My wife and I just moved to Boston (Brookline, really) from Montreal and are looking for recs on places we have to hit up. We're looking for ideas of places to go to based mainly on location, with preference given to (in order):
1. Brookline (close to Coolidge Corner and Washington Square)
2. Downtown Boston
3. Cambridge, close to Harvard Square
4. Anywhere else accessible by T
Other than that, we're looking for good deals and great meals (not asking too much, I hope!). Some places we've tried so far and have enjoyed are Khao Sarn, Pho Lemongrass and Brookline Family in Brookline, 9 Tastes and Oleana in Cambridge and Legal Sea Food near the Chestnut Hill Mall in Newton. We've liked all of these places and are looking for more "authentic" Boston experiences. Along this line, we've had Regina pizzas and JPLicks ice creams and have loved them too!
So, in short, I'd like any ideas you have, as we like to eat out and will report back here on any exciting finds we may encounter along the way.
One thing we're dying to find right now is a good baguette, which has so far been impossible to find, though we're gonna try to find Clear Flour, which I hear is the best source in our area.
