We had guests visiting from DC so we wanted to show them as much of Boston as possible. So we hit Darryl's Kitchen for superb soul food and jazz on Friday night, then Warren Tavern in Charlestown for some surprisingly good New England lunch in a cozy colonial atmosphere, then an incredible late night dinner at PARK in Harvard Square, the place was slamming but everything was pitch perfect, especially that magnificent trout that I had, and finally a lovely Dim Sum Brunch at Myers+Chang for Easter.

Eastern Standard! No restaurant week dinner menu (boo hiss), but as always, bomb food/cocktails anyway.

Does @UnionSqDonuts count? I went there for amazing donuts for brunch Sunday.
