I have a friend coming in from CA for a visit, most likely a day up in Boston will be part of the activities. A request was made, not to look for the best chowdah place, but for the best Boston Baked Beans to be had. You guys have any suggestions?<br><br>
I never eat beans so I can't answer your question directly. But, if I were taking someone to Boston for the first time (has this person been to Boston before?) I would take them to Quincy Market for lunch. <br><br>***Leoville
I would vote for Quincy Market too. One can walk into the North End and see the Old North Church, behind it the Paul Revere Statue then back to Faneuil Hall. That walk gives you a good idea of the huge change that the Big Dig has done to the area. <br><br>Someone who wanted to come to Boston to eat Boston Baked Beans I would explain to them that they are insane and there is no such thing as tasty Boston Baked Beans. Buy some of the sugary hard red things in a little pot at the Quincy Market to take home.<br><br>Durgin Park in Quincy Market for the seafood platter and indian pudding for desert and you've got the real taste of Boston. Nobody eats baked beans in Boston. I'm sure you can order some baked beans and hot dogs at Durgin Park but your waiter will snicker. Even the Minute Men hated the beans. If you want to eat what they ate order some johnny cake at Durgin.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
I was admittedly a bit skeptical about the bean thing, but hey, I figured it didn't hurt to ask. (And the thought of substituting those odd little candies did cross my mind, too.) I'd just as soon haul the bean pot out of storage and make them at home, prolly be better that way anyway.<br><br>Quincy Market was on the list, it seemed mellow enough, we're not looking for a jam packed day of sightseeing or anything. Then again, there's always the Science Museum, haven't been there in ages - is the musical staircase still functioning?<br><br><br><br><br>
Yes, the musical staircase is working fine. We went to see Bodyworks 2 last weekend. That was a pretty interesting exhibit. A lot of penises for a ten year old girl to be shocked about.<br><br>You could take a Duck Boat ride from there too. <br><br>
