faneuil hall

Anything chow-worthy in FH (or close by) these days?

  1. Nope, too touristy. Take a short walk over to the NE, plenty of places.

    1. I really enjoy McCormick and Schmick's. I had lobster there the other day...delicious. And great people watching too!

      1. I know it's not a favorite here, but I enjoy Kingfish Hall.

        1. re: Pegmeister

          As a former supporter, I have to say that my last meal there was not very good (about a month ago). I have no specific complaints and the service was wonderful, but the flavors were just muddy and indistinct.

          1. re: tdaaa

            we had very good oysters there last week, but they were badly shucked.

        2. Granted it is a chain- but Ive never had a bad meal at Wagamama's.

          1. I recently had some stuffed quaohogs at the Salty Dog and was surprised at how good they were. My expectations were really low, was expecting something prepackaged. But, they seemed really fresh. Can't vouch for the rest of the menu.

            1. I am a huge fan of Zo at Center Plaza (just a short walk from Fanueil Hall). It is a Greek place and they have really delicious chicken gyros served in a flatbread. I'd tell them to go easy on the yogurt sauce though. It is delicious but they are a little too generous with each serving.

              1. I think Sel de la Terre across the greenway does a solid lunch (and good dinners too). They have a take out counter where you can grab some food to go and head outside for a picnic. Also agree that Wagamama is good for noodles.

                  Last time I ate at Kingfish Hall I also thought it was decent. It's a pleasant atmosphere. Nearby on Broad Street there are a few restaurants, including the Japanese one (I'm blanking out on the name but is it Sakurabana?).

                  1. re: Lucymax

                    Yes, Sakurabana is my go-to for everyday sushi. Its not anything fancy but its solid sushi and sashimi.

                2. Sultans Kitchen is a very short walk away on State Street. The Turkish food there is excellent and not very expensive.
