As Sibos gets fully underway, with meeting after meeting, we thought you might like our thoughts on the 5 best places that we have found to relax and savour the atmosphere and cooking of Boston.

Best Coffee. Try the Thinking Cup at 165 Tremont Street. This is a great blend of coffee and atmosphere; frequented by a great cross section of Bostonians. Not your regular tourist trap. thinkingcup.com

Best Breakfast. For a true authentic diner experience, and one that is open 24/7, try the South Street Diner, situated on the junction of South Street and Kneeland Street. The service is great, the food outstanding and it is a real step back in time. southstreetdiner.com

Best Fish Restaurant. For a great atmosphere and stunning crab & lobster, try the Barking Crab, which is located right on the waterfront at 88 Sleeper Street. barkingcrab.com

Best Italian Restaurant. In Downtown Boston, there is Salvatores, at 545 Washington. A really modern take on Italian food, in great surroundings and with a fantastic soundtrack. salvatoresrestaurants.com

Best Steak. This has to be Boston Chops, which is located at 1375 Washington Street. Nothing more to be said, just look at the picture above! bostonchops.com
