How Could Boston's Dining Scene Improve?

Zagat quizzed some local chefs on how the Boston dining scene could be improved. BOKX 109 chef Stephen Coe, for example, would love to see food trucks permitted to run later at night when bars get out, while Church chef John Rush wants to see more authentic Eastern European cuisine that's closer than Fall River. And of course Zagat brought in the inevitable NYC card, supported by quotes from Sweet Cheeks' Tiffani Faison, who'd like Boston diners "to be adventurous, not just think they are," and Tavern Road's Louis DiBiccari, who wants to see more "art- and music-inspired events that coexist with food and beverage," like Brooklyn's GoogaMooga festival.

Keeping the "Boston food sucks! NYC food rules!" rants to a minimum, weigh in via the comments below. How do you think the Boston dining scene could be improved? Would you eat at food trucks at 3 AM? Devour pierogi and halupkies? Attend a festival showcasing food alongside music? Share your ideas and dreams below.
