Yes big john, it was dorchester and roxbury, I also circled the bromley heath projects and the old colony projects as well... Oddly enough I used to live in dorchester, and across the street from the old colony projects, just really not for outsiders.
They are the areas of town where baby mommas get in fights with other baby mommas and you see a liquor store on every corner. Not the nicest areas, and if you are looking for good places to eat, you won't find them in those areas.
One of my favorite quotes that sums up the neighborhood of dorchester would have to be from the day I was sitting on my back porch listening to my neighbor on her porch having a conversation. I only heard one side but it went something like this:
Her: " I'm not threatining you... I'm not threatining you... Look I see your point and I am staying calm... I'm not threatining you."
Breif Pause "someone on the phone says something"
Her: " BITCH ! I'm gonna ****ing kill you!!!!!"
She then threw her phone off of the porch.
I have been to quite a few good places for food in boston, the one drawback to the good places in boston is that they are a little on the pricy side. If you are looking for beer centric, the map and suggestions people have made are excelent. If you are not being a beer centric tourist, and perhaps want to try some fine wine or decent seafood there are other places I can suggest.
Oh and by the way, there is a rock bottom in downtown boston, but I didn't put it on the list, because well it isn't that good. And there are rock bottom's everywhere.
I myself live in the city, so I can confidently say as a beer lover you will most likely like the places listed. As a food lover they are all fairly good but not great. Oh and I marked out the strip clubs and where to pick up hookers as well.
Hey what dates are you going to be in town I might be able to recommend some interesting local events if you already know the dates.
