What type of food are you looking for and what is your price point?

Boston has excellent seafood, a wealth of amazing Italian restaurants in the North End, as well as some other interesting new dining destinations that have opened up recently.

BostonFlyer - I'm looking for a trendy spot in or around the South End where I can actually get a reservation.

Preferably seafood or vegetable focused, something maybe getting a decent buzz as being innovative.

Expensive is fine.

The crazy thing about it is it's also quite affordable, as well as being ridiculously tasty.

I went to Banyan Bar + Refuge the other week. A mix of new england meets Asia. Really cool interior and excellent food. In the south end. Highly recommend.

Seasons 52 is really good and changes weekly. Island Creek Oyster is also awesome.

Seasons 52 is neither new (although I guess it's somewhat new to the Boston area) nor trendy.

Agreed. It's a chain and I found the menu difficult to find things I like on.

It's nice that everything is low-cal there, but to get to those calorie counts they put together some odd combinations

"best" can mean a lot of different things. Prices can vary wildly, too, depending on dates.

Right time (or wrong time) you can easily pay close to $1000/night at a great hotel. Other times you could spend 1/3 of that amount.
