One of Boston’s best kept secrets, although it is not much of a secret anymore, is Bodega. I’m moving away in a few weeks, and the memories I have of this place and the people I’ve met there will be among my best times in Boston. If you know what Bodega is all about and you’re anything like me, you’ll know why I feel the way I do. However, for those looking for more of a synopsis of what the place is all about, well, I’ll do my best without giving too much away.

There’s a reason this is a Boston “must see.”
