Where to eat during the American Dietetic Association while staying at the Colonnade and attending conference at Boston Convention Center?
I'm in Boston from Nov. 6 to 9th, and need some recommendations.
The restaurant in the lobby of the Colonnade, Brasserie Jo, is consistently solid, so I would recommend at least one meal there. The steak frites is superb, particularly with roquefort butter.

The area near your hotel has lots of restaurants but not many that will let you stay under $30. If you like Asian food, there are good Thai places nearby that will do it; Chilli Duck on Boylston is a good choice. In the South End, Anchovies on Columbus has reasonably priced Italian. Coda on Columbus has reasonably priced new American. Some South End places offer discounts on early dining (order by 6:30); Aquitaine, Union and Gaslight (common ownership) do this and others probaby do as well.
Try Pho Basil on Mass. Ave.:
It is very reasonably priced Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. It is not far from the Colonnade. The duck noodle soup is very good. So is the tamarind duck. I haven't had a disappointing dish there.
