Sorry for the last-minute post. Heading to Boston tomorrow for a conference, staying at Copley Place. I'll have time for a few dinners -- a couple at normal hours, and a couple that may be as late as 8:30 or 9. For the late ones I'd like to stay close in. I already know about Brasserie Jo and love it (I'm ready for that onion tart right now!), but would like some other options as well. Maybe fish (I know that can get pricey, but I'm intent on having at least one good piece of fish), thin-crust pizza, Northern Indian, non-fancy Italian, or Chinese. Open to other suggestions, as long as they're not high-end.
For the dinners where I have more time, I'm interested in the same kind of food, but am willing to take the T or walk a bit. How long a haul is it on the blue line to Santarpio's, and how far will I have to walk? And is it worth it? BTW, I've already been to the original Regina's and was less than impressed. How about the No Name -- any good, and is it accessible via T?
I posted this thread a couple of years ago asking about food near Copley Place: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/369633 , but I don't know what's changed since then. I think it's safe to assume that Skipjack's and Stephanie's have not improved. :o) Not that I ever ask concierges where to eat -- they're not exactly impartial.
