First trip to Boston, need recs!

Hello Chowhounds!

About me: I'm from southern California traveling to Boston/Providence for the first time. I'm going to be a grad student at RISD and will be in the area looking for apartments. I'm bringing along my Chinese mom to help. I'll be flying into Boston this Thursday morning and driving to Providence.

Can anyone recommend some good restaurants in the area? Anything special to the region or that can't be found in CA? We're both pretty adventurous eaters. Ideally, I'd like to spend about $20/person, so as not to increase my debt load by too much.
1) I'd like to find a place sort of close to the airport or along the way to Providence for breakfast/lunch.
2) Lunch/dinner places in Providence! I'm going to be there for a whole week!
(hmmm, should I post this in the NE board?)

Thanks a bunch!
