"When it snows in Boston, one of my favorite things to do is shuffle to the South End and pull up a bar seat at The Butcher Shop, where I'll tuck into some snacks while the snow swirls outside. The cured meats are divine and the wine list is fun and interesting. But it's their take on the simple hot dog that gets me every time. Talk about elevating comfort food—this is a tasty wiener."
