The Union Oyster House is America's oldest restaurant serving - you guessed it! - oysters, cooked in any way imaginable. If you're a purist like me, you can get them on the halfshell at the raw bar. You can also get lobster there, and I'm pretty sure they offer traditional Boston Baked Beans. Nearby is the Bell in Hand Tavern where you can stop in for a cold one. A bit further on in the North End (Boston's answer to NYC's Little Italy), Italian restaurants and bakeries abound. Be sure to stop in to Mike's Pastry on Hanover Street and have a cappucino and biscotti. Pizzaria Regina's, also in the North End, is a must for pizza.
