Summer in Back Bay recommendations?

eastofthemississippi | Jul 1, 2011 04:35 PM

I'll be living in Back Bay near the Pru through September, and wanted to get summer restaurant recommendations. I enjoy almost all types of food and am looking for good food appropriate for a variety of situations that is reasonable enough that I could sample many of the recommendation over the weekends (i.e. not Clio or L'Espalier, although I will probably try one or the other). I've had good experiences at several of the places mentioned this board, but wanted to ask about summer favorites, as all the Newbury patios are similar looking but (as I found out) vary widely in quality.

Already been to: Lucy's, Back Bay Social Club, Kashmir, Charley's, Legal, Lucca, Champions, Boloco, Abe & Louies, Asana. Bottega Fiorentina, and Boston House of Pizza. Will definitely do: Island Creek Oyster Bar, Douzo, either L'Espalier or Clio, B Good, Stephanies. I feel the list is missing high-end Chinese and small plates places, as well as brunch, so those recommendations would be especially appreciated.
