Boston style Chinese food

Will be in Boston in May. Coming from Florida, I have heard a great deal about great this food is. Particularly the brown lobster. Any opinions on which restaurant prepares this best?

  1. I've never heard of brown lobster?

      1. By "brown lobster", do you mean "lobster sauce"?

          Yes, I am referring to lobster sauce. Am staying at the Boston Harbor Hotel. I guess we will have a car.

            Billy Tse is a short walk from BHH and has good Americanized Chinese.

              Billy Tse is a sneaky fun place to drink too.

            According to my Florida friends lobster sauce there is white with peas.

          3. Where will you be staying and how mobile are you?

            1. First they had a tea party now Bostonians have their own style of Chinese food?

                Yes. NY lobster sauce is white, with peas. Boston style is brown and has ground pork.
