Hungry academics seeking good food & value tonight (walk from Copley)
hello Boston hounds,
Seeking your help:
We're 10 hungry academics looking for a casual place with good, hearty food and prices that grad students and profs can afford within walking distance of Copley Sq.
Ideally something with a Boston accent (like seafood) but not necessary.
Its a bit of a walk, but head over to Chinatown.. Shabu Zen is pretty casual and fun - sort of an Asian fondue experience. There are several good places with a seafood flair - East Ocen City is my favorite, but there are some other contenders as well. Not exactly a Boston accent, though..
I've heard great review for the Corner Tavern. On the corner of Marlborough St and Mass. Ave I believe. If you do a search you'll get more info.
For during the conference, i.e., lunch, you might check out Legal Seafood, an originally Boston franchise. There's a branch in the Copley mall itself. Seafood's not cheap, but this place is moderately priced within the category. Excellent chowder, at least 2 types.
Coda on Columbus Ave. is the closest place to meet your needs.
