Wahlberg — who last month played a show in Boston’s historic Fenway Park with his boy-band supergroup, NKOTBSB — took a break from filming his hit CBS show, Blue Bloods, to share his favorite Beantown haunts.
The Eliot Hotel
“It’s on one of the more beautiful streets in Boston, nestled in a little row of brownstones. It makes you feel like you’re part of the city, not a guest.”
“My brother Paul is the chef. It’s a lot of old recipes he learned from my mother and added his own touch to, so to me, it tastes like home.”
“I love the gnocchi with zucchini and sausage. And they have a sweet-corn-and-sausage pizza that’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted. They even have a pizza named after me, but you’ve got to go there to see what’s on it.”
Franklin Park Zoo
“It’s a true inner-city zoo. You go from traffic-riddled streets to this serene, green leafy space filled with animals. I always like visiting the gorillas and the lions.”
