Hello Boston hounds,
I'm taking my chowhoundish brother out for a celebratory meal in Boston in a couple of weeks, and am looking for recommendations of really good, authentic, delicious central/south American places that are a step up from hole-in-the-wall but still really great. As in, it doesn't have to be fancy, but fluourescent lighting never feels festive to me... Ecuadorian recs would be particularly excellent, as he's spent time there.
As another idea, someone mentioned a middle eastern place in Cambridge that is a little fancy but also good. Know it? Recommend it? Recommend another?
Thanks for your guidance!
