Went apres theater and had a wonderful meal. Waiter was good and attentive, but meal was delivered by someone else who did not know who got what and was defensive when asked a question. Food was excellent, although special menu was slightly confusing

for ballet night at the Boston Opera House. Caesar salad could feed 3 for first course. Tuna special cooked to perfection. Lamb shank could have had a more flavorful taste. White bean accompaniment perfect. Bread pudding and ice cream nice ending.

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
