Greetings Boston Foodies: we will be spending three nights in early April at the Westin Copley Place, and I'm looking for dinner recommendations within walking distance where we wouldn't feel out of place with a toddler. (We'll go on the early side, and she usually does very well at restaurants so long as she has some good bread to eat -- sometimes we even make it to dessert!) We tend to like modern bistro fare, especially local seafood, and market-driven seasonal menus; a nice patio or outside seating often works well with the little one in tow, but that's not essential (and it may be too chilly anyhow).
Went to Hamersley's Bistro many years ago and loved it, but not sure it's the right place to go with a toddler. (It also seems quite pricey -- i.e., appetizers around $20.) But I mention it to give an idea of the kind of food and atmosphere we enjoy.
Am intrigued by Island Creek Oyster Bar -- I realize it's too far to walk, but it sounds really good. Any thoughts? Thanks!
