Pate for lunch in Cambridge

sailormouth Oct 17, 2006 03:15 PM

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?

    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)

      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.

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

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

          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.
