Help! I need to find good food near Waterfront Westin in Boston!

Looking for high quality not too expensive seafood (ethnic ok) walkable distance from the waterfront Westin in Boston. Also, any cinemas in the hood?

    Legal Test Kitchen is an easy walk. Kind of a hit or miss place, in my experience, not nearly as consistent as the "regular" Legal's. It does stay open late, which is a plus.

    No cinemas within walking distance. The Loew's on Boston Common is probably the closest. 10 or 15 minute cab ride.

      You're pretty close to both Lucky's Lounge and The Channel Cafe, both in the Fort Point neighborhood. Both have good food, and The Channel Cafe also has an art gallery.

      355 Congress Street, Boston, MA 02210

        The No Name Restaurant has high quality and low prices. Cash only (I think; there's one of those stupid high-charging ATMs on site). Daily Catch is also close and fair. I'm usual silent concerning places that I don't like, but I'm not a fan of the Barking Crab.

          No Name has taken CC's the past few years. Daily Catch is very good if you like your seafood with an Italian flavor.

            I was just at Daily Catch and the service was so bad it became laughable. We asked the waiter for dessert menus (I know, dumb idea) and 15 minutes later he returned with nothing. At that point we asked for the bill, since he was so clueless that we actually wanted to spend more money at this restaurant. The food was quite good, but why would someone go here to get an insulting level of service?

          Avoid the NoName, terrible tourist trap restaurant. Sam's in the Louis Boston opened recently over there, it's been getting mixed reviews, but I've enjoyed everything I've had there so far and you can't beat the views

            also you aren't too far from chinatown, about 15 minute walk, so try new jumbo or peachfarm for live tank seafood
