Marathon Monday Dining: Deuxave

The Boston Marathon- 26.2 miles of running, a test of endurance, a challenge for the body and soul.  The day of the Marathon may just be one of the best days to live in this city- for some its day of extreme physical challenge, for others its a day to cheer and encourage, and for others it is the official start to the Spring season.  I, yearly, fall into the second two categories.  Given that I abhor running (truly) I safely cheer from the sidelines and relish the day and all of its festivities.  This year, the highly acclaimed, ever delicious, Deuxave will be joining into the fun by hosting their first Marathon Monday party!

Opening at 11:00 am, Deuxave's fantastic patio will offer views of the runners in their final push, and their kitchen will be serving up some fantastic fare:
