Gail Simmons Hits the Typical Boston Spots, Praises 'Outrageous' Union of Land and Sea
Today's shocking news: Top Chef's Gail Simmons, in town for the Shades of Hope Gala at the Mandarin Oriental, ate exactly where you'd expect over the past couple of days. She told the Globe that she has "a list of about 40 places where I’d like to eat," but she's only in town for 24 hours, so she had to whittle it down.
Simmons supped at essential pilgrimage Island Creek Oyster Bar on Monday eve ("outrageous union of land/sea!" she Tweeted) and also enjoyed a meal at Myers + Chang on Tuesday. She'll remain in town through today for an event at Babson College with eater-in-residence Andrew Zimmern. (Hey, isn't this more like 48 hours?) Hopefully she can dine someplace worthwhile in Wellesley before she departs.
