Is Fluffernutter a regional New England "delicacy" or is it nationally known?

Restaurants in/near Charlestown

Will be staying in Charlestown and looking for restaurant recommendations ($25-$40 entrees) in the area - but not Back Bay or Downtown

A Brookline Primer

I'm on the North Shore now - but lived in Cleveland Circle for 15 years.
a) Leary's on Beacon St. near St. Mary's T stop. Wonderful Irish stew with Guiness and other comfort foods. Nice atmosphere.
b) Soul Fire on Harvard Ave. This is a relatively new place but very good ribs and sides. They pay attention to the smallest details which is a nice change.
c) Presto's Pizza late at night. Their pizza is good during the day - but best at night after 9:00. Not sure why .
d) Moogy's on Chestnut Hill Ave. They cater to the student population but have great variety for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Interesting menu-but everyone can find something they like. Never had bad food there and I've tried most of the menu. Steak subs are killer.

e) DOWNHILL ALERT: Bluestone Bistro. This used to be a rare gem especially the pizza, calzones and veggie lasagna - but the new owners ruined it. The quality of ingredients has slipped and the food is barely edible.

Who serves chocolate fondue?

A friend is coming to Boston on Saturday with her daughter and three friends to celebrate her 16th birthday. Where can we go for chocolate fondue ? I've suggested the Chocolate Buffet at the Langham -but that is steep at $30 each.
