If you can’t beat Boston, eat it.
I’m Katie Freketic. I’m a kid in my early thirties with a big appetite. Whatever money doesn’t go toward mortgage payments ends up in a restaurant in the South End.
I grew up in a NY multicultural kitchen with a taste for braised meats, super punchy sauces, and on occasion, individually wrapped cheese slices. I moved out of the city proper and into the Boston metropolitan area, after graduating from BU in 2008. If provoked, I am a fierce defender of New York pizza, bagels (with lox and schmear), and the Yankees.
My goal here is to document my culinary journey, eating my way through Boston’s best food establishments, cooking some mean dishes in my small greater Boston kitchen, and making and sharing memories with my fellow diners.
In the real world, I have a passion for young entrepreneurial start ups and local corporations. As a senior manager at a Big 4 public accounting firm, I have served clients in industries ranging from medical supplies and devices, technology, life sciences, consumer goods, and environmental services at all stages of a company’s life cycle. My profession lends to my often sporadic blogging throughout the year, but both balance my peace of mind.
I’m so glad you’re here. I truly, truly am. The blogosphere is a big place, so thank you for spending a moment with me and experiencing my Boston eating/cooking adventures.

For the technical stuff – In the comfort of my own home (or when I’m feeling especially bold in public places) I shoot using a Nikon D200 equipped with my nifty fifty. When I feel like a meek little church mouse, I opt for my slightly less obnoxious Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II or more often, my iPhone 7. On even rarer occasions, I’ll shoot with my plethora of film toys (Minolta XG-1, Diana, Holga, Lomography Fish Eye, FujiFilm Instax, Polaroid One Step, Polaroid sx-70).
I don’t care who you are, you can’t beat natural light. My job rarely affords me with memorable day time meals. However, on weekends, I will be that annoying person pushing for a window seat… I may also call to make a dinner reservation at 4:30 p.m. just to make sure we have ample light around.
