I am coming to Boston on business next weekend. I already have dinners planned for Coppa, Oleana, and Alden & Harlow.
On the day I arrive I will have a few hours free to explore on my own. And when I say explore I mean eat. I am staying at the Renaissance at the Boston Waterfront. I won't have a car but I am willing to use the Boston Subway to get around.
I was thinking of hitting Chinatown and the North End. I'm not looking for expensive. I was thinking of stops where I could get an item or two and be on my way. Gene's Flatbread sounded good. I have to map it to see where it is. What places would you recommend and what should I order? Or is there another neighborhood I should check out?
Also is there anything of food interest near the Boston Exhibit and Convention Center? I will need lunches over the weekend. Perhaps someplace I could get to by a short subway ride to grab something to go?
One more question -- is there anything worth a stop close to Coppa, Oleana and Alden & Harlow?
Thanks for all your help!
