Settled by British colonists, Boston has deep ties to Britain. With the arrival of the most anticipated baby of the year, Boston area eateries give a nod to the third in line to the throne by offering food and drink fit for royalty. These British dishes range from fish & chips, to inspired cocktails and true ales, promising to bring Britain to Boston on a plate or in a pint.

Try a sandwich on Boston Common where British troops once camped before facing the colonial resistance at Lexington and Concord in April, 1775. At Common centered Earl of Sandwich, you can eat “The Original 1762” Sandwich and drink an Earl Grey Lemonade.
Order up some fish and chips for lunch at Towne Stove and Spirits on Boylston street; served with their sweet and tangy homemade tarter sauce that is so perfectly balanced you’ll be asking for more of this special sauce. Or pop into any of the Legal Sea Foods locations throughout the city and pair it with something blue in honor of the royal baby boy like their Blueberry Thyme Collins.
At The Tip Tap Room you’ll find a starter with British style in a bowl of their Spring Pea Soup topped with crème fraîche & a crouton.
If you’d like to give the royal wee one a salute, say cheers with a proper ale, like a Boddingtons Pub Ale, or Theakston’s Old Peculiar at Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake. Or sip a specialty cocktail at Boston’s new hot spot, Finch at The Boxer where they’re mixing up several aptly named beverages like the Merrimac Pom Pom , Merri-”Mac Maker and Finch’s Dirty Bird.Drinks at Finch — Photo courtesy of Richard Mandelkorn
