Your Top 5

Coming to Boston in a week, looking for some seriously good eating. What are your top 5 personal favorites? I am purposely keeping this broad because I want a wide sampling of what is out there.

  1. Yikes - this is impossible to answer without knowing what you want.
    For example, do you want steak or do you want ethnic food? Similarly, do you want a fancy dining experience or do you want to try something funky? Finally, do you have any budgetary, location or food restrictions?
