Left LA, CA a week ago Thursday and landed in here late Wednesday. Thursday, in POURING rain, looked at and dismissed places in Back Bay, Jamaica Plains, Cambridge and Somerville. Decided finding a place was just too darn hard. Near hotel in Waltham found a place with a LOT more bang for our few bucks and newly renovated. Includes shuttle to Alewife. Will keep suggestions provided by you hounds for Somerville and elsewhere--everything really IS close. Moving in today.
My search of this board for Waltham was one reason we decided to stay here. Moody and Main have lots of great ethnic spots to try. Your preferences between Ritcey Seafood and Waltham Seafood? How about between New Mother India and Little India? What to do about Chinese? See there are lots of Chinese spots here but didn't see a strong preference in earlier postings? Thank you SO much for all the fantastic info you've given so far. Makes transition MUCH easier!
