Director Paul Feig has very fond memories of filming — and eating — in Boston while making “Ghostbusters.” The director, who has a history with the Hub, having shot the 2013 cop comedy “The Heat” here with actresses Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock, told us he likes it so much he and his wife, Laurie Karon, are looking to buy a house in Boston.“I love the restaurants and the people and the scenery,” he said “It could not be greater. All I do when I’m shooting there is look forward to where I’m going to eat dinner that night because there are so many great restaurants.” So, you’re wondering, what’s his favorite? “Any restaurant that Barbara Lynch owns is my favorite,” Feig told us. “I also love Mare, which is Frank DePasquale’s place. I love the North End. It’s one of my favorite places in the world.”
