We'll be doing the grand college tour, and need to eat along the way.

In Boston, we’ll be staying near the Back Bay T stop and looking at schools all over town.

In NYC, we’ll be on the Upper West Side, could go to Harlem, Washington Square or anywhere in-between.

In DC, it’s Logan Circle.

We want to spend a weekend at a beach, haven’t decided if NJ or Delaware, or if we will race down to OBX or Sandbridge.

Looking for Mexican food, also Cuban, Italian, North African, Greek, Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, anything that’s meat-optional and not terribly heavy. It’s the Eastern Seaboard, so seafood would be good too. I like sushi; my son does not.

We are both fully vaccinated and masked up. Covid news from the US has been concerning from the start—so much chaos and politicization! We plan to get food to go or to eat outside or make simple things in our room/suite. He’s been showing me newly pedestrianized streets in NYC; we want to go.

Years ago, we had a wonderful little chowhound-enabled trip to Boston that included Baraka. That’s indoor seating only, iirc, so we probably won’t be stopping there. I’ll paste in the trip planning & report posts at the end of this past, because our tastes are still much the same. Are those spots still open?

Looking for simple and inexpensive (by local definitions) eateries: delis, bodegas, cafes, rooftop bars, patios, good grocery stores, pizza joints, food trucks, bakeries, breakfast spots….whatever you’ve got. Beach recs too, especially wave-centric, with a side of beach grill. Commentary on Covid policies & practices in this region is also welcome.
