Back Bay Hotel surrounding eats

Hello fellow foodies.
Heading to Boston for the first time. Are there any good places to eat around the Back Bay Hotel location on Sunday?

Also, what are some good eats around town?

    The neighborhood you're in doesn't have a ton of really interesting stuff, though there are some good high-end restaurants. Your options open up quite a bit if you're willing to hike, get on the subway, or get in a taxi. What kind of food are you looking for, and what's your budget?

      Have appetite and appreciation for good eats, will travel. We're open to traveling for good eats. Something quintessential to the great city of Boston and something only Boston can get right would be ideal.

        Oh. We will eat anything except Ethiopian. Not a huge fan of it. No fine dining or anything that will break the bank. We know a great meal doesn't always mean you have to break the bank.

          I think chowder and lobster rolls are probably the closest you will find to things "only Boston can get right" - see this recent thread - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/864416

        Within a half mile there are over 100 places. You can start with the grille 23, Davios, Atlantic fish isn't far. Turner fisheries, skipjacks.
        The south end is just across Columbus ave and loaded with great places. Talk to the hotel concierge.
