Catching Up | August 2016


Lifeguard House Venice Beach

Hey friends!

August has officially ended, and warm summer days are slipping through our fingers. As we gear up for Fall, we thought we’d let you in on the goings on behind Yin and Yolk – what we’ve been up to, what we’re crushing on, and what we’re planning next. We’re doing these posts each month, so if you haven’t yet, be sure to subscribe below so you can stay in the loop!

Now let’s get to it. Continue reading

Dig Inn

Dig Inn

After months of anticipatory hunger, we finally ate dinner at Dig Inn when it opened its doors on Boston’s Boylston Street in early July. Founded by Adam Eskin, the chain of eateries first began in 2011 in New York and locations spread quickly throughout New York City. This Boston location is Dig Inn’s first venture outside of New York, so we were eager to see if it lived up to the hype.

Spread

The insufferable mugginess of the day had given way to a cool, breezy night, so we were happy to grab a table outside. Along the perimeter of the outdoor seating area were lavender plants, which not only smelled dreamy but also created a rare feeling of seclusion from the busyness of Boston. Continue reading

Banyan Bar + Refuge

Banyan

This has been a post long in the making – we’ve been talking about going to Banyan in the South End since it first opened last July. Banyan Bar + Refuge replaces the iconic Hamersley’s Bistro on Tremont Street and brings with it an Asian fusion and flair. Banyan’s executive chef Phil Tang definitely has a fun way of pairing classic Asian ingredients with Western foods, and we’re thrilled to tell you all about our wonderful experience.

Banyan Dining Room

The space is handsomely decorated with wooden chandeliers that instantly take you away from the city, with beautiful signature green leather chairs to add a bit of color and sophistication to this already stylish space. Continue reading

Sweet Cheeks Barbecue

While we would never claim to be Southern gals, we’re not immune to the occasional hankering for some rich Southern comfort food. When our cravings recently hit with full-force, we headed to Sweet Cheeks BBQ near Fenway Park – the best barbecue place in town.

Chef and owner Tiffani Faison (who was also the Top Chef runner-up from season one) opened this comfort food mecca back in 2011. We can now safely say she has realized her dream of creating a casual, warm place where you can enjoy great company and eat delicious, local, responsibly sourced food. All while experiencing that one of a kind Southern hospitality. Continue reading
