Belle Isle Seafood

That's the place. I called them by phone the day before. They don't monitor the radio...$20 for lunch..pretty standard.

If you need much water, be sure to follow the channel...Capt Jacks is a few docks before the bridge. If you go under the bridge you went too far.

I was there the afternoon that you went. I was in a small boat and had been tol there was a dock outside. Unfortunately, it was gated and we couldn't find a dock.

I went back this week and docked at Capt Vikings, a 5 min walk.

Great fried clam plate and broiled haddock.

My new favorite Boston Harbor boat accessible place...didn't really have an old favorite.

New Bedford/Fall/River/Fairhaven/Westport/SE Mass

In Fall River, I used to like Sagre's.

My last trip they had a fire but the owner answered the phone and sent us to TA Seafood..loved the grilled octopus..very casual.

Maryland style crabs near Boston

The crabs in the bushels in Chinatown are the same crabs as used in MD Crab style.

I don't love it for the pure cuisine but fun for the social aspect.

Seem to taste better when I'm looking at the Chesapeake..:)

Breakfast near XV Beacon please?

I stop in at Hungry Traveler from time to time.

I've never found their breakfast sandwiches to be any better or worse than most other places.

They do have a few Korean dishes that are worthwhile at lunch.

First trip to Boston

We really enjoyed taking the ferry to Salem for a day..including PEM and Scratch Kitchen.

The ferry stops about a 10 min walk from "downtown" but last summer there was a trolley that took you into town and would be great for an elderly person who might have trouble making the walk.

First trip to Boston

top deck only..not a full tour..underwhelming imo

Romantic restaurant, South Shore

Oro is terrific. Not waterview but very close. A walk along the harbor before or after is nice.

I haven't been to Tesoro, yes..much more casual. pretty sure it has water views..maybe drinks before/after?

One dinner, one lunch in Charleston

I recently had the same question.

I had a res for lunch at Husk and light dinner at the bar at Fig.

I was pleased with my choices.

First trip to Boston

why do you say to skip the clams?

I get the clams often and like them..bigger the better..haven't had the oysters in a while.

I don't think they are still open in July: unless something changed this years

best bagel in boston?

OMG supplies the new Roche Bros DTX. I find them to very good; right up there as my favorite in town.

I think Bagelsaurus is better (than pretty much everything) but I'm very happy to have OMG so convenient.

Budapest itinerary?

Thx all

I have these places on my list..just a question of where we feel like going..sure I can't go wrong..age old question of "where do I go in a very limited time?"

i'm actually rethinking "first night" and next to the hotel may get the call.

We don't go til October. I'll report on where we end up.

Tacos at Tenoch, Medford Sq. and Taco Loco, East Somerville

I'm a fan of the Tenoch in the North End. Their Campecena Torta is fantastic.

Fantasy Question for Boston Old Timers

LinkedIn shows an Odette Bery teaching cooking at a school in the UK.

We were neighbors and friends in the 70/80s and I'd bump into her on Charles St now and then more recently..while she was at Wellesley.

A move to the UK and teaching would see seem very plausible.

Casual Sushi Rec

If you can expand your geographic area to Broad and Milk St near the Finanial District, Sakura Bana is excellent. Sushi bar, tables or takeout.

Soft shell crabs

Peach Farm Seafood in Chinatown has fresh soft shell crabs. I haven't made it there yet this year but they always do a good job..salt and pepper fried.

I had them fried at Xinh Xinh in Chinatown..ok but a little heavy on the batter.
