Perfect weekend in Boston?

edgrimley | Sep 12, 2004 06:36 PM

We're coming in for two night, mid-October, from Philly. We're very much looking forward to the visit.

We're thinking of staying in Cambridge and are looking for 3-4 of the most memorable Boston dining experiences.

I figure we've got -

1 breakfast
1 Sunday brunch
1 lunch
2 dinners

I'd like to go to a blend of local classics with character, something seafood-oriented, and a not-to-be-missed dinner on Saturday. On the spectrum between quaint, neighborhood gems and superior-service hotel restaurants, we prefer the neighborhoody-end of things.

Ye Olde Union Oyster House sounds great for the character. just did a nice seafood-centric story in the Travel section.

Some of the recommendations included...

Durgin-Park.340 Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston. 617-227-2038;

• Ye Olde Union Oyster House.41 Union St., Boston. 617-227-2750;

• Legal Seafoods. 255 State St., Boston, 617-227-3115, and other locations.

• Blackfin Chop House & Raw Bar. 116 Huntington Ave., Boston. 617-247-2400;

• B&G Oysters.550 Tremont St., Boston. 617-423-0550;

• The Barking Crab.88 Sleeper St., Boston. 617-426-2722;

Thanks in advance for any help.
