Celebratory Lunch near Faneuil Hall

I recently learned that I passed the Massachusetts bar exam and am being sworn in at Faneuil Hall the week after next. The swearing-in ends just before lunchtime. Since several family members will have just endured hours of boring speeches--and since I myself would like something of a sense of occasion--I'd like to go out to a nice lunch thereafter. We can't go far because some of us will be going on to a meeting near the Aquarium. I assume hundreds of other new lawyers are going out to lunch with their families, too, so I'd prefer to go somewhere that accepts reservations.

All thoughts appreciated.

Best Fried Chicken

I'm a big fan of the fried chicken at Strip T's, though some might be a little daunted by the fact that the claw is still attached.

Your food truck favorites?

Though I didn't love the Double Awesome, I'm a big fan of Mei Mei in general. Their menu changes frequently, so it's usually best to ask the staff (who are extremely friendly) what they are recommending on any given day. I was recently steered to Jenny's Yu Xiang Eggplant and Tofu and it was delicious. I remember also being impressed with the beef and blue cheese dumplings I had a few months ago.

Crema Cafe

I'm with you on the twice-baked brioche from Flour, but I'm not especially partial to the almond "croissants" at Crema. They're cheesy and more like danishes than croissants--I didn't like them at all the one time I tried them. If you're going to be breakfasting at Crema, you might want to try the English muffins with butter and jam; at $1.50 plus tax, they're one of the only deals in Harvard Square.
