Anyone know a good restaurant in Downtown Crossing open for lunch and dinner? Nothing to expenisve but good food, wine list and cocktails? Something not too intimidating? Thank you

    Downtown Crossing has fairly limited options in my opinion but one good one is the Good Life.

      I like Silvertone on Bromfield St. Never checked their wine list, tho...

        silvertone has one of the lowest mark-up programs on wine in the city. the list is small, but an incredible bargain. last week i had a bacio divino pazzo for $35. it wholesales around $25.

        I second Silvertone as well. It has a very friendly atmosphere and delicious macaroni and cheese.

          Ivy isn't bad either. food's pretty good. wine is decently priced and a good selection. not sure if they're open for lunch though.

            Ivy recently opened for lunch...mostly sandwiches, salads.

            Haven't been so can't commemt on the food.

            There's also Vinalia; which I don't much care for.

            I'd hit Silvertone..good food and VERY fair wine prices..or Good Life
