Looking forward to a solid week of feasting in your glorious city. I like contemporary casual places that prioritize food over fawning servers and fancy white tablecloths. Local/sustainable ingredients are a big plus. Aiming to spend $40-$75 pp on dinners, $25-$49 pp on lunch (including tax and tip - the wife and I aren't heavy drinkers).

With some extensive research, I've created a list of 19 restaurants. Looking to narrow this down to about 12. Would appreciate any advice on what I should nix, what I must try, what I've missed, and why.

Realize a couple of these places are a schlep, but we're here to eat so we'll happily make a pilgrimage to Burt's or Dougs. We'll be staying near the Hancock building.

Thanks!
