Hi, I used to live in Boston but that was many, many years ago and haven't been in over 10 years so I know a ton has changed. My husband and I will be there for about 24 hours later this week. We are staying at the W near Chinatown/Theater District and want to go to a very good restaurant for dinner AT THE BAR -- we prefer to pace out courses and share things and getting good recs from servers and always feel that sitting at the bar is best for that unless we're going to a very upscale, prix-fixe-type place.. Any ideas? Teatro looked kind of good -- I see it's same owners as Mistral, which actually was a hot place when I lived there 15 years ago! I also saw Toro was recommended by Eater. Just want a good atmosphere where we can sit at bar and good food, type of cuisine and price doesn't matter.
Then, the next day we'd like to go somewhere for steamers for lunch. All I remember is Union Oyster House -- any other ideas? We'll be leaving for Newport, RI that day. Thanks in advance.
