6 Delicious Ways to Warm Up This Winter


Well, it finally happened: Ski season has officially arrived — along with the first big snowstorm of the winter. Besides skiing of course, hot drinks and warm dishes are the perfect partner for all this snow.

While we’re all for the colder temperatures, we also like to warm up with delicious food and drink. So we’ve spent some time scouring the town for the most delicious and most satisfying ways to beat the chill—here are six of our favorites.

Boneyard Saloon: creamy tomato basil soup

Boneyard’s tomato soup is a rich and savory way to warm up. And what goes better with tomato soup than grilled cheese? Luckily, that’s exactly what you’ll get on the side when you order it.

This pastel-colored drink is made with beet root powder, a coconut-almond milk mixture and a bit of honey. It’s a healthy, caffeine-free, and even kid-friendly refreshment after a morning on the slopes.

Shabu: shabu shabu

We highly suggest ordering this Main Street eatery’s namesake dish: shabu shabu. This is a style of nabemono, or Japanese hot pot, where thin slices of tender meat, noodles and fresh vegetables, such as shiitake mushrooms, shredded cabbage, julienne carrots, are cooked together in a large open pot at the table. Choose from tofu, seafood, chicken, beef or a combo. Like fondue, the ingredients are served raw and cooked tableside during the meal.

Ritual: drinking chocolate

Ritual’s hot chocolate and mochas are made with their 70 percent cacao drinking chocolate. It’s just sweet enough — without being cloyingly sweet like commercial hot chocolate mixes. Made from the whole cocoa bean, it’s higher quality than other mixes since none of the cocoa butter is removed.

Freshie’s: New England clam “chowdah”

Savor a taste of the Northeast at Freshie’s. Their creamy, classic chowder has clams, potatoes and is served with oyster crackers. If you’re a lobstah lovah, go for the creamy lobster bisque.

Townshend’s Tea: matcha latte

An earthy yet tasty matcha latte will give you steady, long-lasting energy — without the crash that comes along with caffeine. Townshend’s high-quality matcha tea can be mixed with dairy or non-dairy milk for the perfect morning or afternoon pick-me-up.
