Default Calling on all Bostonian's

The wife just got the call, and she is headed to Boston in the morning. She has never been there and she is staying at the Sheridan near the convention center. She wants to know where she should have dinner her first night there. I know it's really late, but she just found out 30 minutes ago. She was asked by the head honcho to take a guys place that came down with food poisoning tonight.

Any advise much appreciated!

I lived downtown for 14 years, left in 2007 so my info might not be totally up to date. If its the Sheraton at the convention center she will be on Boyleston st in the heart of back bay. 2 nd nicest neighborhood in the city besides Beacon Hill. A block away is Newbury st with a ton of little restaurants and shops. She can kill a few hours walking around there and thru Boston Common.

She can also take a quick cab ride to the North End. It is the italian section with tons of great food places.

See if she can get to Legal Seafoods.

Its a above average place with a business clientele atmosphere. Or at least the Braintree location is.. There may be 2 locations right in Boston. A good variety of seafood and I use to get a great steak there.. Not sure if they do those anymore.

you cant miss with any of these.

legals is another good choice. They have a legal test kitchen which is a younger/bar/loungier feel with a different menu.

There is the Legal by Park Plaza and right around the corner on columbus is Maggianos's Little Italy for excellent italian food, a lot of people go there for the veal for which it is well known.

Good advice. Legal is a joke.

Thanks to all for your quick responses, and especially to carwasher who sent my wife an e-mail giving her some of his expert advice. My wife has been there for only 8 hrs now and she loves that place!!!

She found some of the nice little shops on some street just down the road from the Sheratan right near the convention center where she is staying. I think this may cost me a few $$$$.

She's going on the "Duck-Tour" tomorrow at lunchtime, carwasher told me no man would be caught dead on this tour. I must look it up on the net, this should be fun.

Thanks again everyone! You folks rock!!!

The duck boats are a little small compared to the whale watch boats

There's the "CodZilla" high speed boat tour of the harbor if she wants to kick it up a notch from the duck tour. She could also take the ferry to P-town for the day which would be a good take in contrast to boston.

My wife just texted me from Mistral, she found several "new friends" she met today at the convention and they all went here due to the recommendation of folks like "carwash" and others.

She said they are having a wonderfully time and are still there! I would bet my ass that she's downing gin & tonics like their candy!!!! She does love her gin & tonic.

She didn't actually say what she had to eat but that her tab so far was south of $135.00 I'm not sure if I should thank anyone now!!!!! Holy crap. Thank GOD it's on the company dime, at least I think it is????

Oh Boy!

The business orientation of this trip started this morning. She is 100% a meat & potatoes type of gal.......that does not always equate to inexpensive

I guess her tab for the food part was a little over $85.00 and the drinks were south of $50.00 She likes the top shelf stuff

I am very blessed though because overall, she is 95% low maintenance, low cost, and ALWAYS has a smile on her face. She has even had that smile on throughout our ordeal with losing our place to the bank which is still ongoing. I don't know many folks...male or female that could go threw this and still keep their sanity! She's the greatest thing in my life.

My wife will do that too. It has to be along the lines of a special occasion. It doesn't take long if the girls go and start tapping $100 bottles of wine!

I'll bud light

I'm a Sam Adam's man myself, could never stomach wine. I like to throw back any drink I currently have in my hand....I am by no means a "sipper" of anything. During hot summer months I will down 3 beers in under a minute to quench my thirst. Wine just couldn't do that for me!!!!
