      BM, given the OP's stated request, I don't think there is another place to go. Besides, and if they're Bruins newbies, it's a right of passage. Love the Bobby Orr but another way to go is the Tony C, a breaded veal sang wit fresh mozz & marinara. Oh yeah!



      Four's Restaurant Boston
      166 Canal St, Boston, MA 02114

        When I think of the Fours, the Buffalo Chicken Nachos come to mind.

        Harvard Gardens on Cambridge St. 10 min walk away or so.

          Waterfront Cafe on Commercial Street would also serve: pitchers, good pizza, decent Italian-American entrees, subs. burgers, steamers, steak tips. http://www.waterfront-cafe.com/splash

            Waterfront Cafe is a great choice, but it's a good mile from the Garden. I'd still rec the Four's. It's right in the shadow of the garden and while you are eating, you can count the stitches on Gerry Cheevers' mask. Or check out a zillion photos of Larry Bird, Ted Williams, and, orf course, Bobby Orr! with all of the memorabilia on their walls, the Four's is the equivalent to a pre-game walk down Boston's sports pantheon of greatness .

              Really? I walked that very recently, from a Bruins game to the Waterfront Cafe, and I would have guesstimated it at half a mile, tops. Might be a bit more than a ten-minute walk between traffic lights at the big intersections (like N. Washington) and snowy sidewalks, but not all of a mile.

                It's nowhere near a mile from the Garden. It's a ten minute walk.

                  The Fours is a classic sports venue. Really should make the trip, if not this time maybe the next. For food though, the Waterfront Cafe is far better. It is a 10 min. walk to North Station which translates to 1/4 mile at best. I commute out of North Station and familiar with time and distance to and from North Station and various points in Boston.

              Although not a "pubush type" place, Regina Pizza is only a short walk from the Garden.

                If the Fours is your choice get there early, by 11:30 the place is a mob seen. I'd and (I will be eating there saturday) take the 10 minute walk to the Waterfront for better food, and no line at the door.
