    I have not used a commercial dry cleaner for my shirts for years, but I will be on assignment in Boston (from my home in LA) for several months, living out of a hotel. I hate the thought of subjecting my shirts to a commercial laundry, but...Can anyone recommend a good dry cleaner in Boston?

    Befriend your concierge. He'll send them somewhere nice. And if you're staying for a while, he'll be a good guy to know.

    There's a place on Harvard Ave. in Brookline. I forget the name of it -- Georgio's maybe?

    I will highly recommend French Cleaners, located at 130 Dartmouth street, 617-424-8084 ( opposite the entrance to the Back Bay train station ) they also have a location at 538 Tremont Street, 617-338-4692. The owner, Joe Baldwin has a passion for perfection in his delivered product and will do hand pressing.
    They also provide pick-up and delivery within a certain proximity to their establishments. Tell him Drinkwater's sent you.

    Some years ago, when I was in grad school in Boston, I used Jean Palmer Drycleaners. Expensive, I seem to recall, but worth it. Don't know if they're still in business...

    Jean Palmer - much better than French Cleaners, however they do not do shirts. They are located in Woburn, MA. Pricey but worth every penny.

    I can second French. We've got a townhouse nearby, and have used them. But I also think Dependable Cleaners (a chain) to be pretty good.
