Old Boston Hand in Need of Help

KingsKetz | | Oct 30, 2011 08:12 PM

In another century....truly...I was a college student in Boston. I knew my way around the back alleys and the little known places and always had a great meal. But that was many moons ago.

Now my husband and I are coming up to Boston from NYC for the post Thanksgiving Day weekend. We're staying at the Boston Hyatt Regency near Chinatown from Friday night and leaving Monday. It's my husband's birthday that weekend so it's a bit of a celebration. We're only now in the process of making our plans and I realize I don't have a clue as to where to have dinners or pitstops while we're in town.

I'd love to check out someplace in Chinatown. I printed the "crawl" that appeared here so I guess I'll get some inspiration there. But we'd like to go out for a "nice" dinner on Saturday night. I think seafood or Italian food would be preferred by him though I can always get into a good lobster.

Also would love to know if some of the old standbys: Durgin Park, Regina, Legal Seafood are worth checking into again or if there are other standbys that will stand us better??

Any places that are particularly good for late night hanging out will be greatly appreciated as well.

We're traveling up by train so any restaurant suggestions should be accessible by T, cab or walking. We're willing to head to Cambridge - always fun to walk around there - but not too far to the burbs on this trip at least. If I'm being too limiting or there's someplace great we shouldn't miss please tell me.

Thanks in advance for your help!
