Quincy Market has been serving the people of Boston since the 1820's. This world famous historic market has everything from modern clothing stores and busking musicians, to the yummiest clam chowder ever at Boston Chowda. And if you don't go for the shops & food from around the globe, go for the history.
Love cannoli? Boston is your city! Head up to the North End, Boston's 'Little Italy' and grab a great cannoli from each of the bakeries. Mike's Pastry is a go-to spot. It is home to 18 flavors ranging from Hazelnut to Mint Chip. People line up in the bakery, out the door, and spill onto Hanover Street for the authentic Italian pastries.
When we were in Boston for the 2010 INTA Annual Meeting, we loved having lunch by the shore. Great outdoor seating at the Boston Waterfront near Quincy Market, combined with sunny skies means Joe's is always packed. Go for the Lobster Roll and Nachos!
You should definitely go there early in the evening if you want to get a table swiflty. The food is amazing, service quick and nice, and the atmosphere is very romantic. Start with a warm burrata and end with a panna cotta. The pasta dishes are absolutely delicious.
If you prefer to have 'something different', you should try this one! They serve French Cambodian fusion cuisine with fresh flavors and ingredients. Interesting menu options, including vegetarian offerings. Chic and charming environment. The drinks are great, too!
This upscale seafood restaurant is located in the Boston Harbor Hotel at the waterfront. You can't beat the location! The view is incredible and the outdoor patio is amazing. The décor of the hotel is gorgeous, very well designed – classic and comfortable. The food is delicious and they offer a good wine selection. Definitely worth the trip out! Open from morning to night. Afternoon tea is also popular.
For a great seafood experience in the northeast, this restaurant close to the Central Boston Public Library is a must-do! It's pricey but worth it. The place has a lot of Old World Charm; dark wood mixed with contemporary lighting and pictures and models of sailboats. They have outdoor seating in front. Amazing seafood with excellent service. Great restaurant for a date night or a nice business meal.
If you haven't experienced Yvonne's, it needs to be on your top list of places to visit in Boston. The spot is super cool!
The music and ambience is chilled and classy. Kind of dark, yet vibrant, with plenty of sophistication, it evokes the nostalgia of the 20's and 50's, catering to the sensibilities of a new generation of trendsetters and tastemakers - a modern interpretation of the Supper Club. The atmosphere makes this establishment unique. Modern American cuisine. Great cocktails, good wine selection. Reservation recommended.
