I have a three-day trip to the greater Boston area coming up next week, and I don't want to spend it eating fast food! I'm on a budget and I won't have a car, so I need good stuff that's accessible via train. In Boston, I'll be in the following neighborhoods:
-- Hotel near JFK/UMass station
I should have at least two evenings relatively free, though, so anything I can get to (and get back to my hotel from) via the T is a must. I have a princely $50 per diem, although I'm very willing to skimp on lunch to have a nicer dinner, or vice versa.
I'm also going to have an afternoon free in Providence, near Brown. Any blowout lunch suggestions would be much appreciated!
I really do like fish and am not from New England, so bonus points for good places to get local stuff! I know this request is a bit all over the place, but I would appreciate input from fellow chowhounders.
