I'll be in Boston for 4 nights in early November, along with my parents. I've done some research and hope you can give me some advice and help on my very preliminary restaurant schedule:
Hamersley's Bistro. I never order chicken at a restaurant, but I had it the last time I was in town (probably close to 5 years ago) and I still dream about that dish. This is a must-do for me; all I can think about is those chunks of yummy garlic and that ridiculously good sauce the chicken came in.
Toro: My parents and I love tapas and make a point to try a tapas place when we go away. I'd like to try a Ken Oringer spot, but it sounds like the waits are interminable. If we go on a weeknight and show up at, say 7 or 8pm, are we talking a 20 minute wait? Closer to an hour? If it's really that bad, we'll just have to pass.....I'm hoping it's not too bad.
Taranta: I just love the North End, but I'm trying to avoide a southern Italian type of restaurant as I can get that in NY. I love the idea that it stands out a bit due to the Peruvian dishes and the pork chop sounds phenomenal.
Hungry Mother: I love southern-style food; my parents loved the food in Charleston, so I think they'd like this too. The menu sounds yummy to me - only question is if it's too limited for them.
**I'd like to try Craige on Main, but that might be too expensive if we are also going to Hamersley's.
Sportello - the pastas sound delicious and I love pasta;
I know, it's too many for 4 nights, but I want to keep my options open should one or more fall through.
Has to be Neptune Oyster ............
Thank you in advance!
