Help! I currently work in NY but used to go to school in the Boston area, but that was years ago! My co-worker has asked me for places where he could take his family (wife and 2 small kids) when he visits boston this weekend. He likes good affordable food, a friendly environment where he could take the kids and not feel out of place, but he despises any sort of chain-restaurant like Cheesecake factory. I already recommended some stuff in the north end, and he's already going to faneuil hall for an afternoon. Other than that, I'm completely lost since I haven't been back to Boston for a while. Any cuisine is fine just as long as it's tasty and not too pricey! They want to stay in the central boston area, i.e. they dont' want to drive outside the city. Cambrige is ok.
