So little time, so many choices. . . I need help!

I am going to be in Boston for 2 nights only and am looking for help with eats. I have been reading this board to find suggestions and have come across several that are appealing. I will be accompanied by my two "adult" children. One of them is a food writer who lives in Madrid so I really want to give her a "Bostonian" experience (and she misses American food).

We are thinking of hitting up Neptune when we arrive for a late lunch (around 2pm) on a weekday. The descriptions of their lobster roll has me giddy (I have never had one). I was thinking that at on a weekday at 2 they would not be sooo crowded. THEN, I kept seeing posts for Island Creek Oyster Bar.

Now I am wondering if we should save our seafood meal for a dinner at ICOB? I was really wanting our seafood meal to be on the water with a great view, etc., but am concerned that all we would get would be cheesy, tourist-y places with blah food. I am open to suggestions!

Thinking of hitting up Coppa for the other night's dinner. Love the idea of small plates to share. Any feelings on that one?

Then, I heard about Mike's for cannolis. Never tried one. Where should we go?

We are so excited to see what Boston has to offer both in history and of course, in gastronomy. I think we spend most of our vacation time and planning deciding where to EAT.
