First, let me say that we're not Laker fans.
My wife and I will be spending 5 nites in Boston later this month. We are looking to eat places that maybe do not necessarily have the absolute best food in town but are places that are local legends or well-established restaurants that have stood the test of time for their very good food and service. We're not interested in the trendy restaurants that come and go. We don't mind going to dives, as long as they're clean.
Specifically, we're looking for Italian (preferably in the North End), seafood (is Legal Sea Food as good as I've read in various reviews?), lobster rolls, clam chowder, steakhouses, breakfasts (please don't tell me Boston's like NYC and has a dearth of great breakfasts places), and pizza.
We're staying near Boston Common and are willing to travel to any place within the city.
Thanks in advance for your help.
