My husband and I will be traveling to Boston next weekend (Oct 8-10). We are looking for tips for places that are not too touristy, but capture the feel of the GBA. We love seafood so we think we're heading to the right city :) In Toronto, we love everything from French bistro to pho, Ethiopian to neapolitan pizza. Are there beer/wine/food festivals in the area that weekend? Good markets to check out?
All we care about is the chow - it needs to be delicious. Decor, ambiance, service are secondary. It would be great to get your best 'cheap eats' near our hotel (we're staying at the Club Quarters on Devonshire St).
Please give us a range of ideas for brunch, coffee, lunch and dinners. Are restaurants typically open early/late? Do takeout? We have our 10-month-old with us and he's used to fine dining (we aim for early dinners), but if we don't get a good vibe, we'll leave him with my mother who is along with us for the ride.
Oh, and please let us know if we need to make a reso!
