Lunch options near Hynes?

I have a conference at the Hynes Convention Center and at the Sheraton Boston -- any lunch recs nearby?

  1. I'd recommend the Other Side Cosmic Cafe for something cheap and interesting (if that's what you're looking for). It's on the corner of Newbury St. and Mass Ave.

    1. If you're in a hurry, there is the Food Court at the Prudential Center which is fairly good for a food court.The Top of the Hub (also in the Prudential Center) is a great time and they have excellent food, but TotH is a bit on the pricey side. It's best if you don't mind splurging a bit. If you are in the mood for Thai there is the always excellent Chili Duck on Boylston St across the street from the Prudential Center. Joe's All American is on Newbury St and they are quite good too (though a little pricey). If you are in the mood for sushi there is Sushi Express on Newbury St (for relatively cheap sushi) and Douzo for more expensive sushi. There are a lot of dining options in the area. If I had to choose one I would more likely than not go to Chili Duck.

      1. bukowski's for beer and a burger, brasserie jo for alsatian and cafe jaffa for middle eastern

        1. Bangkok City on Mass. Ave (down just a couple of blocks from the Hynes) has pretty damn good Thai. Just be sure to ask the waiter or waitress for the "Thai menu" when you're seated. It's the authentic stuff.

          1. If you feel like taking a short walk, Cafe Amsterdam on Columbus Avenue has excellent sandwiches and subs, and decent desserts. It's a tiny little corner spot in the South End, about 3 blocks south of the Prudential Center. Their chicken parm roll-up is really, really good.
