The reason I asked if the kids were geeky is because you're not too far from the Miracle of Science bar/grill. It's not specifically kid oriented, but it has burgers, quesadillas, chicken skewers, and other kid friendly options. What makes it fun is that it's science-themed (it's next to MIT), with chemistry lab tables and the menu laid out like a periodic table (with common themes in vertical groups, naturally). It's right next to the MIT Museum, which is small but fun and also worth a look.

How is the transit? I guess it's called the T? I spent years riding the NYC subways, so that doesn't bother me. It just looks like the best way to get to some places is on the train. I'll have a car, but don't really want to drive or take a taxi if I don't have to.

Food hits so far have been 75 Chestnut and the Paramount which we loved. Yesterday was rainy and cold, so we spent most of it in the Science Museum.

Ended up walking and cabbing everywhere. Wife wasn't doing the T.
Thanks for all the great recommendations. Really enjoyed eating my way through Boston. Off to the Hamptons tomorrow!
