A friend is visiting for the first week of July, and we’ll be able to get to 6-10 restaurants during that time, as long as they’re within 15 minutes from the T and not too pricey. (Simply because my friend is flying from London and only bringing a certain amount of dollars.)
My tentative list for food so far:
dinner near the airport- Rincon Limeno
brunch- not sure; would like to pick 1-2 from: Banyan, Loyal Nine, State Park, The Frogmore
Asian/Indian- Mala, S&I, Suvaai
Italian- Coppa, Antico Forno
late night- JM Curley or maybe Chinatown
Frank Pepe, Morano Gelato
Are these some of the best in their respective categories? I’ve been to most but not all of them, but it would be helpful to know if any of them have dropped off in quality lately, or if I’m missing any significant categories/restaurants that are more worthwhile, especially new openings. I’m also considering a few options that are farther away from subway stops, like Sarma.
We like Italian and Asian food, but can embrace any cuisine.
Also, as a graduating student, this will be my first time spending a summer in Boston, so I’m looking forward to the experience. We’ve both done most of the touristy stuff, but I was also wondering if there was anything fun to do during the summer in general or just around the 4th of July in particular.
