I was recommended this place by someone I met in another bar. From downtown it was a bit of a trek with two L train rides plus a bus and a bit of a walk, but a great adventure. This seems to be a bit...More

We stopped here after a Sox game, and I'm glad we did! I've been to the Pleasant House bakery next door (YUM!), but never to Maria's (as an aside - you can bring food from Pleasant House into Maria's and eat it there). The front...More
