I always make sure to visit Zen when I am visiting my partner in Boston. Restaurant is always nice, not too busy and not too quiet. Service is great from staff, always ensure you have everything you need but do not peer over you constantly....More

The sushi here at Zen was fantastic. Fresh and creative. We also had the best vegetable fried rice I have since leaving San Francisco. I highly recommend popping in for a bite or togo. The service was good.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
