My wife and I will be in Boston for 4 days next week. Unfortunately we will miss the Fourth of July celebrations, and the Red Sox are out of town, so this is primarily a visit to historical and museum interests padded with local food options. Please advise if I am on the right path as far as selecting good representatives of Boston's seafood and Italian establishents. Houston has Mexican/BBQ/steaks/Asian well represented so Italian and seafood other than shrimp will be our focus. I have attempted to follow recommendations from CH.
Monday late afternoon/early evening: Antico Forno
Tuesday lunch: Neptune Oyster and dinner: Petit Robert
Wednesday lunch: Trattoria Toscano and dinner: Legal Seafood, Cambridge
Thursday breakfast/lunch Red's Sandwich Shop, Salem, and dinner; either B&G Oyster or The Butcher Shop.
Tuesday is Freedom Trail, North End strolling kind of day. Wednesday we have 10:00 timed entry to MFA (hence Trattoria Toscana) and are meeting an old friend in Cambridge who suggested Legal Seafood. We are seeing the witch museum/House of 7 Gables in Salem which explains Red's, but we are not actually locked in on any particular venue other than Legal Seafood. Are these good to go, or can other places provide more memorable Boston eating experiences? Thanks for all suggestions.
