I am going to be in Boston in May with wife and another couple for 3 days. Other couple never been to Boston. Would love a great dining experience that really says "Boston". Cost no object. Seaffod, Italian, a plus

    This is a pretty generic request and it would help a lot if you could offer some parameters. Price? Location? Atmosphere? There are tons of great options but it's impossible to narrow it down like this...

        We are staying at the Four Seasons...price is not important...atmosphere should be leaning to fine dining, but a place with a real feel of Boston and the Northeast...character....

          I think the Locke-Ober might fit the bill. It has very Brahmin (Boston old money) atmosphere and a lot of history (it's over 100 years old), but a relatively new chef/owner who has freshened the classic New England menu with some modern technique and love of high-quality local ingredients. Great old-fashioned service, interesting wines, distinctly Bostonian. You can also walk there from the Four Seasons.

            Hammersley's Bistro in the South End is a good bet. The atmosphere is understated, the food consistently good, and the neighborhood is just lovely.
