Girls wknd-near Mariott long wharf
Hello I am helping organize a sorority reunion in Boston. We will be staying at the Mariott Long Wharf so near by breakfaast coffee shops are needed. Also Satrurday night we are set but we will have only 4 of us on Friday night for dinner so someplace where we can chat and catch up with tasty but not adventorous food,good wine and a lively atmosphere. We can take the T for the right spot but walking distance is preferred. Also any suggestions for lunch ideas a good burger perhaps would be greatly appreciated.
another vote for breakfast at sel del la terre, unless you are looking for deli/eggs type of eating then i suggest walking over to broad street. there are several coffee shops (including bean leaf on east india row right off broad street) that offer decent breakfasts.
i'd head to the north end on friday night and have dinner at Prezza.
when is your weekend? if it's this one up-coming, i suggest reservations, because it is head of the charles, and the city is mobbed.
second sel de la terre.
however, sultan's kitchen is more of a lunch take-out spot and closes very early. when open, it's loud, hot and has icky flourescent lighting plus no liquor of any kind. it caters to local 9-5ers during the week and is not even open saturday night or sunday at all. flour bakery is nearby for casual lunch.
rumbah at the intercontinental is a good spot for drinks.
kingfish is ok, and there is also a houston's at quincy market. oceanaire is walking distance, but hit-or-miss with food.
Sel de la Terre across from your hotel serves very good food in a nice atmosphere. It also has a boulangerie that is open at breakfast for juice, coffee and delicious pastries.
You will quite close to the Quincy Market area. In general, the food there is mediocre and over priced. Kingfish Hall does a decent lobster roll though for lunch. Sultan's Kitchen on State St is a popular choice on CH as well.
Finally, you are very close to the North End, an Italian dining mecca. Try a board seach and see how many choices you will have. Note that lots of North End places are mediocre tourist traps; stick to the places recommended here.
