Solid Recs for Boston?

Dissappointed Chowhound | Oct 11, 2005 04:51 PM


I came to Boston, really excited to try food from this city. After tring some seemingliy reliable recommendations, I have been dissapointed over and over again.

So far I have tried:

Redbones: the ribs were fine but nothing special

Midwest Grill:meat was bland and again nothing special

Monica's in North end: If you are ever short of salt in your body, go and have their lobster ravioli

Dali:Way overpriced and sloppily excuted tapas

Bartley's Burger Shack: Juicy and thick but needs a couple pinches of salt/seasoning

Brown Sugar:quite good

Radius: good but for that price, I should hope so.

Campo di Fiori:It was ok, but the regular one w tomato and basil used canned, way too tart tomatoes and dried basil sprinkles.

Mike's Pastry's: pretty good cannoli's

el pelon: lacked cilantro and onion, and hence taste in just about everything

Noodle street:Oh man, you can get much better for 4 dollars cdn in Toronto

Audobon: Supposedly one of the best burgers?...hmm not quite Their roasted potatoes and spicy ketchup was kinda interesting

I admit, I am very picky and have had all sorts of good food over europe, china, SF, and Toronto but really expected more from Boston. can anyone recommend some true hidden gems? The places which serve truly tasty, creative food? something which I can't easily whip up at home? Or find easily in other cities? at Reasonable prices?
