I am due to give birth next week and need a "last meal" suggestion....

Mr. Swank asked me where I'd like to go as one last night out pre-baby. I've settled on the North End but can't really narrow it down. Any ideas? I'm a fan of spicy sauces, bivalves, garlic, etc. Not a huge fan of Northern Italian. Ideas??

    Giacomo's seafood fra diavlo sounds like it'd work for you.

        Maurizio's, Taranta, Daily Catch, and Neptune would be my choices with those requirements.

          I'd be inclined to pick a place that is tough to visit with a baby/toddler. I'm due in a month with my second and am paying attention to this thread! Places we've never gone with our 4 year old at any stage of her life - Neptune, Giacomo's, Daily Catch. Any place that is tiny with a long wait is tough with a baby or toddler. I love the linguine with clams at Pomodoro and the seating would make that place pretty much off limits with a baby too.

            I'd vote Neptune, given that the space and line pretty much rule it out as a destination with a baby or toddler.

              Not really what you're asking for, but I would think a full Speed's dog would be a great last meal, and would probably also induce labor, if desired.
