke the legal same-sex-marriage barrier in 2004. This friendly, photogenic city is home to dedicated gay-wedding-planning services like 14 Stories and romantic gay-owned venues like Jamaica Plain’s charming Taylor House Bed & Breakfast. For those seeking a more spiritual venue, the “open-hearted” and rainbow-proud First Church Boston welcomes gay nuptials. Or roll your way into a truly memorable wedding by renting out Milky Way Lounge and Lanes for ceremonies and celebrations in a decked-out bowling alley.
