A couple meals in Boston for SoCal Hound

Thanks for the recommendations, everyone!

It was a whirlwind, so I wasn't able to get to all the places I might have hoped for. I did make my way over to ICOB--only to find it full at 6:15 even at the bar. The perils of dining there on the day of a Sox game, I guess.

I did have a nice dinner at Russell House Tavern in Cambridge. Enjoyed the seared scallops and nice cocktails, too.

With any luck, I'll be back to try some more.

A couple meals in Boston for SoCal Hound

Hi all,

I'm flying into Boston Sunday afternoon for a job interview on Monday (I'll be leaving Tuesday afternoon). I'm going to be staying near the Pru and am looking for a couple good meals during my trip. Anything within walking distance would be great, but I'm happy to take a short trip on the T if necessary. I'll most likely be dining solo, so a place with a bar that's friendly for a solo traveler would be great.

Food-wise, I'm open to all all sorts of recommendations--I love all international cuisines and get to try a plethora of them out here in CA. I'll be having 2 dinners and 1 lunch. Price-wise, cheap is great, but I don't mind something a bit more expensive so long as it's not too formal. (ICOB perhaps? Or something along those lines?)

Thanks so much!

Is it possible to buy Buah Keluak in Southern California?

Never seen it in a market but you can at least eat it at Merry's House of Chicken in West Covina:

They do indeed validate parking.

There's a full review in Long Beach's alt-weekly, the District.
