Christine Liu

The summer brought another first for Mystery Meet: an outdoor event. We partnered with The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy to give foodies an opportunity to try ten trucks all in one night! Christine Liu of The Discreet Hedonist was our guest host, and Jesse Brackenbury from the Greenway was instrumental in making it all happen. Despite less than cooperative weather – the rain barely held off – 30 foodies marched across downtown to taste the finest street fare the city of Boston has to offer.

February 2011 Dinner: Flavor Tripping

by Seth Resler

Miracle Berry

It all started when a friend sent me a 2008 New York Times article about “flavor tripping.” You eat a Miracle Berry, which binds with your taste buds in a way that makes anything acidic taste very sweet. Lemons taste like lemonade, sour cream tastes like yogurt and vinegar tastes like cider.

January 2011 Dinner: Hell Night

by Seth Resler


We kicked of 2011 with our hottest Mystery Meet yet – literally! We journeyed to East Coast Grill in Inman Square for one of their legendary Hell Nights. After signing our souls away, we played Russian Roulette with spicy meatballs, gobbled up the Wings of Mass Destruction, and choked back tears as we sucked down Inner Beauty Hot Sauce. Most of us survived.
