    I haven't been there, but I several people have told me that Bistro 5, in Medford, is excellent. From what I know, it is small (reservations recommended), BYO, and expensive, but the food is supposedly amazing. Attached is a link to a review from the Boston Globe.

        Rudy's has been hit & miss past 2 years. Bad enough the last time that I won't be back.

        Try Chieko. It's a great Japanese/Korean place in Powderhouse Circle, right outside the Tufts campus.

          Bob's Foods in Medford Square has the most amazing sandwiches. It is about a five minute ride away from the campus, and I still go back there whenever I am in the area. They also have great steak fries as well. Highly recommended.

              I guess this is a bit late for Saturday, but you must go to Victor's Deli on Broadway (Ball Square) for the chicken or veal parmigiana sandwiches. They are the best I've had. The panino (prosciutto and mozzarella) and other deli sandwiches aren't bad either, but if you've made your way there, try the chicken or veal.

              You'll also notice the class divide if you observe the patrons of Victor's and Sound Bites (the brunch joint next door-- not bad, but overpriced and way too crowded). Medford is a very working class Italian neighborhood and has surprisingly little in the way of good Italian fair besides Victor's. But that's another thread.

                the borgo cafe in teele square has good sushi and thai/korean dishes. there is no atmosphere, really, none, but personally, i admire the service and the quality of the food. no alcohol. the sushi chef did time at jae's, so it is said. not sure what the name has to do with asian food...
