Oblivious to Boston - Hound needs lunch and dinner recs for this weekend 5/29-31

Wife and I are coming to town from DC this Fri for Leonard Cohen at the Wang Theater Sat.
We're staying around the corner from the theater.
She's a "never-ever" in terms of visiting Boston, I haven't been there since friends were at BU 20 years ago (jeez has it been that long?!?!?). Memory of what I did, besides stumble to Brueger's for breakfast is definately hazy. We both grew up in NYC, but now live in DC, so the diversity and quality of meals has been lacking lately. We really miss italian and sushi.

We'd appreciate any early (6-ish) dinner recs near the theater for Saturday. We eat anything, but require a good gin gimlet as a part of the meal.

Since we need to also eat Friday, and have more time to explore, we'd appreciate any other recs for outside of the theater district. Preferably someplace "Boston-y" that isn't Legal Seafood or Cheers (sorry, but that is what comes to mind)

Finally, we'll be exploring Saturday during the day. If the weather is iffy, we'd like to take in the Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese exhibit at MFA. If nice weather, should we walk around Quincy Mkt? If not where else? Lunch is not required due to the early dinner.

In short:
Bostony Dinner Friday
Early dinner Saturday near Wang Theater
Areas to explore Saturday

Thanks !

PS- Best way from Logan to where we are staying is the T, right?
