I lived in Boston for 3 years, but moved to Berkeley, CA 1 1/2 years ago for graduate school. I am making a return trip to NYC & Boston over my Spring Break and will be in Boston from Sat-Wednesday in late March.

I would love to have some recs for great places that may have opened up in since I departed. My husband and I are "fishaterian" (no beef, chicken, pork - just seafood 'n veggies). We love all types of cuisine, especially spicy/flavorful stuff. Preferably mid-price range and below ($20 entree and less) since we're hitting some bank-breaking places in NYC. We'll be hopping around staying at different friends' aparatments in JP and Back Bay. No car...oh the lovely T.

Most excited about Emma's Pizza. After all my time in the Bay Area, I haven't found a single pizza joint that even comes close to my love for Emma's and their spicy rosemary sauce. I know there is more authentic pizza, but I prefer gourmet-style.

Also planning to try B & G oysters. Feedback on it? Best time to go there? I desparately need a lobster roll. Is there a better place?

Possible other old faves:
-Happy Hour small apps @ Bonfire
-calamari and drinks at The Franklin
-papusas in JP

Enormous thanks in advance!
