My time in Boston was quite rushed and frantic.  I had to return to New York for several audition appointments, so I ended up taking the midnight bus back to NYC on several occasions.  I would audition the next morning and hop on the last Acela Express I could catch before showtime.  It was utterly exhausting (But, it appears to have paid off… news to come!).  On our last day in town, I opted for a later flight and took time to explore the Commons, Newberry Street, parts of the Freedom Trail, and historic Beacon Hill.  It was a crisp fall day, and the colors around me were a feast for the eyes!

Pho Pasteur is a no-fuss noodle house that is perpetually packed, and rightfully so.  The walls are dotted with plaques and various honors from Yelp, Zagat, you name it; but the local following says it all.  Since it was a stone’s throw from the Boston Opera House, where we played for two weeks in November, I ate nearly every other meal here. You’ll forget the florescent lights and dental office decor when your piping hot bowl of Pho Ga arrives.  I also enjoyed the Bun Ga Xao Sa Ot, Lemongrass Chicken with Vermicelli noodles.

Pho Pasteur. 682 Washington Street (at the Beach St. intersection). Boston, MA 02111. ph: (617)482-7467
