My wife and I are going to be in Boston this weekend (Th - Sun) for our anniversary. First time to Boston for us both. Staying at the Eliot Hotel - will likely not have a car. I'm looking for recommendations on 'can't miss' restaurants... want to eat where discerning folks from Boston go -- not tourist haunts.
Here's what we are looking for:
1. We'll likely have two 'nice' dinners - am ok with spending $100+ each night(wife is pregnant - I'll be drinking for 2). Romantic atmospere one night and 'lively' another night. Preferences would be steak one night... and seafood or Italian. No sushi.
2. Also request rec's on good casual spots for dinner or lunch with good quality but that won't break the bank. Who's got the best chowder?
3. Good casual breakfast/brunch.
Thanks for the ideas... and looking forward to visting your city.
