When you travel to Boston, or “Beantown” as some call it, you’ll discover that it offers a rich variety of local produce and excellent seafood. Maine lobster – from the New England coast – is especially popular. Local specialties include baked beans, cod, and clam chowder. And for dessert, ice cream is not to be missed. Boston is an ice-cream-lover’s paradise, with an astonishing variety of flavours on offer.
There is plenty of international influence in the city, with the North End District, for example, offering a great selection of Italian restaurants. Head to Hanover Street for the best Italian fare. You can also find exceptionally good eateries in Chinatown, Allston and Coolidge Corner.
