Shopping Trip: South End Formaggio

I took a little field trip over to the South End two weeks ago to meet up with Ricardo Rodriguez about the Urban Showhouse he’s organizing (more on that later). I stopped into Hudson, tried to figure out what movie they were filming in front of The Buttery, and grabbed a sandwich at Formaggio. It’s neighborhood shops like this that make the South End a tempting place to live. (Not that I could give up the orderliness of Back Bay and proximity to the Esplanade, but still.) It’s a wonderful gourmet gem – so picturesque – and chock full of inspirational ingredients. Plus, my ham and butter pressé was de-licious.
