I thought I posted this already, but it isn't showing up. Apologies if this is a duplicate.
I am originally from Connecticut and lived in Maine for a while as a kid so I spent a lot of time in Boston. I also worked in Boston early in my career, but I haven't been there for a long time. I need some miles to requalify for Executive Platinum on American Airlines and SO hasn't spent time in Boston, so we're heading up there (from Dallas) for two and a half days at the end of December. We will probably stay near Faneuil Hall.
My favorite memories of New England food are lobster, Indian pudding, fried claims and prime rib at Durgin Park. It's been a LONG time since I was at Durgin Park and I understand that it's actually become touristy. We will probably stop by for "old time sake." Any recommendations for New England or Italian (North End) places to eat?
