Very reliable food and excellent waitstaff. Overall, menu was a little high for lunch, but the kitchen was very accommodating to make us fish sandwich, which was not on the menu. Great environment for business conversation.

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
