Best places to eat in Boston/Cambridge

Going up for a work trip next week and would like to hit up some good restaurants.

If you're familiar with the area give me some good spots both in Boston and in Cambridge!

What's the best spot for a lobster roll, best Korean BBQ?

in cambridge i used to go to spices which is siamese and thai. also insomnia cookies for fresh hot cookies at any time of day/night.
not korean bbq, but the fried chicken at Bon Chon is the SHIT thats near brighton i believe.
Asmara restaurant is great for ethiopian food.
Italian is in the north end- favorite spot is Panza- i would love to have their calamari and seafood pasta. from there i would go to cafe vittoria for their tiramisu.
James hook and Co for lobster roll and lobster mac and cheese.
Toro boston had some of the best mexican corn ive ever had.
they also have a fogo de chao there, which is IMO the best Brazilian steakhouse.

Fogo is the best Brazilian steakhouse. I get the meat sweats when I leave. if you go during lunch it's like $30ish instead of $60.

Last time I was in Boston, my friends and I stayed at the Eliot Hotel, right down the street from Fenway. They have a sushi restaurant named Uni in the lower level that has delicious late-night ramen on the weekend. Give it a try if you’re in Back Bay.

https://uni-boston.com

Speaking of Fenway, we ate surprisingly yummy BBQ at a place called Sweet Cheeks, right before attending a Red Sox-Yankees game. I had a fantastic lobster roll at famous sports bar The Fours just before heading to see U2 at TD Garden (yeah, it was a full weekend). Enjoyed excellent seafood at Atlantic Fish Company, also in Back Bay

New York. Better food and better city. Just kidding. I have to say that cuz I'm a Yankees fan.


You have to go to the North End for Italian. Traditional places like Bacco are excellent. One of my favorites is Mamma Maria. Up a cobblestone street and looks like an old mansion. Great Italian food with a fusion twist.

Oh, I forgot about breakfast!

We went to the famous Paramount in Beacon Hill, but although the food was good, I'm not sure it was worth the long wait. We had an equally good breakfast (delicious Belgian waffle and challah French toast) upstairs at Trident Booksellers & Cafe in Back Bay, and our waitress there was a total sweetheart. Another nice thing about Trident is if there's a wait, you can browse the store.

I actually had Neptune Oyster during my first week of training last week! We walked by Mike's Pastry and the line was out onto the street I couldnt believe it

The earliest day I'll be able to go out to eat any of my days there will be at around 12:30 pm so I'll see if I can hit up a breakfast spot!

Island Creek Oyster Bar
Select Oyster Bar - Backbay
Nebo - great Italian (vegetarian/zucchini lasagna; aka the Bobby Flay throwdown winner)

And my favorite: Sorellina, near the public library (save room for the tiramisu)
