Ten best things to eat in Boston

Went into Boston for our anniversary yesterday and had the hot lobster roll at Neptune. Delicious and what a great atmosphere. I'm chipping away at my list, above.

Lobster Rolls and Chowder near Fenway Park

Remy's was too crowded so no report from me.

Didn't eat at ICOB either. We got a dinner invite from Fenway Writers' Series so feasted on a buffet dinner provided by Eastern Standard. So many of the items were so good for buffet options, that I can't wait to try a meal in their restaurant.

Bleacher Bar did not disappoint. We had the middle table in front of the window that looks onto Fenway Park and there were thousands of people in there for the open house. Had a Blue Moon beer, chicken breast sandwich, and their homemade chips.

Had a beer and a pretzel with mustard in Fenway Park. Opening show was awesome! Game was a major disappointment. I can't imagine another chance to see all of those historic baseball players any other time in my lifetime.

Thanks for the info and I'll be there for the afternoon part. And maybe I'll even get an autograph tomorrow. (There will be autograph signings throughout the day as fans have an opportunity to walk the warning track, peek inside the Green Monster scoreboard and visit other spaces within the ballpark not normally available or accessible to fans.)

Hoping that they open Remy's deck earlier than the website says... The roof deck is open daily from May 1st to October 31st ~ Hours 11:00 am to 10:00 pm.
If not, will have to enjoy all those big screen tvs inside, along with pints.

Ten best things to eat in Boston

Thanks for all of the great tips. Sox are back in Boston and I'll be doing my bimonthly trips to Boston. I want to try, in no particular order, these from your top tens:
cubano, chez henri (harv sq)
chilean sea bass wrapped in banana leaf at Tremont 647
gnocchi at Union Bar and Grill
chicken tikka masala at Tanjore
Hot Fudge Sundae at Abe & Louie
the bread pudding at Oleana
prune stuffed gnocchi- No. 9 Park
Shrimp with yellow chives at Taiwan Cafe
Crab with Ginger and Scallion (Taiwan Cafe)
Burnt Sugar Ice Cream: Christina's
sticky buns @ flour
gruyere croissants at Clear Flour Bakery in Allston
hot lobster roll at Neptune
Sticky Toffee Pudding, Ashmont Grill
Char Siu Bao (steamed BBQ Pork Buns) at Hei La Moon

My favs in Boston are tasting menu paired with wines at No 9 Park, dim sum at China Pearl, hazelnut gelato @ Caffe Paradiso, Garlic Shrimp at King & I, any pizza from Pizzeria Regina (North End), seafood risotto at iL Villaggio, sausage/pepper/onion grinder outside of Fenway, homemade chips at Bleacher Bar, clam chowder at Union Oyster, and vegetarian chili at Tridents Booksellers (on Newbury Street).

I stay away from hot dogs in Fenway Park ever since they switched from Fenway Franks to whatever they are now.

True that -- I've given up buying any food in the park.
Getting ready for the 100th anniversary game (snagged tickets through the lottery).
Planning to eat at:
Bleacher Bar
Island Creek Oyster Bar
and will try Remy's place for the first time.

Reviews of Kenmore 30" freestanding stainless gas range 72333?

I haven't bought yet but I'm also looking at a Kenmore gas range, similar to what you are viewing, but with a non stainless top. It does have five burners, warming oven, and great stainless knobs. At 30% off, it's a bargain.
Model# 72903
Wondering which surface top would be easier to clean?

Asian market near Springfield, MA?

Not sure if they have tofu skin, but I do my shopping here:
The Asian Market, 17 Pomona Street, in Springfield.
It's not far from The X in Springfield. It's in the same location as the old Pomona Market.
