Boston is one of the largest and oldest cities in the United States. When visiting the city and all the historic sites, make sure to leave plenty of time to try the varied cuisine Boston has to offer. With options ranging from their famous seafood to an entire Italian neighborhood, it’s no surprise Boston is one of the more popular New England cities. And with cheap flights to Boston, all the delicious food will be right under your nose!
The closeness of Boston to the New England coast brings some of the freshest seafood to the table. Dishes like cod, lobster and of course the famous clam chowder are not to be missed. Open since 1826, the Union Oyster House should definitely be a top restaurant on your list of places to go. It’s a great stop along the famous Freedom Trail, and a short distance from the famous Faneuil Hall. Faneuil Hall also happens to be a great casual spot to grab a bite to eat. Inside, you’ll find several seafood stands that serve up the must have lobster rolls. And if you can’t get enough of the New England seafood, you’ll also want to try Legal Seafoods, with one of their restaurants located right on the water.

If you’ve had a bit too much seafood, or just aren’t a fan, not to worry! There are plenty of options outside of seafood, and the best one happens to be located in Boston’s North End neighborhood. The North End is Boston’s Little Italy, and happens to be a lot bigger than the one you’ll find in New York City. Some of the best places for dinner and lunch include Galleria Umberto, Al Dente and Benevento’s. And if you want dessert after, head over to Mike’s Pastry Shop for one of their famous cannoli’s, but be prepared to wait in line for a bit (don’t worry, it’s worth the wait!).
If you’re looking for something else, Boston is a big enough city that there’s plenty more outside of just seafood and Italian food. The Chinatown area of Boston not only serves authentic Chinese cuisine, but also a variety of Japanese and Korean restaurants to choose from. Vegetarians are well represented with options at places like the Grasshopper Vegan Restaurant. And while there are plenty of Irish pubs to pick up a pint at, Trina’s Starlight Lounge comes highly recommended for classic cocktail lovers.
