New to Boston, where are the best places to eat?

I'm a Manhattan expat - help me find new places to dine :)

So, my last post showed my ignorance well - "Best places to eat under $100 per person excluding alcohol", but thank you for letting me know that Boston isn't like Manhattan in that respect, and most places will be had for under $100 a person.

For those that go to Manhattan and are familiar with the scene there, my favourite place for lunch is Jean-Georges, my favourite place for dinner is Per Se NY or Daniel NYC. I usually eat a prix fixe menu and I am allergic to ALL fish and seafood, so I need a restaurant which is accommodating for this.

Now I'm living in Cambridge full-time and would like to experience the Boston/Cambridge scene at its best.

So, can we make a list of the best places to eat in Boston?

French cuisine: would it be L'espalier? Where else?
Italian cuisine: Would it be via matta? Where else?
Bagels: Where can I get a good bagel in Boston and Cambridge? I love Ess-a Bagel in Manhattan
Bistro:
Deli:
French bakery:
Mediterranean:
Asian:

Can you help me complete this list? Add as many restaurants as you want. I'm always looking for suggestions and I'm pleased to write up reviews of each place I go to. :)

Thanks!
