Bit of Boston takes New England fare seriously.
Our kitchen designers, Margaret and Ron Cook, got us hooked on Bit of Boston and you will be, too- the service is sweet and VERY New England, down to the accent. Heads up, though, they close often on holiday weekends to head back North, so call ahead to make sure they are open; and like in a little roadside lobster roll stand in Maine, don’t expect décor- in fact, that would probably take away from the authentic taste and feel.
Strickland’s Ice Cream in Gulf Gate has been in the biz since the 1930s.
Next, head over to Strickland’s Ice Cream in Gulf Gate on the side of Books a Million, that faces the Tamiami Trail. Holy creamery is what I have to say- this incredible frozen custard beats Rita’s by a mile. The flagship store in Ohio has been making frozen custard since the 1930s.
A cone from Strickland’s is a sweet treat.
