I had to French onion soup, mushroom ravioli, and a side of brussel sprouts. The food was outstanding. I kept using the brussel sprouts to sop up the sauce they put on the ravioli. It was tremendous! The beer, a porter, was so good I had two. The waitress was prompt, friendly, courteous, and attentive. Fantastic experience and I will... More

Our experience was 100 Percent positive. David explained, in detail, what he discerned of our cutlery set, about 100 years old, and what he could do. When we picked it up, all was as promised. In addition, we had an educational experience. David is engaging, given the opportunity and an educator in his specialty.

Please note: Stoddard's has been in the Nonantum area of Newton (5 minutes off the Mass Pike) for a few years!!! Stoddard's is the gold standard for sharpening knives the old fashioned way, by hand. Any home chef will need to have his/her knives sharpened every few years (and not just honed with a steel). The store also has a... More

Stoddards has now relocated to Watertown Street in Newton's village of Nonantum. It may take a bit of searching to find it, but it'll be worth the effort. You'll find an expert knife-sharpening service, free advice on caring for your knives, terrific customer service (they made sure I had my knives in time for the holidays and managed to repair...

Stoddard's Cutlery is now at Chestnut Hill Mall on Rt. 9, not downtown. It is the oldest cutlery shop in America. You won't find a better place to shop for excellent kitchen knives, get expert knife sharpening (at reasonable prices), and super-knowledgeable, friendly, no-pressure staff. The shop also carries a small selection of items they find excellent--a great ice-cream scoop,... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
