Spending a night in Boston next week and I'm looking to go to a friendly spot (i.e. I can wear jeans) to eat alone and have some really good food. I'm not looking to spend a whole lot, but not looking for cheap eats either.
I like seafood appetizers and meat entrees. Good beer is a plus too! I'm not looking for "ethnic" necessarily, although if there's an izakaya you can recommend I'd be all over that. Modern American food is probably the buzzword that best describes what I'm after.
I'll be staying at a hotel on Boylston Street. Looks like it's close to the Hynes convention center and the Boston Public Library...sorry, I really don't know Boston. Willing to cab it to a reasonable distance.
