We are heading into Boston from the burbs tomorrow w/ our adventurous eating 3 year old. Plan to do some shopping around Newbury/Copley; hit the garden so he can "ride" the make way for duckling statues, etc. We were just in Chinatown last weekend (Dim Sum at New Shanghai, just OK but the spicy salted shrimp were awesome!) so don't want to repeat Chinatown. Where else should we go instead? We want good food, causal atmosphere but want to avoid Fanueil Hall. Maybe the North End? A really great deli? Mexican or Tapas?
Any advice with details would be appreciated!
