My husband and I will be in Boston for our 2nd visit, and I'm looking for good places to eat/hang out. We're staying at the Boston Park Plaza, near the Commons. We're fairly low-key people who simply love to eat (and generally plan our trips around food), so I'm not looking for anything too "scene-y," just great food. Low or mid-price range would be best, and really, any type of food is great, so long as it's the best of its kind. We're not afraid to walk a bit or take transportation within reason.
Last time we were here, we enjoyed Upper Crust pizza (I think we ate 3 large Harvard Squares that weekend--we missed East Coast-style pizza, stuck out here in the deep-dish hinterlands like we are), Rabia's, Mike's Pastries, and a trip up to Bartley's Burgers in Cambridge, if that gives you any conception of what we like.
We'll be at Fenway on Sunday, and possibly up in Cambridge on Monday.
Thanks! And don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking for Chicago recommendations!
