Just about the highest place to eat in Boston, awesome views from 52nd floor. The centre is mainly shopping and other activities but it's worth seeking out this restaurant which seems to be a hidden gem ! Food was good too .

There are shoppings malls in and around the building, mostly very expensive, along with some decent places to eat. If it's a gorgeous day, the observatory ($) gives a great view of the city.

Fancy location, shops are over priced. Eataly complex is nice for grabbing food, nice market. A must place to see but not more than 30 mins to spend.

Two floors up from the sky deck at $20/head is the restaurant and bar. The bar is tiny and they block your view out ( to force you down to sky deck). There are good views from the restaurant tables. The bar is crowded and...More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
