American Way: Where do you like to play in the city?
Brady: Closer to me, the TPC, designed by Arnold Palmer, is a fun new course. They've already played a PGA tournament there. It's challenging, with some nice length and a solid layout. And it will get better as it matures. It also has a bit of land, so when you're on the 9th hole, you're not falling on top of another hole. Brookline, probably four miles outside the city, is one of the more popular courses. It has so much tradition to it, with so many stories.
American Way: When you're done playing 18 holes, where do you go to chow down with the fellas?
Brady: There are great pizza places all over the city, but there's a very good one, Omega Pizza, over by Gillette Stadium. Everything I've ever had there, I love. The East Coast has a lot of these small pizza places that specialize in "grinders" or hoagies, along with stuff like chicken tenders and fries. When you hang with a bunch of 300-pound linemen, you tend to find the places that are the greasiest and serve the most food.
There's another place nearby called Fresh Catch, a great seafood spot. Another one the guys know is Kelly's Roast Beef. They make the best roast beef sandwiches. Those are some places where the big boys want to go eat. There's also a great lunch spot, Fat Belly Deli, near my place. They put so much meat on the sandwiches. They've got a great little menu, too. The steak and lamb tips are out of this world.
American Way: Do you get recognized everywhere you go in Boston?
Brady: I used to walk around pretty anonymously after our first Super Bowl win. Now it's definitely tougher.
American Way: So, where do you go when you want to people-watch?
