My imagination, or is Stop&Shop getting good again?

I used to shop in that Star market, I liked it.

My imagination, or is Stop&Shop getting good again?

It depends on the location, but overall I would say it is your imagination. I do go to a local stoppie, they often have whole chickens on sale for a great price.
Like you said, it is pricey. Those union bosses have to get paid. I think the meats and fish are better at Shaws, especially one which I love shopping at in Canton.

In Search of Great Fish Chowder in RI/South Coast MA

BOS to Newport

Monday traffic from Logan to Newport at rush hour is tough. I hope you lucked out and moved along. What you should have done is have taken exit 25 from the Ted William tunnel which puts you in the Seaport District. There are parking lots and meters all over the place.
Yankee Lobster is over by the water heading to the Marine Industrial Park. Free parking in the rear and a nice casual place with outside seating. Possibly the best clam chowder in Boston and it has the best seafood chowder.

In Search of Great Fish Chowder in RI/South Coast MA

You are right about finding great fish chowder. Where did you end up? In Boston the best place is Yankee Lobster which is located in the Seaport District as you enter the Marine Industrial Park.

Best brunch option in Beacon Hill

Skip the Paramount for Brunch but try it for breakfast or even a lunch around three when you can sit up front against Charles Street.

You will get lots of ideas, I would travel a little over to the Financial District to the Langham Hotel.

Seaport or Theatre District Recommendations for dinner?

First time in The Seaport District? Chowder at Yankee lobster is a must. A little hole in the wall which suits fine for lunch.

After, walk around and inside Legals and the other restaurants at Libertywharf. I never thought any to be loud but I am not there every night.

Canton Area lunch options (where I-95 and I-93 meet)

I like the Chateau and think their lasagna is pretty good. On the down side, cleaning tables seems to be a dying art here. People leave after dinner and their table remains messy for too long.

Canton Area lunch options (where I-95 and I-93 meet)

I would stick to what I know and head to Legacy. The other option is heading over to Norwood Center. Walk around a bit and check out what is there. Parking is easy, and there is plenty to pick from.
Canton Center is tough to park and busy with traffic. Same goes for Cobb's Corner but Chinatown on the stoughton part of Cobb's Corner is very good. Ask for Simon for a waiter.

ice cream stand?

Yes and hopefully the cows are out. If the lines are long outside, go inside. You are supposed to buy something like milk but they don't really care.

Norwood area lunch

I have heard the place at wiggins is pretty good. I would not go there over Legacy Place. Wiggins isn't exactly looking at Logan, it is a pretty dreary place.

Graduation Lunch Near Northeastern With A Child

Congrats. I just checked out their Web and it is at The Matthews Arena. Not exactly in the middle of the campus but close enough in the mass ave direction.

Yes, at night Yankee Lobster has a waitress/waiter. At least when I am there. During the day you place your order and sit.

Mapquest has the walk to Yankee at one mile and 19 minutes. Out the back of the hotel and over the Moakley Bridge, it is probably 15 minutes top at an average pace. I don't think it is as long as a mile. Anyway, it is a nice scenic walk with lots to take in.

ok, thanks. I keep forgetting that they finally got in line with other college graduations. Back in the day they graduated late in June.

Yes, Yankee Lobster is worth the short walk. On your way walk around the Commonwealth Pier for a great view of the Harbor.
Yankee Lobster has the best chowder in town. It is a small place with outside seating. It is more geared to lunch but doable for dinner. Their fish stew is also very good. Walk in back of Legal's as well for a nice view of the harbor and logan.

Suggestions near Marblehead

My friends just went to the Landing yesterday. They gave it great reviews. The Landing has been in Marblehead forever.

Hook lobster is right next to your hotel. It will have a few picnic tables or you can go over to the greenway or the park that leads to the children museum. It does not have inside eating but the chowder and lobster bisque is great,

The North End is the place to go. Walk around and check out all the menus.

Graduation Lunch Near Northeastern With A Child

The spring graduation isn't normally at the campus but usually at the Boston TD Garden. If this is the case and you are not going back to NU, you have the North End at your foot steps.
I think your son will enjoy the north end with its bakeries and interesting store fronts.

Restaurants with Parking

If you are going to eat in the North End during the day, it seems that parking on Hanover and Salem street is a snap. At least from what I see on the thread "I am a victim of their success".

I am a Victim of Their Success

Without a resident sticker, you have to be the luckiest person in the world if you get a space. I walk up and down Salem and never see an empty space,

You got a spot on Salem Street and then didn't get a ticket? I believe it's all resident parking. I hope you played the lottery that day

Providence Weekend with Toddler - Hotel at the Airport - Want to still eat some good food!

I will go to legal's once a year or so but refuse to order their chowder. It is made up at their commissary and distributed in plastic bags. I would rather have it where it is made on site and within a few hours of my arrival.

Which Boston-Cambridge restaurants have been around since the 1980s?

Toscano's on Charles Street from the early 80's. Grill 23 no doubt the 80's.

Airport dining

Keep in mind that the terminals are separate so you are limited to where you are boarding. A is the newest terminal so If boarding here you are in good shape to kill time. Terminal B and even C are the pits imho, so if boarding here I would def head to the seaport district.

Your other option is eat over at the Logan Hyatt. Afterward there a nice walking path along the harbor with a great Boston View.
