We'll be driving into Boston Saturday and will be staying at the Back Bay area. My only recollection of Boston had faded away since my last and only visit in 1990.
1. Now, I'm looking for a moderately-priced restaurant (i.e. $30/entree tops) for dinner this Saturday. Ideally, the place would be where Boston locals would like to go to; American, Italian or French; food quality is more important to us than ambiance; no more than 30 minutes of driving/walking/public transportation from Back Bay; decent wine list.
2. On Sunday, we will be meeting up with a friend who's in Cambridge, near or about the Harvard Law School area. We're looking for a nice, relatively quiet place to have brunch anywhere near or around the Cambridge/Harvard vicinity.
Thank you, in advance, for your response.
