Upcoming trip - loose outline enclosed, advice needed!

Okay Boston Chowhounders - I have come up with a bit of a schedule and am looking for guidance.

Coming from Chicago in two weeks without a car, but I'm not afraid of cabbing, walking, or a bit of public transit. Staying at the Sheraton right by the Prudential Building from Thursday-Sunday and Sunday-Tuesday I'll be in the theater district at the Revere. I'm not a breakfast guy, so I'm cool without.

Thursday -
Arriving late enough that I probably won't be eating lunch (dozen oysters at Island Creek when they open maybe?)

Dinner at No 9 Park. It appears they don't take reservations for the bar, but I'll be alone and arriving by six, so this seems like it would be fine.


Friday -
Up in the air - I'll be alone, I am debating going to Salem. If I don't, and there's someplace I'm missing that does weekday lunch, let me know!

Dinner at Craigie on Main
Dessert at Toscanini’s.


Saturday -
Another day completely on my own, but I'll definitely be staying in Boston.

I have a lunch reservation at L'Espalier, I'm doubting whether I should do it, it's spendy, especially after Craigie.

Dinner is tricky - my wife will be working all day, is unsure when she's off, and probably won't want to hit the town. The only thing I can think of is Legal is down the block from the hotel and does carry out. This seems like a better idea than room service.


Sunday -
Brunch at Mike and Patty's.

Pre-dinner cocktails at Drink

Dinner at Erbaluce.


Monday -
Lunch at Neptune.

Stop in at Union Oyster House for a drink perhaps....the idea is to go, but not for a meal.
Dinner at Blue 13 - this place gets mixed reviews, but I'm a sucker for liquid nitrogen. Feel free to
persuade me one way or the other.


Tuesday -
Pre-flight lunch at Flour
