Bostonian here! List of restaurants that are amaze-balls:

Mooo…., Beacon Hill 4 start, $$$$

No. 9 Park, Beacon Hill, 5 starts, $$$$

Mistral, Back Bay 4 stars, $$$$

Ostra, near Park Plaza 4 stars, $$$$

Hammersleys, South End 4 stars, $$$

Gourmet Dumpling House, Chinatown 5 stars. $$

Salts, Bondir, Oleana- All three in Cambridge, all three easily the best restaurants in the entire Boston area, all three 5 stars (especially Oleana!), $$$

As far as things to do, catch a game at Fenway (even though the Sox are having a terrible year); go on a whale watch (they book quickly and can be pricey, but I’ve always seen whales); go to Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (where I got engaged!) and see some of the most beautiful art work in the world; stop at the MFA and see the American wing, housing beautiful American art; eat on the Waterfront, a district of the city recently developed and booming with restaurants; stop at antique stores on Charles Street; walk along the Charles River; window shop on Newbury Street; get a canolli in the north end (skip Mike’s- tourist trap- and opt for Modern Pastry across the street instead); catch an indie film at either Kendall Sq. Cinemas in Cambridge or Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline; walk around Harvard Sq. 

For late-night drinks I love:

JM Curley’s- Downtown Crossing

Silvertone’s- Downtown Crossing

State Park- Kendall Square, Cambridge

Eastern Standard- Kenmore Square, Boston

21st Amendment- Beacon Hill (dive bar that sees the wealthiest of politicians to the drunkest down and outs- it’s kind of the real deal bar that’s a dying breed in the city– think Cheers).

AVOID:

Fanuiel Hall- It’s a tourist trap and NOTHING of value is good there

The Financial District- there’s no restaurant or business worth visiting

Mattapan, Roxbury, Dorchester, Mission Hill- unless you want to get to see the nitty-gritty side of the city or waste time travelling way outside, don’t bother. It’s mostly residential

You can also go on a boston sunset cruise, it’s a different kind of experience seeing Boston from that angle… and the ticket was not expensive at all.

MeandMyLouboutins:  Regina Pizza in the north end. There’s usually a line out the door but it’s the best pizza in boston. Also it’s pretty cheap.

LegallyBrunetteBee:  +1,000,000 Don’t let the line scare you. It moves quickly. The longest I’ve waiting after a Bruins game was maybe 15 minutes.

Eastern Standard is my favorite. The cocktails are stellar and the food is excellent. 

Drink in the Seaport is also a great place for cocktails. Plus, it’s walking distance from the water and MoMA. 

For a stunning view over drinks, Top of the Hub is always an option, but it’s pricey. 

State Park is a lot of fun – southern cooking from the people behind Hungry Mother – but it’s small and tends to be crowded. 

Area Four down the way is also great. Really good pizzas and beer list. 

Sel de Terre is down on Boylston and features a nice ambience and good French food, plus it’s close to Newbury St, Boston’s premiere shopping district.

We like Paparazzi on Newbury. They have a lovely sweetheart table alone on a balcony looking down on Newbury.
