L.A. Hound Needs Help...soon.

  • 2

I'm flying in to Boston for a family occasion today (Thursday). I'd like to eat something other than whatever the hotel staff recommends, or whatever I stumble upon.

Stipulations:
- We are staying at the Ritz Carlton on Avery Street.
- I have my one year old daughter in tow, no babysitter, and prefer not to drive too far.
- We have the following meals open: THURSDAY DINNER, FRIDAY BREAKFAST AND LUNCH, SATURDAY LUNCH/LATE AFTERNOON SNACK, SUNDAY BRUNCH.

We'll go fancy (but early so as not to bug people with our child's less than perfect behavior), or low-end, so long as it's good and chowish.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions for our culinary itinerary. And let me know if I can ever return the favor.

  1. Chinatown is around the corner, tons of stuff that you can read about: Taiwan Cafe, Penang, Peach Farm, etc. Parish Cafe on Boylston St. by Arlington is a 10 min walk and good for Sat. late afternoon or Fri. lunch. Teatro around the corner would be good for an early dinner on Thurs. Breakfast isn't big in that area but closeby is the casual Paramount or Panificio on Charles St. in Beacon Hill for breakfast. Sunday brunch over at the Blue Room in Kendall Sq. Camb. if you want to hop on the red line or take a quick cab ride/drive.

      You're a gem. And I am grounded in L.A. I am printing and saving your suggestions for the next time I make it to town.
