visiting for 5 nights..what to eat?
Hi ribboy--can you give any more guidance on what sort of stuff you're looking for? There are plenty of good restaurants in and around Boston, with a wide range of prices, cuisines, and ambiance. I'd suggest you take a look through the archives (for non-high-end ideas, take a look at this thread http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/724829 ) to get some idea of context. For some more info, take a look at these threads too:
Since it inevitably comes up, for seafood IN Boston, Neptune Oyster and Island Creek Oyster Bar are perennial favorites.
