Chowhounders - My husband and I are heading to Boston for a quick trip. I have never been and he has only been once in his youth. We are definitely foodies and would love some suggestions for our trip since it needs to be a quick representation of what the city has to offer. We only have Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday through the evening on our own to explore. Could you please suggest some great restaurants for the following? We really need help!
1. Specialty food store or snack place (i.e. bakery, chocolate, gourmet shop, etc.) for mid-afternoon snack
2. Pre-dinner drink and appetizer place
3. Dinner place
4. Breakfast place
5. Lunch place near Fenway (we are planning to check out the baseball game)
Some things that might help... We are staying at the Taj Hotel near the Public Garden. We love wine. For dinner, we would expect spend $20-30 for entrees but love finding those hidden treasures known only by the local that satisfy tastes and budgets alike. We are open to all types of food but particularly like Italian, French, Asian, and especially fusion! Our tastebuds are in your hands!
