Boston/Cambridge review-long!

First of all many thanks to Boston chowhounds for all their help-my husband and I ate some great food while in Boston. I'm a bit remiss as we were in Boston Aug 13-16th, but I'm finally getting this down.
Friday evening-East Coast Grill-wow!!! This place is as good as everyone says. We arrived at 7:30pm and only waited about 10 min for a table. This was probably my best meal of the trip. I had 3 jumbo grilled latin spice shrimp which were amazing as an appetizer. My husband had a half dozen littlenecks (very good) and the argula salad (he didn't like the pickled peaches on that). For dinner I had the mahi on the menu and it was incredible! Perfectly spiced and cooked-it was really moist! My husband had the seared tuna on the menu. He said it was very good, but nothing outrageously different from what he's had elsewhere.
Saturday- We were staying at Nine Zero so we had breakfast at Spire. It was nice but pricey (they do have a lower priced menu during the week). My husband had steak frites which he said was really delicious. I just had a smoothie and english muffin. For dinner we took my husband's boss to Grotto. As we had appetizers at his boss'es house we only had entrees at Grotto. Everything was very good and the service was great. I had the gnocci entree and the gnocci were very light and delicious. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs which he thought were wonderful and his boss had the filet mignon and he ate every bite. I would love to come back to this restaurant and try other courses because it was really wonderful.
Sunday- thanks to a chowhound rec we went to Henrietta's Table for brunch. This was really wonderful! The raw bar was great and everything was so fresh and tasty. It's a pretty and casual restaurant as well. We really enjoyed the brunch. For dinner we were scheduled to go to Legal Seafood but we were walking around the North End and my husband had a "taste for red sauce". We saw Pommodoro and I had remembered reading about it here. We had a really good dinner. It's definitely kind of a hole in the wall-if you have to go to the restroom you have to go to Cafe Vitorio across the street. Drink choices are limited to the red wine, the white wine and Heineken. We split the arugula salad with prociutto. shaved parmesan and a lemon vinagrette. My husband had the mussels marinara which he really loved. I had a pasta with white beans, tomatoes and arugula which was also good.
Overall a good eating weekend.
