Coming from NY, these posts for Boston did not fail. Over one weekend, we hit many of the Boston chowhound choices. Eastern Standard (acceptable), Aquitaine (excellent) Regina's in the North End (excellent) and Deluxe (?) (good).
Looking for comfortable mid priced late dinner. For those who are familiar with NY, basically we're looking for a Blue Ribbon, Momofuku Ssam, Freeman's, Five Points, hell I guess even a Schiller's type place if the vibe is good. any kind of food, it's the quality and vibe that's important. Not divey (I like dives btw, just not the occasion for it), not meat-packing annoying, not touristy antiseptic. Places where we get a good lively neighborhood vibe with some good food. We're all in our mid-thirties designers living in the East Village and Lower East Side.
By the way, sorry for the NY references, but I don't know Boston that well and from past posts a lot of people from Boston know NY well enough to know what I mean.
