  1. 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.


    1. Rudy's in Davis square use to be good .

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

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

          What is good/recommended at Cheiko's? I'd like to try it.

        2. 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.

          1. redbones in davis square is my 2 cents
