Acclaimed Boston food writer Marc Hurwitz — he of Hidden Boston and Boston Restaurant Talk — dropped by Morning Glory on Wednesday to talk about which restaurants in the area are worth hitting up this holiday season.

We talked cozy joints, historic hangs, and places with fireplaces, and threw in a few road trip-worthy destinations for the weekend highway warriors. All in search of that perfect place to get fed, get loaded, and get festive this holiday season.
