Financial District - Takeout
- Big Momma Anne
I find a real dearth of decent takeout in the financial district. I've had it with Souper Salad, Rebecca's, and Au Bon Pain. There is no pasta to be found in this area that hasn't been cooked 10 hours previous to being served. Does anyone have any delicious secrets to share?
J Pace's is the only takeout that comes close to freshly made pasta to go. They have lots of other specialties including antipasto, Italian cold-cut sandwiches, and other hot entrees.
I like the pasta carbonara (there are two sizes -- large is very very filling).
The staff is quite efficient (ala Soup Nazi), as to handle the lines that form during lunch hour.
I go to the one located in the building at One Federal St. There are other locations around downtown (main store is in the North End).
You gotta love places like Rebecca's charging $7-$8 for a tuna sandwich.
ahh yes. Whatever the market will support...
Used to work in Financial District until a few months ago. Loved having lunch in the cafeteria at the Fleet Bank corporate headquarter building on Federal Street. All kinds of good food to eat in or take out, quality stuff, good portions and the prices can't be beat. I really miss it now that I have to pay the ridiculous prices of Wellesley for average or mediocre food!!
