I'm a 42 year old food blogger from Bangalore, India, and am going to be visiting Boston between the 28th Oct and the 3rd Nov with my husband. We are flying in and will not have our own transportation. I'm interested in food experiences that are either "typically Boston/new England" or those that are unavailable here at home. Having done curated culinary tours in Italy I am not so interested in Italian food (but am interested in the evolution of Italian to American-Italian). The food things that are on my "wish list":
- a raw oyster bar (was thinking Neptune) but my husband is allergic so there needs to be something for him too.
- lobster rolls (was thinking from a food truck?)
- clam chowder (of course)!!
- craigie on main (what are prices like?)
- sowa market
- food trucks (I think most are in back bay?)
- meet a local chef
- eat fresh sushi
We are not party people and we both have joint issues so endless walking is out of the question. It'll have to be a combination of the T and cabs. In terms of budget we'd like to keep it to $20 per head for lunch and about $30 per head for dinner.
These are the other things I thought would be interesting. I'd be so grateful for any advice from Boston hounds who could help me weave the food into the other stuff.
- whale watch
- harvard square
- beacon hill
- north end
- a quiet island/beach
I have seen opinionatedchef's post about localities and restaurants, Btw.
