HI... We're in downtown for five days, but are devotees of unusual, detour-worthy, and where-the-locals go (without tourists) eateries. Open to all cuisines, all ideas, preferably not astronomical. We have a very open-minded 17-year -old with us, so no black-tie. We have a car, too.
For example, we went to Il Fornello at Church/Wellsley and greatly enjoyed a fab, interesting, reasonable meal.
Have at it! Suggestions? Thanks in advance.
