My friend wanted to try Erbaluce as she passes by frequently on her commute. The staff was effusive and enthusiastic about helping us choose our meals. Food was outstanding, I loved their use of pepper.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
