I'm going to be in Boston July 20th-26th with the Letter Carrier's Convention. In both Philadelphia and Las Vegas, we were able to have excellent multi-course meals at a very reduced price at a culinary school restaurant open in the evening. Is there one in the Boston area that's near to public transportation, as none of us will have cars. We're staying near the Convention Center. Or can you recommend a good but not expensive restaurant (preferably Italian or seafood) that can handle 25 to 50 people? Thanks for any help. [Go here to post a reply.]

I don't think there are any culinary schools in the Boston area that have restaurants (at least ones that are open in the summer, anyway). Your best bet might be to go to a large restaurant, as you mention in the last part of your question. Some good ones that come to mind that have lots of room include Eastern Pier on the South Boston waterfront (Hong Kong-style Chinese seafood restaurant), Legal Test Kitchen, also on the waterfront (seafood), Ricardo's in the North End (Italian), and Fiore's, also in the North End (Italian).

Le Cordon Bleu in Cambridge is purported to be opening an on-site restaurant later in 2008.
