My husband and I are heading to Boston JUly 4-8th. We will be staying at the Marriott Long Wharf. Having just read a thread regarding another couple, I have some ideas about where to eat but need suggestions that cater to our tastes a bit more. We are from New Orleans and love dining out. We have been bombarded with some outstanding new restaurants here that are reflecting the new trend of top notch chefs with local ingredients while keeping costs mid range. We are looking to spend up to $150 with wine but not every night. We do NOT have great Italian here, so that is a priority for me. I also love a good steak, but want to avoid the standard but top notch steak houses. My husband loves seafood. It looks like Neptune Oyster is the place to go for that. We also love Ethiopian or would be happy to try some other ethnic food for lunch.
We also love local’s only type places (dives are good!). Any recommendations for our stay would be much appreciated. It looks like opinionatedchef gave some great suggestions, so I am looking at those. My husband is the chow hounder, so it’s my first time. Hope I gave the right info to get the right info. Thanks!
