Comments on our Trip to Boston

Thanks to all who had responded to our original posting of recommendations.

Here is the results of our trip to Boston from LA:


We were at Faneuil Hall & Quincey Market when all the families that were in town for graduations or people watching NHL or NBA games were there. He had lunch at a restaurant that we can remember the name, but was across from Salty Dog. Good service & food. Had good lobster roll.

Dinner was not bad, but not great. Went with Chowhound recommendation of Kingfish Hall. Sorry this place is overrated . Wife had the Crispy Lobster which was underwhelming. I had the lobster ravioli,which was OK. The service was great. Our waitress was very fun.


We had the Pajama Brunch at 647 Treamont. The food was great. Everything seemed to work. Wife had the Papas Pravas & I had the Crispy prosciutto Benedict.. It was VERY busy, but the service was great.

After a tour of Fenway Park we had dinner at Eastern Standard. OK we had to wait 45 minutes, but you had all the graduates of several universities & the Boston Sox fans. The food was great. Had bone morrow was great. Service, which was overwhelmed was very good & still spot on.


Had dinner in Quincey (where we were staying). Had dinner at the Fat Cat in Quincey. Sorry, but was worst meal of our trip. My mac &cheese with lobster was a huge bowl of Kraft mac & cheese with a couple pieces of badly cooked lobster. Wife had a so-so bunch of wings.


After visit to JFK Library we went to Cambridge. We had a tapas type meal at the Charles Hotel restaurant, Rialto. We did the bar menu. We did 2 3 plates for $10. Roasted peppers, Chicken liver pate, fried olives, Burrata… olive tapenade, and a two other I can't remember. It all worked. Service was great.

Hope to come back to Boston some day.
