Heading to Boston, looking for good recs

peppermynt | May 30, 2008 07:31 PM

Hello! I am going to be in the Boston area (Waltham) for six weeks (from the beginning of June to mid-July). My companion and I will have a moderate food budget but would love to be able to have at least one big-budget celebratory dinner. I love to cook, so we won't be eating out every night, but we'd love to have some memorable meals. I am concerned about winding up in any tourist traps, though.

I'm coming from a very small town in far Eastern Oregon - the Mexican food here is unparalleled, but I'm particularly keen to get into some excellent ethnic food when I'm in Boston. I particularly love (and miss) seafood as a transplant from Charleston, SC, and I hear Boston has some of the best. We'll have a car and are willing to travel anywhere within the Boston area. My friend isn't as adventurous an eater as I am, but he's game to try *most* things.

We'll also be on the Cape for a wedding, so if you have any recs for good restaurants in that area I'd appreciate that as well.

Thanks, hounds!
