        I agree with all of the above suggestions. So my must have would be a trip to Neptune Oyster, with obviously oysters to start, and an appetizer of fried clams or an order of clam chowder with a lobster roll. Something sweet from the North End is also a must. My choice would have to be Marias.

          Don't miss the roast beef thread from a couple weeks ago.
