Nice casual dining location in downtown Boston, one block from Boston Commons and close to three T- stops. Food was good. The porterhouse pork chop was covered with blue barriers. Different, but tasty. Would definitely recommend.

Relaxed atmosphere offers an affordable meal in a prime location. Burgers and such are offered for very reasonable prices. Very good quality food and a fun and comfortable atmosphere. Very near the Theater District and Boston Commons.

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
