I'm heading to Boston for a meeting in February. Most of the meals are taken care of, with the exception of the night we arrive (a Thursday). Typically my coworkers and I eat together the night we get in. Having grown up in NH, I'm more or less familiar with Boston, but having never spent much time in the area since high school, I don't know much about the restaurant scene. I'm looking for a good place to dine with about 8 people near the Hynes Convention Center, where our meeting takes place.
Unfortunately, our expense cap of $40 for dinner (gotta love nonprofits) rules out Atlantic Fish and Stephanie's as nearby choices. Any suggestions for that part of town? Keep in mind I'm going to be with a bunch of people from south of the Mason-Dixon line. They do not walk in the cold very well for very long, and we'd like to minimize taxi use.
BTW - yes, I would like to have a few words with the person who decided to put our winter meeting in Boston.
