Eataly just opened! A nightmare. Claustrophic tourist trap ,with line out door (all time) into Mall. For? burnt pizza? it is a maze. One minute i am looking at fresh fish, then cheese burrata, then in wine bar, back out of wine bar, into olive oil wall ($37 and not organic, really?), then pushed by more tourists, pass pizza again,...

We had reservations for the Top of the Hub restaurant so we walked around the center until then. Lots of shops and restaurants. Would have like to look around a bit more.

Eataly just opened at Prudential Center Boston. This one of a kind experience, a must when visiting Boston. The Eataly has endless amounts of Italian delicious treats; coffees, wines, pastas, breads, cheeses and pastry. It just opened but but check ahead because it was closed on Monday, 5 December 2016 for inventory. You won't be disappointed!

After long awaiting the opening of Eataly Boston, we got to go! We ordered the special of the day which was striped bass. It was expertly prepared and absolutely delicious. The restaurant is in the midst of the market. The atmosphere is exciting!

The Prudential Mall has been undergoing renovation for about 6 months. Now, all the new tenants have not fully opened there are enough new stores to go for a fun shopping experience. If you are a foodie, a must try is Eataly which has replaced the old food court. It is very similar to the one at the Flatiron in... More

One of the few malls in Boston, the Prudential Center boasts a flagship UnderArmer store and a good size Lord and Taylor as well as some nice places for a bite to eat once you've done your shopping.

A mixed feelings, as eataly does. Yo can go simple with a pasta, pizza or expresso o go full luxury with seafood and prosecco. Beautiful design and superior service. Full of details and superior cured ribeeye, cold cuts and cheeses. Try the burrada or one of the breads. Welcome the by supporting the enormous investment in a newly renovated pridential... More

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
