Serving soups, stews, dips and even salads in a bread bowl amps up the flavors and tastes even more than just enjoying the dishes with bread on the side. These Boston spots make a mean bread bowl with only the best options inside of them. Slurp up the soup or other dishes and rip apart the bread that soaks up the flavors of the soup, salad or stew at these five area spots, each with their own specialty.
