Rhode Trip

Speak Rhode Island-ese and order the cabinet at Cusser’s Roast Beef & Seafood


Here’s a vocab lesson for those not fluent in Rhode Island-ese: A cabinet—like the one found at the new Cusser’s Roast Beef & Seafood takeout window at Moon Bar—is a milkshake with rich coffee flavor that transcends translation. Instead of the usual sugar-bomb of Autocrat coffee syrup, co-owner Vincent Vela goes the craft route. The team uses George Howell beans for a cold brew concentrate, then adds vanilla ice cream, whole milk and a vanilla simple syrup. Pair the coffee cabinet with one of Cusser’s hot dogs, lobster rolls or other New England classics for a bit of beachy bliss in Back Bay.


Cusser’s coffee cabinet, $6 at Cusser’s Roast Beef & Seafood, 304 Stuart St., Boston (617-917-5193) moonbarboston.com
