Pate for lunch in Cambridge

Hey folks,

I'm hoping to find some good pate for lunch near Harvard Sq. I've been disappointed with Harvest's, as I typically prefer a nice liver pate to a chunky country style. Any recs?

  1. It's not a restaurant but I love the pate selection (and the cheese, wine, and breads) at the Wine and Cheese Cask at the corner of Kirkland and Beacon (across from Kabob Factory)

    1. I know Cardullo's has a sandwich on its menu called the Radcliffe: pate, fig spread, and dijon mustard on a French roll. It's been a few years, but I seem to recall it being a smooth liver pate.

      1. re: finlero

        I get that sandwich often and if you don't specify what you would like they use a country pate.

      2. I'm pretty sure that Sandrines has a duck foie gras pate on their lunch menu.

        1. Both Evergood Market on Mass Ave and Formaggio just outside of Huron Village sell smooth pates (and also the Huron Supermarket). Formaggio I believe has sandwiches and used to have an outlet in the garage, at evergood you have to roll your own. Both are walkable from the square if there isn't a cold breeze, with evergood being a bit easier to reach.
