The beautiful city of Boston offers an overwhelming amount of venues across the many neighborhoods. However, your Boston experience will not be complete without visiting a Back Bay Restaurant. There is so much to see and experience throughout all of Boston. Whether you are visiting the Financial District, Beacon Hill, Charlestown, Fenway, East Boston, Back Bay or the many other communities of Boston there is history and wonders everywhere.
With so much history and so many places to see, you cannot help but develop a hunger. You do not want your sightseeing experience to be ruined by poor dining. To prevent such an unfortunate event, we have created a few guidelines to help you identify a venue worthy of your time and money. Many simple and basic aspects of a restaurant often go overlooked, but it is these ordinary things that can significantly change your dining experience for better or worse.
One thing we must take into consideration is the name. Yes, simply the name can tell you a lot about a restaurant. If the name is boring and plain well, you cannot expect much more from the restaurant than your typical plain, boring, regular, mundane dining experience. The name needs to stand out, be original and creative. Once you have found a Back Bay Restaurant with a unique name that grabs your attention, make your way into the restaurant and focus on is the host.
Most do not realize it, but the host of a restaurant plays a pivotal role in your experience. How, you ask? Simply put, they are your first encounter with the restaurant and often set the tone of your mood or attitude towards the place. A good host will be smiling, and paying attention to his/her line of customers. They will not be distracted, and should be willing to accommodate you for any special circumstances without making a fuss. At the moment a table is available for you they should signal you properly and guide you to your table. This interaction with your host can make all the difference in determining the utility you receive from your meal.
Imagine, or remember if you have had the unfortunate experience of running into an inattentive, lousy host. Recall the mood in which you found yourself when you were about to order. We all know the type; they are on their phone, not paying any attention, snapping at your every remark, and simply do not care about you, or their job. This contrast of hosts can ultimately decide whether your time at the restaurant will be positive or negative.
