As many, many marketing professionals descend upon Boston next week for Inbound 2015, you can bet that they’ll be looking for the best food and drinks that Boston has to offer. Lucky for you, DataHero has compiled a quick guide for you so you know exactly where you want to eat and drink before you go! One caveat; we’ve tried to keep all these locations within walking distance from the Boston Convention Center, since most of us will be staying in that area. Below is the list we’ve created of bars and restaurants, with personal annotations to each.

Quick lunch in between sessions
Sweetgreen – Looking for a healthy option? This is your place. Sweetgreen is similar to Chipotle, but for salads. It can get busy around lunchtime though, so to avoid the crowds go before noon or after 1. (9 min walk)
Yankee Lobster Co. – Take advantage of Boston’s access to fresh seafood and hit up this spot for a quick lunch or dinner. Pro tip: Get a tour ticket for Harpoon brewery, grab dinner at Yankee Lobster Fish Market, and by the time you’ve finished dinner, it’ll be time for your tour! (11 min walk)
Pastoral – Rated Best of Boston in 2015 for their incredible pizza, you can either dine in if you have some time, or they offer a quick service carryout of some of their signature items so you can head back to Inbound quickly and on a full stomach. (8 min walk)
Post-productive day happy hours
Harpoon Brewery – Check out Harpoon brewery for beers, and if you have some extra time check out their brewery tour. To get you in the mood for fall, their UFO Pumpkin will be on tap, check it out to get a liquid form of pumpkin pie! (14 min walk)
Trillium – Because Boston is such a brewpub hub, we couldn’t pick just one brewery to share with you guys. Trillium is a great option that’s also really close to the convention center and offers great tours. (8 min walk)
Lucky’s – Lucky’s is known for their mixed drinks and happy hour specials so schedule your networking here for the cocktail fans. (8 min walk)
Morning Pick Me Up
Flour Bakery + Cafe – Stop in for an indulgent pastry to accompany your morning caffeine fix. Bonus, they also have hot and cold sandwiches for lunch. (10 min walk)
Barrington Cafe – This local cafe roasts their own beans and offers delicious coffee free of pesticides, herbicides and synthetic fertilizers. Check it out if you’re craving an authentic Boston coffee experience. (8 min walk)
Coffee Trike – If you’re headed towards Dewey Square, see if you can spot the Coffee Trike zooming around. It was voted as one of Business Insider’s 50 coolest small businesses this year, and it’s definitely worth a try.
