Phantom Gourmet: ‘Fed’ Of The Charles

BOSTON (CBS) – The Phantom Gourmet has been in training for the Head of the Charles.

Dan Andelman takes us to some tasty restaurants that are close to the course.

Just a few strokes away from the Charles River, Basta Pasta on Western Ave. in Cambridge is the perfect place to carbo-load before, during, or after the big race.

Watch The Phantom Gourmet

Hungry rowers and spectators looking for a great sandwich can head straight to the Boathouse Deli in the back of an Irving Gas Station in Brighton.

Raising Canes on Comm. Ave. serves up a boatload of chicken fingers every day… because that’s just about all they offer on the menu.

Of course, Harvard Square restaurants will be busy this weekend as well.

For a quick bite, Phantom recommends the gourmet slices at Otto’s Pizza and some Asian noodles at Wagamama.

For more food and fun, watch the Phantom Gourmet every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on myTV 38.
