I'll be driving up to Boston from DC next week and I'm looking for some recs for places that are quintessential to Boston or just great food!
Not looking for anything in particular and I'd like to avoid tourist traps that serve signature mediocre dishes at extraordinarily high prices.
Also not looking for any ethnic food in particular, just want great relatively cheap food that locals eat at; little jewels in Boston. I'm from LA so I'm pretty experienced with Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mexican cuisine but not much else.
$20/ per person (without tip and drinks) and under would be great!
