Boston - requesting help with itinerary/restaurants

Jump to last reply

I'm meeting an old friend from DC in Boston. He hasn't spent much time there, I live in NH and have been there enough times to have general familiarity with getting around and what the sights are.
My SO and I arrive in Boston around noon on Friday. All of us are staying at Park Plaza, we'll meet up and head out for lunch. Any suggestions? we want quick but not "fast food", so we can get out and starting sightseeing.
I was thinking we head over to the waterfront, walk around, go to the Aquarium, walk through North End/do some of the Freedom Trail, and have dinner in North End. A co-worker recommended Tresca's. Any thoughts on this choice? I'd be looking for a place that isn't too noisy, so maybe small-ish, with some atmosphere, and really good food (not necessarily fancy combinations -- we don't need crystallized nasturtiums on our salad).
Saturday morning, maybe breakfast at Charlie's or Mike & Patty's, was thinking walk around Beacon Hill, see Louisburg Square.
Looking for lunch spot.
Isabella Stewart Gardner opens at 11, their website indicates they have a cafe in the new addition that looks nice, but kind of limited and kind of pricey. Would be interested in small lunch spot that has interesting/ethnic/decent food that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Dinner at Legal Seafood (SO's sole request for the weekend -- must accommodate to keep the peace).
Boston Globe has huge ad for free ballet performance Saturday night on the Common. If isn't too cold, we'll go to that.
Sunday morning, maybe dim sum in Chinatown.
SO: based on where we're staying the things we'd like to do, does any Fodorite have any suggestions for Friday afternoon or Saturday or Sunday mornings, activities or lunch spots, and Friday dinner?
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
Gail
