Looking forward to our Boston visit
Well, after much research, we are set for our visit to Boston. We arrive tomorrow morning, departing Sunday evening.
While we've read much buzz about Island Creek Oyster Bar and Row 34, we were not successful getting a reservation, so we will take our chances if we decide to go.
We are leaving lunches to whatever comes along. Looking forward to the food trucks!
We have to decide on dinner reservations as we are double booked Thursday and Friday evenings. We will do walk bys first thing when we arrive tomorrow and then cancel one of the reservations.
Coppa or Atlantic Fish Co.
Coppa or Eastern Standard
Merril & Co.
Really looking forward to our visit. Will report back on our eating when we return home.
there is no reason to go to atlantic fish. coppa is a no-brainer. (chef just won a james beard award too.)
esk has an excellent cocktail program and a very thoughtful, well-priced wine list. while i always enjoy the food, it's nothing ground-breaking. i would just plan my day so i got to island creek when they open at 4:00 and then have dinner at the bar when the kitchen opens at 5:00.
some of the really exciting new places are actually in cambridge and somerville right now. any chance you'd cross the river?

Ok, we've made our decision and decided on Atlantic Fish for tonight, Coppa tomorrow and Merril & Co. Saturday.
We really wanted seafood for our fist night in town. I know Atlantic is not new and trendy, but all the reviews I've read are very positive.
Will report back and let you know how we get on.
May try Eastern Standard for lunch/brunch.
