Logo   Restaurants in Boston, Massachusetts
Boston boasts America's oldest restaurant, its most famous, some of the best seafood, and enough ethnic restaurants to satisfy the United Nations.



Now you want to know: which is America's oldest restaurant?

The Union Oyster House near Haymarket Square, in operation since 1823.

In the restored Quincy Market building of Faneuil Hall Marketplace, just a block away, there are more than two dozen food shops serving everything from souvlaki to dim sum.

(But for the best selection of dim sum, show up in Chinatown on Sunday morning.)

What's the most famous?

Cheers, of course (even though it's really a tavern rather than a restaurant. The real restaurant is the Hampshire House, upstairs.) You'll hear many foreign accents during your visit—it really is world famous.

The best view of Boston is undoubtedly from the Top of the Hub Restaurant on the 52nd Floor of the Prudential Tower in Back Bay.

Speaking of Back Bay, Newbury Street is the place to stroll and find good little cafes and bistrots.
