    I like Teatro on Tremont Street. They have a great (huge) antipasto plate. Some folks think it's a bit loud in there but I really don't mind it. Nice wine selection. I've always had good service as well.

      Ditto that antipasto plate at Teatra, and I'd also suggest Via Matta. A nice bottle of wine (or by the glass) and some appetizers. And get the contorni of fried mushrooms - wow! They have two sizeable bar areas where you *may* be able to make a reservation.

        Triple that antipasto plate (hmm "triple" ? is that correct?) Ah...Third. Third that antipasto plate. Brain isn't working so well today. Anyway, I agree on Teatro and that antipasto plate. Really great. Grab a plate of one of their delicous pastas, another app and a pizza, a few glasses of wine, life is good. Just try and get there early though, say 6ish, because it can get busy, esp before a show.

        The pizza at Teatro is also very good. Sit at the bar.

          The Wang is around the block from Chinatown, with dozens of possibilities. Search Chinatown for some suggestions.

            Jer-ne in the new Ritz is a very nice bar; not sure about the food.

              Blu..in the same building has a nice bar..not sure about the food.

              Snacks, wine, Wang and upscale..

              my top pick would be the bar at Troquet. Great food, full menu or bar menu and 1 of the best and fairly priced wine lists in the area..just a block from the Wang. Relaxed, upscale environment

              I like Teatro but it can be very loud and crowded..no seats available at bar at 7 PM on Wed. Bar was like being in a crowded MBTA car..:)

              Teatro is great.
              Pigalle on S. Charles Street.
              P.F. Changs is on S. Charles STreet also.

              Via Matta, Davios, Flemmings, Bon Fire, Legal and the Four Seasons is a short walk to Park Square from the Wang (5 minutes tops)
