LocalYokel brings you the goods from someone who should know, since you’re in their backyard. This one’s from your EIC, resident of 10 years.
something swank: Sportello (348 Congress St.) is a space age lunch counter.
something secret: Casa Romero (30 Glouceser St) is true Mexican hidden in an alley (totally more romantic than it sounds).
something on-the-go: Clover food trucks (locations vary) can fill you up for $5.
somewhere glam: Ames (1 Court St) is a slick downtown hotel in a historical highrise.
somewhere comfy: Clarendon Square (198 W. Brookline St) is a B&B in a South End brownstone.
somewhere barebones: AirBnB (locations vary) can find you a local bed for around $60.
get some culture: Institute of Contemporary Art (100 Northern Ave), modern architecture + art in one stop.
get lost in DIY land: SOWA Open Market (485 Harrison Ave, seasonal) gives you food, goods and antiques.
get your histoire on: Boston Public Library (700 Boylston St) runs free daily tours.
