This particular contest is less about food (of which O’Malias has an enormous variety) and more about location and demographics. Its Mass Ave location is smack-dab in the center of one of the city’s most vibrant cultural districts, making it the go-to grocery spot for the hip kind of young professionals who can afford a place on Mass Ave. We have to admit, a recent trip by one editorial staff member turned up an unusually high number of good-looking, well-dressed singles, even in the middle of the day. Besides, what better way to make a lasting connection than by bonding over your love of butterkase?
