Get a million small plates and share them all with friends at the city’s trendiest tapas joint. Cured ham, roasted corn and paella are the big winners.

Spaghetti and meatballs at Carmelina’s

In the heart of the North End, this is where you get perfectly prepared Italian-American food, hands down.

Clam chowder from Legal Sea Foods

Creamy, buttery and clamtastic. There’s lots of places to score perfect chowder in Boston, but Legal’s delivers consistent goodness every time.

This is out in neighboring Somerville, but well worth the trek. It’s a Greek small plate specialty, served donut-style with caramel sauce.

Oysters and raw bar at Row 34

Straight from the ocean only a few miles away, slurp these oysters on the half shell all night long.

Dim sum to die for at Taiwan café

Not much to look at on the outside, this Chinatown café has perfect Taiwanese soup dumplings, or xiao long bao.

Pink lemonade cupcakes at Sweet

You can’t leave Boston without a treat. These cupcakes are bursting with summer inspired flavor.
