STAFF MEAL

You don't have to be Mr. Snooty Monocle Wearer to appreciate history anymore. You just need an appetite. The Loring-Greenough House in Jamaica Plain was constructed in 1760 and is still open to the public for tours and finer things like classical-guitar concerts. Confiscated by colonial forces to be used as a hospital for the Continental Army, the only surviving 18th-century residence in the historic Sumner Hill neighborhood is now also home to Staff Meal and their house-made head cheese. This partnership, we imagine, came about through the acknowledgement of mutual benefits rather than, you know, war. Let us be thankful for that, eh? And you know what goes good with stories about old dead white guys? A pint of chowder, arepas, and a meaty menu that varies weekly.

STAFF MEAL | Loring-Greenough House in Jamaica Plain or SoWa (designated days for each found on Web site). Times seem to vary but seem to generally open at 10 am in SoWa and at 4 pm in JP | 617.209.9244 | staffmealboston.com

  •   THE BEST OF BOSTON'S MOBILE CUISINE  |  June 09, 2011
    Summer in Boston traditionally means exploring the city, getting sunburned, and ironically (but totally seriously) drinking Mike's Hard Lemonade. But now that meals-on-wheels mania has put the boot on our fair city, it also means chasing down every food truck in town.
  •   CARNIVORES AND HERBIVORES MAKING PEACE -- ON A BLANKET  |  June 13, 2011
    When dinosaurs roamed the Earth, the carnivores often ate the herbivores. But then we evolved. Today, meat-eaters and plant-eaters can coexist — and even share a blanket for a jolly picnic in the park.
