Re: Restaurants in the area?

If you're new to the city or taking the T in from out of town, this is where you can get advice from people living in The Hub. Please keep discussion limited to things in and around Boston.

There is plenty of places to eat within a 15 minute walk go to google maps and look around the area. Most are on Hunnington, Mass ave, and Boylston itself. You find everything from Wendy''s and BK to high end sit down. Also the Star Market under the skybridge has a pay per pound hot bar with breakfast, lunch and dinner items depending on time of day.

I propose we make this a Master Thread for all things eating around the Hynes ^_^

As noted in separate threads the UNOs on Boylston St. and the Au Bon Pain the the Prudential Center across from the Hynes Entrance both closed a few months back.

I heard another restaurant or two could move into where the UNOs was since that's what it's been zoned for so we'll see.

Fire + Ice, down near Park Plaza, is an interesting place.
All you can eat, but you choose from the ingredients they have and they cook them for you on a huge circular grill. They have rice and tortillas available to go with the food.

Great place to go on pre-reg pickup Thursday, as it shouldn't be too crowded.

A new option has cropped up in the area. Clover Food Lab has opened a new location at 565 Boylston St. It’s on the high end of cheap, but the food is REALLY good. It’s one of my go to’s for breakfast. Some good vegetarian and vegan options.

I'm a HUGE Dropkick Murphys fan, so eating at their bar/ restaurant is always a must for my friends and I when we come to Anime Boston. It's found on Boylston Street across the street from the convention center.

The Pour House is also a good place. Also right across Bolyston St (in fact, right next door to McGreevy's)

I always recommend either The Poor House and McGreevy's. The prices are reasonable and the food is really good. They do however, get crowded. there is another place, not to far at 14 Westland Ave, Boston, MA 02115. It's called Ichiban ---> https://www.ichibanboston.net/

Up Belvedere St and across Mass ave is a great little spot called Love Art Sushi. Went there for lunch yesterday and it’s really good.

For breakfast, Flour Bakery is up the street. A bit further up Boylston is Clover Food Lab.

If you want to travel a touch further by the Back Bay T stop is Friendly Toast. They have some unique and delicious stuff. Breakfast lo mein? Heck yes!

I went recently. They have remodeled since I was last there. They seem to have gotten rid of the rice and the tortillas. Still plenty of yummy food to eat.

The threads in question for future reference:

* "Uno on Boylston closed"

* "Au Bon Pain at Hynes Closing"

Also:

* "Top of the Hub/Skywalk Closing in April 2020" (after the con)

And:

* "Seafood Options"

Edit: waynoinsano: Would you please be so kind as to change the "Resturants" in the thread title to "Restaurants"? :oops:

My go to place is Teriyaki House on Boylston in the Berklee College of Music area as you tend to get a lot of food for the amount you pay.

For those late night con goers, Tasty Burger at Back Bay Station is a good option since they close at 2 am Friday and Saturday.

Thornton’s Restaurant on Huntington ave. If you exit the pru from the Barnes n Noble/Cheesecake Factory Side cross the street and take a right you’ll see it and all it’s glory. Good diner and comfort food. But that was years ago last I went I hope it still holds up.

Looks like it's still there :-) but with all the places that have closed, this list is going to need a major update.
