I need some help with a trip to your city around Dec 5th

raybon | Nov 20, 201406:21 PM

First off I want to apologize for taking the lazy route (not searching the history of the boston board), but I am coming to your fair city from Toronto the week end of Dec 5th. It is really just a food and drinking trip. A good friend of mine in the seafood business in Toronto has told me to visit Union Oyster House, Neptune, and the Island Creek Oyster Bar (he is a shellfish guy to be sure). He also recommended Sweet Cheeks BBQ. I generally trust his judgement, correct me if you think he is off. I arrive late Thursday night with my wife (celebrating my fortieth), and will be in need of a good casual late night dinner/snack spot. We are staying at the Loews. Friday I have a couple of friends and family arriving after lunch (so a good lunch pick for friday) and we will need to go for drinks then dinner (about 6-10 people). Then we are there for the rest of the weekend. Considering I don't know much about Boston, any advice would be great. I am really excited about the seafood in your city. From divey bar to upscale. We will be a bunch of roving, drinking and eating enthusiasts. Consider that the more divey places we go in the day, we are left with more to spend in the evening.

Union Oyster House,
Island Creek Oyster Bar
