We are moving soon from San Diego to Boston and just went to Boston to find housing and schools and know now that we will live in Watertown.
Obviously we will go through old posts here and on Chowhound (and other sources) to start creating long lists of different restaurants we might be interested to visit but I also thought it would be great if people here in Boston could help me to start filling in such lists with their favorite restaurants. I have separated the list in different countries and would be curious to see what restaurants people would recommend for the different countries (and I am aware that most countries have strong regional differences but I didn’t want it to be too complicated but please add if you have restaurants covering a special region). Also I know traffic in Boston can be tough but we are often willing to drive for good/interesting food in San Diego and LA so please mention restaurant all over the Boston Area.
High end restaurants (we like tasting menus a lot and often set some up with chefs):
Pizza (especially looking for Napolitanean style):
Japan (including sushi):
Steakhouse (we rarely eat much meat but what are places with high quality (grass-fed preferred) meat):
Cocktailbars (we love good cocktails):
Beer (SD has one of the best beer scenes in the world and we hope there are places in Boston with a great beer selection):
Anything I missed:
Thanks a lot for the help
