If you plan on having drinks with dinner, I love Church. The food is awesome, but the drinks are the fun part. Their specialty drinks are named after the deasly sins & heavenly virtues.

So many great places to eat in Boston depending where you are!

South End: Picco (Italian food) or Orinoco (Venezuelan)

Davis Square: Tu Y Yo (Mexican), and head to the Davis Square Theater to get Richardson’s ice cream for dessert.

Downtown: Papagayo (Mexican), Crumbs (Cupcakes), Kingston Station (American), Al’s (Sandwiches), Sorelle (Sandwiches)

Back Bay: Top of the Hub (pricey, but you get a view of the entire city)

Beacon Hill: The Paramount (American, lunchtime menu is better imo), Beacon Hill Chocolates (Dessert)

lalalalauren:  Myers + Chang is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. It’s a very trendy asian inspired place and the chef is amazing. Their mussels are maybe the best food I’ve ever had.

The Barking Crab is a pretty cool place to hang out with friends especially in the warm weather.

For a quick bite, UBurger has some really good burgers, and Anna’s taqueria has the best mexican quesadillas in Boston in my opinion.

lalalalauren:  TBH I may be a blasphemer, but I wouldn’t eat in the North End. It’s very hyped up and super crowded and overpriced. Though it can’t hurt to stop by Mike’s Pastry for the sake of it. Explore the city if you can ๐Ÿ™‚

lalalalauren:  I agree that the North End can be a bit over hyped, but if you’ve never been it is very quaint and the food is good. I’d vote for Modern Pastry over Mike’s. Skip Regina’s Pizza – it’s WAY overhyped. If you’re feeling like going out and exploring the city and skipping the tourist areas I’d recommend The Salty Pig or the Gallows in the South End, Deep Ellum in Allston (a non-college kid spot in a college kid area), and the Tip Tap Room or Carrie Nation on Beacon Hill. If you wander across the bridge into Charlestown Warren Tavern is very cute and solid food (but nothing fancy).

lalalalauren:  i absolutely love Ristorante Euno in the north end ๐Ÿ™‚ it’s delicious!. Also if you’re looking for good food with view check out the Seaport area. Legals harborside has a great roof deck and Temazcal has incredible margs & guac. Have fun!

lalalalauren:  I love the North End! The main drag can be touristy, but if you go down the side streets you’ll find really nice small restaurants that are absolutely delicious, never been to a bad one. 

Top of the Hub is a really cool experience to see the whole city, though totally overpriced for like 1 bite of food. Might be good for after dinner drinks though.

Ctobin:  I came here to recommend Ristorante Euno! So good!

I gotta say it though, I’m a Mike’s over Modern girl for pastries.

lalalalauren:  You’ve gotten lots of good recommendations, my top two are Neptune Oyster (in the North End, but not Italian) and Row 34 (Seaport/Fort Point area).

If you want traditional Italian food in the North End, I recommend Panza. It’s right on Hanover St. amongst all of the chaos, but it’s so, so good. Pomodoro is really good, too. Also, you’ll probably catch a street festival this weekend, so check that out – always fun.

The little restaurant in the Battery Wharf hotel is good for brunch and drinks on the patio, too! It’s called Aragosta. I used to live literally across the street from there, I love the area – make sure you take a nice walk on the Harborwalk.
