Hello Boston Hounds! I could definitely use your help... I'll be in town for about 24 hours beginning next Tuesday evening 2/9. In this time frame, I hope to eat as much great Boston "stuff" as I can, and the "stuff" is really flexible. I embrace all food experiences.... the unique, odd, local, authentic, etc.... as long as it's a good meal and a good time. If there's a really great bar or counter situation, I'd love that as I'll be traveling and dining solo.
I've been reading Boston posts for the past week or so, and these are my thoughts so far. I would so appreciate any feedback and direction:
1) Hamersley Bistro -- This was recommended by a friend, he swears by it. It looks fine to me, but not compelling. Any specific recommendations or insights would be great.
2) Lucca (at Back Bay) -- Heard the bar dining there is great
3) Toro - I'm intrigued by the uni offerings on the menu, not to mention a ton of other things. Is it all as good as it looks? If so, I'll reconsider moving to Boston for my grad program. ;)
4) Taranta -- Almost everything on the menu looks incredible...
The details: I'll be staying at the Ames Hotel, Court St. and Washington. Walking distance is great but not necessary, I'll travel via cab/T for good food.
Thanks in advance!
