I'm surprising my husband with a trip to Boston for his birthday in April. He's been once but didn't really get to experience any of the Boston cuisine. He and I are both foodies and love a good meal, from dives to 5-star restaurants, we just appreciate good food. In starting my search for must-try restaurants in Boston, I've found the task to be a little daunting. It seems if you asked 5 people their top 3 restaurants, you'd get 15 different answers. While that's great, it's also makes it very difficult to narrow my search. We will be in the city for 2 1/2 days and will need to find 2 breakfast spots, 2 or 3 lunch spots, and 3 dinner spots. The one place I've found thus far that looks right up our alley is Ten Tables. I understand the Chef's Table is the place to sit and the Tasting Menu is the way to go. I don't mind to pay as long as the food merits the cost. I'd love to have seafood at least once, if not more. We're not big on oysters or clams but we do love all fish, shrimp, crab, and lobster. We don't do chains, although I've heard good things about Legal. For breakfast, I prefer pancakes/french toast and my husband prefers more eggs/bacon. As far as location, I'd love to find at least a few places within walking distance of our hotel, Jury's, but I realize we'll probably have to cab it to get to others. I know there have been other posts regarding your favorite spots but hopefully you can narrow in on your favorites based on my criteria. Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing your responses.
