Post-colonoscopy lunch on Rte 9???

My SO is having a colonoscopy tomorrow late morning at Brigham & Women's. Any suggestions for a post-procedure lunch along Rte 9 on the way back to New Hampshire? There's Legal in Brookline, but anything more chowish? He's been eating jello all day and he's already starving...

  1. Wow, this is probably the best titled thread ever. While I can't help you much, after having all four of my wisdom teeth taken out, I had a lovely tasting menu at Radius after a week of jello, yoghurt, baby food and spaghetti'os.

    I might actually recommend coming into town and having lunch at No. 9 and then getting on Rt. 93 back to New Hampshire.

    1. Best of luck to him...I'm sure he will want to eat something really tasty after the procedure is done. There are a few places that come to mind along or near Route 9. Family Restaurant in Brookline Village has very good Turkish cuisine. Up the road a bit is Bernard's, a Chinese restaurant in the Chestnut Hill Mall; I personally wasn't impressed by the food, but others seem to like it, so it may be worth a try. Further up the road, just off Route 9 on Needham Street is the Farm Grill, which is one of my favorite Greek restaurants in the Boston area. There are other places a bit further off Route 9, but this is a start, anyways.

        Don't know about Greek food..:)

        Eastern Standard hit the spot for procedure.

      2. LOL! I know exactly how he feels. How about Brown Sugar Cafe for Thai food, not far from the hospital?

        1. You win! Best thread title ever!

          I think I'd really want a DRINK with my food post-colonoscopy. I'd head straight down Brookline Ave. into Kenmore to Eastern Standard. Seats are comfy and the food and drinks are great. Do the patient a favor and let the valet look for parking. ;)

          1. I'd recommend Oishii for delicious sushi on Hammond St. in Chestnut Hill, right by rte 9 (plenty of posts on it on this board).
