So me and my girlfriend are heading into Boston for my birthday in a couple weeks and we're looking for places for dinner on 2 nights (Thursday and Friday). We're both really into food, but we don't want to spend a fortune. I tried doing my own research for the past week, but I'm very overwhelmed by the amount of quality restaurants in the area. We're staying at the Westin Waterfront over by the Harpoon Brewery, but it doesn't need to be in the immediate area.
We're both adventurous eaters, so we're not necessarily looking for steak and potatoes, just really tasty food. Trying to stay under $40 a person before alcohol. Thanks in advance for any help you can give us!
