Weekend in Boston - Food & Shopping Recommendations? - Page 3

post #31 of 46
I'll put up a few good cocktail spots once they come to mind. I was at Blue Room last night. The guy that works there, I think Matt, is very talented. He works for sure Sundays. Made about 7 different non-menu cocktails each one was really great. Check out Drink it's attached to a Barbara Lynch joint, I haven't eaten there. Eastern Standard is always good.

If you want to seem really fucking cool take your friends to back bar in somerville. It is an absolute bitch to actually find, you'll probably need to ask someone where it is.

I have no idea if I've written about these places.

Cool, thanks man. Price point of sushi place pretty flexible as long as it's not outlandish.

Looks like Lord Hobo has a good bar list. Not sure I want to patronize a place with such an obnoxious name, though.

Myers & Chang is terrible - it is the most Americanized Asian food you can eat. If you are into that then okay it is good, but I would rather spend my money elsewhere. If you are into brunch, Stella's in the south end has an excellent brunch menu (the owners there, also own myers & chang). B&G Oysters is a must during this time of the year. The best italian food i've had in a long time came from: Da Vinci in the back bay, the burrata was insane.

Makes sense. Will avoid.

Who wouldn't like BRUNCH? It's like the best thing ever.

It's modernized Chinese food. Americanized Chinese would be something like PF Changs, or you know...98% of Chinese restaurants in this country. It's a unique dining experience.

That's some seriously Americanized shit, and what is it with kung fu hamster all over the webpage?

Ate at L'Espalier last night in Boston...loved it.

Am thinking sushi, but reading cursory of reviews of the sushi bars in Boston makes me wonder. Any recommendations for high-end, authentic sushi? I did O Ya a few days back and loved the creativity, but I'm more of a traditionalist. Uni and Oishi look to be highly rated, but reviews seem to focus on rolls and less sophisticated offerings.

I've never had "authentic" sushi, but I can recommend Douzo and Fuyakyu (in Brookline) as some higher-end sushi restaurants - they both receive reasonably high reviews and have a great reputation.

I can't say this enough, but duozo is bullshit.

I looked at some pics on Yelp and notice they use fake wasabi. Not a good sign!

I think I'll avoid the sushi scene (or lack thereof) and do more French or Italian. Plus, I don't know how much I feel like walking 20 minutes to a sushi joint when there are high-end French restaurants about 5 minutes away. It's COLD out there.

My food there (admittedly, it was lunch, but still) was quite bad.

Oishii is easily the best sushi I have had in Boston. I have now had every specialty maki and sushi on their menu and can tell you they are all worth it, though some of them aren't the most imaginative things in the world. "The" Maki and the Kobe beef and pear maki are my two favorite rolls with the foie gras with truffle being my favorite specialty sushi. I personally haven't had any of the entrees from the kitchen, however I have had a few of the cooked appetizers (usually specials that night) and liked what I had. That being said from what others have told me the cooked entrees don't seem to match up price for quality.
