Dinner Recommendations Near South Station for Boss and I

chrispra Jan 16, 2013 04:20 PM

Hi we're arriving tomorrow evening around 6 and I needed a nice place to have dinner before we get in a cab to Bedford. Any recommendations? I'm hoping for someplace like a Balthazar? I would just love a nice piece of fish.
Thank you!

    There is nothing remotely like Balthazar in Boston, sorry.

    There are a lot of options if you're willing to walk or T it.

    Is fish a deal breaker ?

        chinatown is a stone's throw and you can get excellent fish at east ocean city or peach farm.

      not balthazar, lol, but les zygomates does respectable bistro food and is a short walk from south station.

              3rd for Les Zygs. This place is totally underrated in my opinion

              Another fine restaurant that you might want to consider is Radius (http://www.radiusrestaurant.com/). It's a short walk from South Station, probably the closest place for high-end dining.

                    10 minutes walk from South Station is Pasta Beach, big hit with the Italian expat community in Boston. Good pizzas and pastas, I have had their spaghetti with seafood before, very good. It's at the ground floor of the Boston Harbor Hotel.
