The popular food blog, Eater, does an essential 38 restaurants for NYC, SF, LA, MIAMI, and PDX, and thought it would be cool to gather up a list of Boston's essential restaurants. Let's keep the list to 20 and mainly to Boston, Cambridge, and close suburbs. High-End, low-end, dives, ethnic, whatever you feel defines the Boston dining scene. What do the Boston area chowhounds think?
Reading a lot of best of the decade, best of 2009, etc articles lately and thought a chowhound topic would be interesting. So one of each...

Lets hear bostons chowhound opinons
When is the sidewalk BBQ? I have been a few times to formaggio and loved it/spent way to much money on cheese/meats/oil/vinegar/pasta/wine/fruit/etc etc. Possibly my favorite shop I have been to in town. Havent been to Boston location yet though.
Hi all, Just moved to Boston (beacon hill area) from NYC and trying to make myself a list of places to try. Haven't used Chowhound before, but being in a new city, it might help me narrow down some of my picks, and sift out any duds. So far I'm looking to try Toro, No. 9 Park(ate here once when I was in town), Drink, B&G oyster, Butcher Shop, Neptune Oyster, Oya, Eastern Standard, and Hammersleys Bistro. What is a cab fare to cambridge run? Craigie(sp) on main and Hungry Mother also make my list so far. Which of these places should I skip, if any, and what places am I missing that I should get to asap. Thanks for any advice in advance.
