A casually upscale American restaurant & bar. Warm, inviting atmosphere and an attentive, friendly staff. Daily lunch and dinner featured menu items. Validated parking day and night. Live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights.

"I was frankly surprised having remembered this spot as an Applebees for many years. The menu is a bit limited, but you will have some enticing choices. Don't miss out on the clam chowder; I was pleasantly surprised on how it was made and presented; a bit heavy on the cream, however, the taste is worth the try.
All in all a good expericned worthy of a return visit. I could imagine a group of friends sitting and enjoying themselves there for a few hours after work or on a weekend; Plenty of couples as well. The bar was well attended; travelers statying at the hotel and co-workers from what I could venture to guess. Given the location at the hotel; I woudl guess that is what generates a good portion of the crowd.

Bricco’s star has been rising steadily since restaurateur Frank DePasquale revamped the menu to feature modern interpretations of regional Italian dishes. <br><br> Bricco has garnished superlative reviews from food writers in Boston and around the country – Best Guaranteed Meal in the North End and Best Pasta in Boston just two of the most recent accolades. <br><br> The talented kitchen team creates “boutique” Italian food, so-called because it is unique, personal and created for a select and sophisticated diner. The food is complemented by an enoteca (wine bar) with an exceptional selection of all-Italian wines. <br><br> Bricco also offers a sophisticated late night scene. The chic and energetic bar serves up great one of a kind cocktails as well as brick oven pizza with gourmet toppings such as prosciutto and fresh mozzarella from Italy in addition with a full dinner menu. <br>Open 7 days a week 11:oopm – 2:00 a.m.

"Well my daughter and I stopped in for Apps and some Wine prior to heading over to Logan Airport to pick up my wife. The Polenta and Caprese were excellent to say the least. The service was on par with dining at the Ritz. This place is well located on Hanover Street in the North End and steps away from Modern Pastry for those with a sweet tooth.
I will definitely be back to try some of the main courses; if not for the airport run; we would have definitinely stayed for more.
Mangia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The signature dish at Legal Sea Foods – really fresh fish. <br /><br />One of our first restaurants and still a popular lure, we are located on Route 9 in the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center. We are still keeping things fresh at our bar, our open dining room and in our take-out counter and Fish Market. <br /><br />Legal Sea Foods has long proven that a consistent, high quality dining experience never goes out of style. With over 40 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish available throughout the year as well as an award-winning wine list, there’s no doubt why legions of fans have fallen hook, line and sinker. <br /><br />We’ve received a boatload of accolades including “#1 Best Seafood Restaurant” (USA Today, 2013), “Most Popular Boston Restaurant” (Zagat, 2012/2013), “Best Seafood Restaurant” (Improper Bostonian, 2010), “Best Chowder” (Boston Magazine, 2010) and the honor of serving our legendary New England Clam Chowder at every presidential inauguration since 1981.

"They are known for being Fresh, and time and time again, it is. While the menu doesn't change too much aside from speciality fishes, you can always count on Legal's to give you a serving of fresh food that is carefully prepared, I cannot say I have ever had a bad meal there, and I have been going to this restaurant for close to 30 years."

Tavolino is a casual-upscale restaurant serving classic and contemporary Italian dishes. We have twenty gourmet pizzas with a pizza bar at which you can sit as our professional staff perfects their creations. Our wine list has over 150 hand picked selections, seventeen of which are available by the glass. We have a full bar where we invite guests to enjoy all items on our lunch and dinner menus. Our cafe opens at 8:00am daily serving specialty coffee and espresso beverages. We also offer many pastries baked in our hearth ovens.

"For a group of seven to sit comfortaby, enjoy a few drinks, laughs, good service and a fine meal, Tavaiino's is a good landing spot. A good central location for us at Patriot's Place and a return visit for date night or another gathering is on the agenda.
Known for their fine pizza, but try something different every time,, you will not be dissapointed.

"Our fourseome had an excellent dinner to close out 2013; the service, food and ambience were all excellent. Everyone made remarks on how good and fresh their meal was. Defintely a great date night destination, or if you plan ahead, a place to have a group gather for a fine meal and conversation..
I must say that we certainly appreciated the great service as well and accomodating menu selection.
Bon Appetit all
