Mid-priced Fanueil Hall Area??

Shamrock22 Jan 8, 2008 05:09 PM

Need help for a mid-priced dinner post matinee Bruins game in the Faneuil Hall N. End area. Looking for something not a chain , and not necessarily traditional Italian for out of town guests to make then feel as if they have had a unique experience. Any suggestions appreciated..

    If you don't mind traditional Italian and heading a slightly different direction from the Garden, check out Antonio's, on Cambridge Street near Mass General Hospital. Generous portions of well prepared traditional Italian dishes at very reasonable prices.

      Neptune on Salem St. would be unique, and I think that time would work out to sit down fairly easily (as long as your group isn't too big). If you choose well, it won't cost too much. You can make reservations at Antico Forno a few doors down if you do want Italian, reasonably priced. I have a good time at Kingfish Hall in F. Hall and they'll take res., $$ starts adding up. Grotto on Bowdoin St. would be nice. Porter's by the Garden for pub food and a bit more.

        Also consider Flat Iron (a tapas kind of place that puts out pretty damn good food and drinks). It's really close to The Garden, too.

          I'll second this. Flat Iron is my de facto Garden area recommendation

          Antico forno is always great, and not too expensive. Lucca is a little more expensive, but a great time is always had there. In faneuil hall kingfish hall has a nice menu for dinner and very rarely has a wait earier in the evening. Or you could just skip dinner and go straight to dessert and hit up modern pastry on hanover street.
