I realize it's too late to be any help this time, but for future reference, Angelina Ristorante on Broadway at Addison is a great little date place. Very cozy and romantic feeling, and the food is good. I'd pick that over Adesso for Italian in the neighborhood any day.

Best deep dish pizza in Chicago?

Lou Malnati's Deluxe with the Buttercrust. Also, add black olives to complete the experience.

Chicago Chowhound visiting Boston this weekend

I thought I read somewhere that the Sausage Guy had closed up shop--this can't be true, can it?

Chicago Chowhound visiting Boston this weekend

Hey all,

My husband and I will be in Boston for our 2nd visit, and I'm looking for good places to eat/hang out. We're staying at the Boston Park Plaza, near the Commons. We're fairly low-key people who simply love to eat (and generally plan our trips around food), so I'm not looking for anything too "scene-y," just great food. Low or mid-price range would be best, and really, any type of food is great, so long as it's the best of its kind. We're not afraid to walk a bit or take transportation within reason.

Last time we were here, we enjoyed Upper Crust pizza (I think we ate 3 large Harvard Squares that weekend--we missed East Coast-style pizza, stuck out here in the deep-dish hinterlands like we are), Rabia's, Mike's Pastries, and a trip up to Bartley's Burgers in Cambridge, if that gives you any conception of what we like.

We'll be at Fenway on Sunday, and possibly up in Cambridge on Monday.

Thanks! And don't hesitate to contact me if you're looking for Chicago recommendations!

Take-home foodie souvenirs from Chicago?

I'd pick up some Vosges chocolates. Their locations can be found at the website (the location on the 2nd? floor of the North Bridge Mall on Michigan Ave. might be the easiest to get to from the regular tourist agenda).
