Overview

Well, the first thing anyone is going to tell you is to see Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market. It has tons of shopping/restaurants and Quincy Market is right in the center offering a lot of food stands.

It is all you can eat. I hear they just opened in the downtown area.

It is tough to get in - but it is one of the best restaurants in the Boston area. It is in Charlestown - right next to Boston. The food is excellent. Definitely have a reservation.
