First off, thank you so much for all of your suggestions on where to eat and what to do in Boston. You have a very beautiful city with so much history, that's it's impossible to see and enjoy everything in just a few days.
Room from hotwire.com
Great deal for $90+ plus tax. Location is excellent, but room is pretty small.
(for the rest of our stay due to work)
Beautiful room and excellent service. What you would expect from the Four Season's. Location is excellent.
We took the red-eye in and had lunch at Neptune Oyster. We had their well known lobster roll (hot). It was delicious and very generous in size. Hubby and I split the roll as well as a bowl of chowder. Chowder was good, lots of clams but not very thick. That was a good thing though because it left us room for the lobster roll. We also had a few oysters. Great first taste in Boston!
We walked all around the North End, visiting historic sites and even walked through the Farmers Market. Wow, what great deals!
We stopped off at Union Oyster House to share a half dozen oyster's and beer. Sat at the bar and was entertained by the guy's shucking the oysters. Oysters were large (not as delicious as Neptune) however, a great experience!
Walking back to North End, we decided to stand in the LONG line at Mike's. It moves fast! We decided to try the chocolate chip cannoli. It was my first time having a cannoli and it was ok. Just don't think I'm a fan of all that cheese! But seems like the popular place to go to if you do like it. They had other very delicious looking deserts!
We did have reservations that evening for L'Espalier later for dinner. Honestly, we were enjoying our leisure time so much we decided to cancel and pick out a place in the North End (since we were already there!). The thought of going back to the hotel and getting dressed up just didn't sound to appealing at the time.
Stopped by Pomodero for a glass of wine and their calamari appetizer. Very delicious. Quaint restaurant and service was very friendly.
Walking around a bit more, we opted for Taranta for dinner. The ambiance in this restaurant is very nice and service was excellent. Dishes were well prepared and very tasty. Wine was also very reasonable. Overall the experience (and price!) made us very happy that we chose Taranta.
The next day we started off for bruch at Aquitane. So delicious!! We did the prix fixe and for that price, what a bargain! Highly recommend.
For late lunch, we went to Atlantic Seafood. Shared the 2lb stuffed lobster with chowder. Big dissapointment here. Chowder was delicous though. The stuffing in the lobster took away from the lobster. The lobster itself was rubbery, making difficult to cut. For $50, not worth it.
For dinner, we went to Grotto. Beautiful setting. Dinner there was delicous yet again! HUGE portions, didn't have room for dessert. Service was excellent as well. I had the filet with rissoto and my husband had the short rib's with gnocci. Amazing!
Thanks again to all who helped planned our trip.
