This is my first time posting on CHOW, but I've been an occasional reader every once in a while - reading up and visiting places in the Greater Toronto Area, Canada (where I've been raised and am now working). Toronto (as far as I know) has top-level and an enormous variety of ethnic foods to choose from. I'm definitely not a picky eater and will try almost anything (given I deem it an acceptable price), but I realize that Boston isn't really known for its cultural foods. Nonetheless, I'd definitely like to see what Boston has to offer in the lower and higher price ranges. In essence, I just want to taste and feel Boston.
I'm going to be in town for the International Seafood Exhibition this Thursday till next Wednesday and will be working and staying near Post Office Square Park. Is that the "south" of the city?
I'll have to grab quick and inexpensive lunches (max $10, 30 minutes or takeout) in the vicinity of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (although google maps tells me there's not much there)! So maybe in the southern area of the city?
For dinner, I may or may not have time, but would love to try some great places as well (mains ranging between $15 - $30) with a great Bostonian atmosphere!
I've taken a look at the "must-tries" and "touristy" places on previous threads so I have an idea, but feel free to give your two-cents regarding this area of the city!!
