Boston's 9 Best Bacon DishesBy Scott Kearnan | May 12, 2014 By Scott Kearnan | May 12, 2014
We've lived through cupcake crazes. We've endured the Era of Kale. But America's love affair with bacon is a timeless thing, so we've gathered a handful of new and classic plates around town that feature it - either proudly and unadulterated, or in some creative contexts. Still want more? Mark your calendars for 10 AM on Friday, May 16. That's when $47 tickets go on sale here for the annual Bacon and Beer Festival, a fundraiser for Community Servings and Lovin' Spoonfuls that will feature 60-plus participating brewers and restaurants, including The Gallows, Merrill & Co., Aquitaine and The Salty Pig. (There's even a bacon-themed art show.) They always sell out within minutes - but if for any reason you can't score them, consider this guide a sizzling backup plan.
