I just want to compliment all of the locals who have given so many people great advice on this website. I have been reading the posts for the last couple of days and am simply amazed at all the time and attention to detail you all have gladly offered. It makes me even more excited to visit Boston for the first time as a chowhound! :-)
I live in Denver and have never been to the East Coast, nor have I eaten a lobster. But I am VERY excited about food and can't wait to eat my way through Boston (and see some sites too).
You all have educated me immensely in the past couple of days. Thanks so much!
