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

I am looking for a fun place for a group of 10 High School Seniors to eat after they go to Escape the Room on a Friday evening in early May. Could you accommodate this? What is your average price per person? There would be no alcohol, just food!
