Boston Dining Guide?

Seth Ditchik Jul 8, 1999 12:16 PM

Can anyone recommend a dining guide to Boston, a la
Jim Leff's Eclectic Guide? I'm looking for something
that can steer me towards good restaurants that Fodors
or the Rough Guide might pass over.

    Here is the URL for the Globe newspaper's dining reviews. This one has a review of Dim Sum at the Chau Chau City -- a challenger to the best in Chinatown.

    Read the review and see what you think.

    If you go into the Globe dining archives you can find a lot of "cheap eats" places with fine food. However -- time changes things and some places are not what they used to be. Some have sliped away -- like the wonderful little authentic Singapore place that was in the South End. Call before you make plans.

      there's a www.bostondine.com website with a searchable
      rest. database, including reader/diner input,
      providing quite a lot of potentially useful info
      similar to that you can get from these message boards,
      but no alpha hound keeping the site honest that I can
