Best food around Prudential Center?

Looking for a good place (or 2 or 3) to grab food before a hockey game at the Prudential Center.

Happy to hit more than one place if there are must try specialities nearby.

  1. If you want Portuguese food, your best bet is Seabra's Mariqueira on Madison St. Just off Ferry St. They have free parking just up the blockm while you are in the restaurant.

    If you are looking for a more diverse menu in a bar type setting, try Hell's Kitchen on Lafayette St. They are in walking distance of the Prudential Center.

    1. Are you sure you want to eat before seeing the Devils? Their cellar status and inability to win a game may just turn your stomach. I know it has done so to mine. What happened to our team??? :(

        Actually a Ranger fan...going tonight. We aren't exactly anything to get excited about...Been a long and fruitless Glen Sather era. At least you have a quality GM you can hope will turn things around. Fire Sather!

        Fornos was also recommended so may have something there and check out Seabra's Mariqueira too...heading out early!

          Should be an interesting game!

          My brother just went to Seabra's the other night for a surprise birthday party and he said the food was great.
