Happy St. Paddy's Y'all.

What is your favorite boiled dinner in Boston?
I used to go to the James Gate in JP...
But that is now a memory.

Doesn't seem like too complicated of a dish to have a favorite or a must have. Unless I'm making mine wrong!

I don't think a lot of people have it more than once a year tops. And I think it's more of a home or house party meal, since it is easier to make as a large batch.

Harrington's in Wakefield is the only one i've ever had outside someone's house, and it's solid.

I ended up going to Eugene Oneills at Forest hills. Every pub within the 2 mile walking distance had a version of it.

I've like the one at Owen O'Leary's but that is probably to far for you Boston folk.

I can't stand the gray stuff. I always buy the red.

I've been eating corned beef sandwiches my whole life. And my mother would occasionally make corned beef and cabbage for dinner when I was a kid. But, prior to reading this thread, I didn't know gray corned beef existed.

After a brief google search, all I can say is no. No way would I even try it.

What I found odd is that the gray stuff is apparently "considered the authentic New England variety". Hmm. Not in the New England I know...
