My husband and I spent last weekend in Boston. We were extremely pleased with our hotel, the Langham, and with one of our two dinners. We dined at Lucca and ate very well. Our dinner at the Union Oyster House was expensive and the food quite ordinary.
I tried to get us a good hotel rate through Priceline, but wasn't successful. I used their secondary system and booked us at the Langham - expensive, but not as bad as the rack rate.
Lucca, in the North End, was a delight. The food was imaginative, well served, and delicious.
