Just came back from a long weekend in Boston. Was there for a bridge tournament, and exigencies sharply curtailed Chowhound explorations. I can come to one fundamental conclusion: whenever possible, get out of Copley Place.
I did get to Elephant Walk and liked it for the most part. There was a tendency in many dishes to over-sweetness, especially in the Mee Siem, but also in many of the sauces. On the other hand, all salads were beautifully seasoned (love those green herbs) and stews were nice, too.
My single favorite dish was a spectacular pear tart.
