Visting Boston for one night only - where to have dinner?
Greetings from Toronto!
My bf and I will be in Boston tomorrow night, and would love to have a yummy and relaxing nice dinner.
* Food: I love seafood, he's a vegetarian, so something of a mix.
* Price: say $100 each, all-in
* Atmosphere: anything from casual to upscale, not so loud we can't have a conversation
* Location: walking distance from Congress and Franklin
Thanks so much!
$100 @ is a very good budget so i am not going to direct you to ethnic spots.
bina. marliave. grotto. the bostonian hotel. NOT radius.

I would probably head to the North End, as its close to your hotel and there are plenty of vegetarian options.
Chinatown isn't a bad idea either.
Hamersley's Bistro is good for vegetarians but it'd be a cab ride, not a walk.

it looks like you are staying at the Langham Hotel - which is a short walk from the North End (Boston's Italian neighborhood, chock-a-block with restaurants and pastry shops - not to mention atmosphere!). Neptune Oyster (a board favorite) is on Salem Street and about a 15 minute walk (this was my exact commute when I lived on Salem Street and worked across the street from the Langham). You can then enjoy a stroll through the North End and stop at one of the pastry / coffee shops on Hanover Street. The seafood is arguably the best in Boston. In our most recent visit, we feasted on fried clams, oysters, razor clams in white wine, Seared tuna sandwich and the warm lobster roll. This was a late lunch, ergo the more lunch-y type choices. There are many expertly prepared fish entrees that will please any fish lover!

On the high end, you might check out O Ya - $200 will be cutting it a little close money-wise, but it is close to your location and has suitable fish and veggie selections. Regarded as one of the best restaurants in the city foodwise - not sure how hard it is to get a rez on such short notice - your hotel may be able to help. Portions are tiny so you may need a snack after.
On the low end, there is Little Q in Chinatown - Mongolian hot pot - you can get two broths - a veggie and another one (mala is spicy Szechuan, herbal is also good) and cook your selection of veggies and seafood.
