Tony Boloney’s

Time for the annual Atlantic City Trip. I was down with Ellio’s and special guest Garden Pie (so many veggies). Yelp brought us to Tony Boloney’s, a takeout joint at the north end of the boardwalk. We were able to dine al fresco and watch cars being towed to clear the way for the Miss America parade. If you hit it hard the night before, Mr. Boloney’s has an extensive hangover menu not to mention erotic strombolis?!? We ordered a large cheese and dug in. Good melt, good thinness, sauce was a little too sweet/herbed for our liking. :|

In our opinion, there is no better way to celebrate and experience a culture than to dive mouth first into the traditional cuisine that ultimately shapes these well-known family traditions that all of us are so familiar with.  Given that ideology, “The Guy’s”, (Ellio, Celeste & Tombstone) decided to head out on this brisk Saint Patrick’s Day to do just that. On their endless quest for cultural enrichment and self-improvement they followed their noses, which led them to straight to Virilio’s Echo Bridge Restaurant located in Newton, Massachusetts.
