I have time for dinner before catching a flight from Logan next sunday(have a 9 pm flight). I'll be leaving Worcester around 430 pm, and will have a rented car, and will be eating by myself. I want to try something good (it doesn't have to be fancy) on my way home, preferably somewhere close to I-90, so I won't get lost ;) (although I will have a GPS)
From reading the Boston board, I was thinking Neptune Oyster sounds great - but how is the driving and parking around it? (I don't know Boston at all)
Another option, if I want to play it safe, is to go with a standard chain: eg: Cheescake factory (which I am quite fond of), Legal Seafood, or PF Chang - I noticed they have locations around Framingham or Natick, which seem to be halfway from Worcester to Boston. I know there's even a Legal Seafood in Logan airport, but if I want to be returning the rental car around 630 pm, there's still time for an early dinner en route.
Since I-90 seems to enter Boston from the west, are there any good chowish places near the freeway while I'm driving in? I'm happy with "cheap and cheerful", with small local places, ethnic cuisine, etc - I'm a pretty adventurous eater. I guess it would be fun to try something unique to the Boston area. I saw mentions of Eastern Standard, and their menu sounds great, but I think it's in Cambridge - I'm not sure if that's kind of out of the way for me?
