Hi - I'm a big time NYC foodie and would love some local recommendations for a trip I'm making to Boston in early July. Looking for fun, entertaining restaurants with unusual fare - either ethnic or simply a cutting-edge chef - but NOT outrageously expensive. Like finding new, out of the way spots that deserve attention.
Also, bar/lounge recommendations would be appreciated. In terms of particulars on that score, I'll be with another mid-thirties gal pal. We're both single and straight, looking for really gorgeous cocktails and a sophisticated atmosphere - sans a meat market scene.
