There's nothing particularly Northeastern about the food at this chain. But whatever direction you're coming from in New York, you can always find the nearest Boston Market on Voice Places. Need a pseudo-home-cooked meal in a hurry? Just roll through the drive-through window (or go inside to be mesmerized by all those chickens slowly revolving on the signature Boston Market rotisserie). The comfort-food menu includes juicy chicken and home-style sides like sweet, crumbly cornbread and ridiculously creamy mac and cheese. Go ahead, put it on a plate and pretend you made it with your own two hands--just be sure to replace the plastic cutlery with the real stuff.
