Pre-theater restaurant in Cambridge?
We're going to ART on Brattle in Cambridge in June. Any thoughts about a nice place to eat early nearby? We like quiet tables with excellent food of most cultures. The main thing is near the theater and parking that would be open like 5:30...
There isn't any parking super close to the ART, unless you luck out and score a meter spot. I'd go to Mt. Auburn St. and park in the rear of the building across from the post office. You can get in and out for $11 if you get validated.
Check online for the menus for Upstairs on the Square, Casablanca, Harvest, Rialto, and Om. All are within a 5 minute stroll to the theater. I've had excellent meals at all in the past few months.
I've had two excellent meals at the Monday Club Bar (lower level of Upstairs on the Square) in the last two weeks.
I'd also highly recommend Sandrine (French/Alsatian) if you have time to walk about 5-7 minutes each way from the theater.
After the show stop in to Burdick's for some chocolate (liquid or solid, it's all delicious!) If it's warm out I'm a fan of the frozen hot chocolate, very decadent!
