My hubby, 15-month-old daughter and I will be spending a long weekend in the Boston area next week.We will be staying with family in Cambridge. They are food lovers and I'm sure they will have some great suggestions but thought I would post here since the last time they dealt with a baby was over 20 years ago :)
From what I've read here, Boston seems to be pretty baby friendly, which is great. Our daughter is not overly picky. So here's what I'm looking for.
1- good coffee. we tend to like "third wave" indie coffee shops. We'd really like a spot that's walking distance from our place (nearMassachusetts avenue and hancock) for morning coffee, or at least a really easy commute by public transit.
2- good snacks/prepared food to bring home. I would like to treat my hosts to some nice foods to show my appreciation! Read about Formaggio - any other suggestions?
3- I would love some good seafood, lobster, pysters etc. My husband won't touch the stuff, so someplace casual where I can grab and go would be great.
4- I would like to take my hosts out for a nice dinner. I was reading about Oleana, it sounds great but is it ok to bring a baby?
5- other suggestions: any musts, let me know! We love pretty much any kind of food. as long as the atmosphere is casual enough for me to enjoy taking my daughter, I'm open. Myers and Chang sounds interesting. My daughter would probably enjoy some neapolitan pizza. We plan on doing lots of sightseeing so suggestions near the aquarium, children's museum, etc. are appreciated.
Thanks in advance! :)
