After watching the Davide episode, was thinking... where else could Ramsay take his cliched, barechested martyrdom.... Leaving out the easy pickins of Faneuil Hall and the North End, I'll nominate:
Christopher's and the Cambridge Common - decent locations, both with coveted outdoor space, same owners and same exceptionally average menus.
Savant Project - menu and service are horrible and its too bad because this area could use another good nom spot and the vibe is fairly cool (and its got a PATIO!)
Jacob Wirth's - the bones here are great but the menu needs to be deAmericanized
Blue Wave Cafe - With all the bigger names moving in to Fort Point, Blue Wave needs to go byebye. Crappy food, crappy service, crappy vibe.
(by no means exhaustive or most in need, just 5 that come to mind!)
