Salt & Olive named one of Boston Globe Magazine’s “Best of the New”

From the Happy Surprise file: Making Boston Globe Magazine’s “Best of the New” By Mary Taylor :

Well, wow. We were thrilled to learn that The Boston Globe Magazine included Salt & Olive on its “Best of the New” list — a roundup of “140 awesome restaurants, shops, people, ideas, and diversions” that hit the area in 2014.

We’re honored to be in the company of some of our favorite spots such as Alden & Harlow, State Park, and La Brasa, and we’re freshly inspired to create a space, both at 1160 Mass Ave in Cambridge and online, that offers just what you’re looking for — as well as some exciting discoveries.

Noting that salt, olive oil, and vinegar are the cornerstone flavors of Mediterranean cuisine, the magazine’s special issue states that that’s “exactly what Mary Taylor, a certified technical olive oil taster, sells at her chic boutique ….” (We’re going to ride that “chic” bit for a while!)

Read the full story  and — just an idea — how about making a list of your top picks and planning a “Best of the New” day of adventure? (Remember to include us in the itinerary!)

Our hitting the “Best of the New” list would not have been possible if you didn’t come out to play — and then stay home to cook! We thank you, and we hope to see you soon at 1160 Mass Ave or online!

— Mary and the Salt & Olive team
