Help! DC Foodie in Boston for about 28 hours.

Hello all, we’re flying up for a show at the Paradise Rock Club in June and have about four meals to plan. Don’t even get me started on how it actually costs less to fly roundtrip to Boston and pay for a hotel than seeing them in DC…but now I’m getting excited for the meal possibilities!

We won’t have a car, but we’ll be down to take public transport wherever we need to go. I’m a sucker for anything from the sea, and we’d like some “authentic fare,” but I know the tiffs that phrase usually causes on the DC CH board. :)

After taking a quick look at the boards, we’re definitely grabbing a Speed’s dog immediately after we land, so after that we have dinner before the show and breakfast/ lunch on our second day to plan. We fly back out around 5:30pm. Of Eastern Standard and Neptune, which would be best for lunch on the second day? Or are they better for dinner? I’d like to do something a bit more casual for dinner on the 1st night since we have to catch a show at 8pm. Anything on the water with brews and decent pub food? What about B&G Oysters?

Also, we won’t be able to make it up to the Clam Box, but is there something comparable in the city proper? And we’re major suckers for legit diners: any gems? I know it’s hard without our hotel location (still trying to lock that down) but we’ll travel wherever we need to go to get a good meal…even with hungover, hungry tummies!

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
