We're visiting Boston this weekend and want to take our daughter and her boyfriend out for dinner. Blue Ginger is booked until the next coming - what are the other interesting places in the Boston/Wellesley area? I'm looking for restaurants unique to the Boston area (i.e., Barcode). We have all the boring, overpriced chains here at home (Mortons, Palm, PF Chang).
Also looking for good fried clams, chowda, etc (NOT Legal Seafood) in Boston.
Any good Sunday brunch places?
