Out of state family visiting, itinerary feedback

jw72 | Sep 8, 201712:38 AM     11

I have some out-of-state family who will be visiting me in the Boston area next month for a few days. (Big seafood lovers, except my dad. Second time in Boston). They will be staying at Hyatt Cambridge, and we will mainly be taking the T or ubering. So far I have the following restaurant/activities planned.

Saturday:
- Lunch: Alden & Harlow/Little Donkey/Craigie on Main
- Afternoon activities: MIT Museum -> Boston Public Market -> Aquarium
- Dinner: Sportello down by the waterfront for good pasta/North Square Oyster (was planning to go for Neptune oyster, but heard this was just as good? I know they have a burger and a steak item for my dad)
- Other food stops: Toscanini ice cream, Alive n kicking lobster, James Hook lobster, North End cannolis

Sunday:
- Brunch: A4 pizza or Cafe Luna if sticking to central square area/Back Bay Beats in back bay (dad is into jazz, was interested in seeing berklee college last time)
- Afternoon activities: Museum of Fine arts, Isabella Gardener museum
- Dinner: Sarma (have a reserved time)

To note, I have not actually been to most these places...Most of what I've compiled has been from online research, so would love to hear your guys' feedback! Mostly want them to have a good time of course, and to enjoy some of the best and most unique food this city has to offer.
