Veggie/Fish-friendly near MFA?

GretchenS Jun 30, 2006 02:07 PM

Looking for a veggie-friendly (fish is OK) casual place near the MFA or between Arlington and the MFA. The birthday girl does not like sushi, sadly, so that's out. Ease of parking a huge bonus. TIA.

    Penguin Pizza is on Huntington up at Brigham Circle, and is a fun place with lots of veggie options for their pizzas. Mission Bar and Grill is across Huntington from Penguin, and I've heard some good things about it but haven't been there myself. Not sure about parking in that area, however.

      Since it is a birthday, I would think you should go somewhere nicer than Penguins (which I like) and Mission Bar and Grill (which I do not like). The Arlington T stop is a few minutes walk from Chinatown so you might want to think about going to Peach Farm for delicious fish! Or, walk to Newbury St. from the MFA and go to Tapeo.

      How about Dish on Shawmut Avenue? They have some good non-meat entrees, and you can usually find parking along nearby Tremont or Washington Street. They have outdoor dining, too.

        Trattoria Toscana doesn't have any fish dishes iirc, but there should be a reasonable selection of vegetarian-friendly dishes.
