So my friend works near Fenway and I work in the backbay and we're always trying to find a good lunch place thats between the two of us. Is this an impossible feat? We're very open and adventurous eaters.

    Woody's at 58 Hemenway is a great brick-oven pizza place. They recently revamped their menu and have a promising new chef who's a lot more daring than their last one. Good beer selection. Friendly and attentive staff - especially for lunch, when it's relatively quiet. Lot's of locals and students hang out there (it's sort of in the middle of Northeastern U.), and there are a lot of regulars, myself included.

      Try Panificio on the corner of Mass Ave. and Comm Ave. They have pretty good food with a nice atmosphere. They have both a sit down restaurant and a quick-togo counter where you can order up and sit outside. They also have a restaurant on Charles Street in Beacon Hill.
