Will be in Boston this Sunday (13th) and staying at the Intercontinental. Looking for a nice place (North End?) for about $125 (inclusive).
Not fussy on type of food but prefer Italian or Seafood.

    North End: Mare (italian and seafood), Prezza's, Monica's (on Richmond's). I really love Prezza's!!! I also like Giacomo's but there is always a long long line, they only take cash and the restaurant is really cramped.

    Not sure how familiar you are with Boston but stay away from the tourist traps:

    Faneuil Hall
    Legal Seafood
    Barking Crab

      If you are solo or just two people and can get to the North End early enough on Sunday night, Neptune Oyster is where you need to go (note I tried about 9p on Friday night and was told no more names being taken as the wait was already 90 minutes). It's amazing. Prezza is a really good alternate that takes reservations, and you could probably do well with your budget (assuming its for two) at Bricco as well, but I think it's overpriced and not nearly as good as the other two.

      Mamma Maria's is my choice for a nice Italian and seafood dinner, hands down.

        I beg caution on the Barking Crab recommendations, read the recent thread devoted to this spot.
