Seven Meals in Boston - Comments? Suggestions?

deubster | | Aug 14, 2006 02:38 PM

Wife & I will be in Boston 9/9 to 9/13, arriving 5'ish on Saturday evening, so I have Saturday dinner plus lunch and dinner on Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday (Wed we go to the Cape, early Thursday we head to Maine). Staying at Park Plaza, and all meals must be easy distance from T, preferrably in conjunction with our touring - in other words, she will be mad at me if I spend inordinate amount of time traveling to & from meals. Our touring plans include Duck Tour, Prudential Tower, Newbury St. area, Freedom Trail, Harvard Square area & Glass Flowers, Beacon Hill walking tour. Have 5 PM Sunday tickets to Blue Man Group. As eaters, I'm adventurous, she not so much and she won't eat any pettable critters (veal, rabbit, duck, venison, lamb, etc.) The 7 meals are:

Legal Seafood - fixed in stone - this is Saturday night, right across from hotel, will retire early after long day of travel.

Durgin-Park - I figured it for lunch on our Freedom Trail tour - don't really want to change this.

Pizzaria Regina - lunch or dinner, as fits plans. This is also pretty much a must do.

Chinatown - lunch or dinner. King Fung Garden, Peach Farm. Maybe Jumbo Seafood, East Ocean City.

Harvard Square - lunch. Originally planned Bartleys Burgers until I read lots of posts here. Need suggestions for this one.

North End Italian - dinner. I have a list of modest-priced, mostly red sauce places - Antico Forno, La Summa, Pomodoro, Cibo, Mother Anna's, Daily Catch, Artu, L'Osteria, Al Dente, Giacomo's.

Seventh Meal Unknown - could try another NE Italian, or walk to Franklin Cafe. Helmand or Addis Red Sea sound interesting.

Only the first 3 are fixed. Will need the most help with Harvard Square and the 7th meal. I'm thinking Chinatown will probably be a lunch, so all 3 lunches will be decided (Durgin-Park, Harvard Square, Chinatown). Suggestions?
