I'll be staying in the city very near Boston Common (Omni Parker House) with a friend of mine. We are both pretty frugal people, but adventuresome. Any thoughts about good eats and drinks nearby. For a Midwesterner like me what would be the quintessential Boston dining experience? FYI, I have never been to Boston before but I'm really looking forward to it!
Actually, I'd be willing to spend some $$$ if the experience were worthwhile.
