Friday night Moody St (or nearby) dinner

I'm taking my mother out to a movie at the Embassy, then dinner as a (quite belated) mother's day gift. Where should we go to dinner? I'd like to try something new and interesting, but not too pricey. My mom loves Tuscan Grill but I'd like something a little bit cheaper. We've been to Asian Grill, Tom Can Cook, New Mother India, the Skellig, and Watch City, so I'd like to try something else. Any ideas? I've been wanting to try the nearby Kebab and Tandoor, but is that a complete hole-in-the-wall? Any reccommendations would be very much appreciated.

  1. I'd hit up Solea. Good tapas, nice atmosphere, a nice little spot. It's probably my favorite spot on Moody St.

      I forgot about Solea. Thanks for the idea. I have never been out for tapas before... how many would be a typical amount to order for two people?

      1. re: fbf242

        Depending on how hungry you are, I would say 4 - 7. The nice thing about tapas is you can order a few of them, then put in another order after their finished if you're sitll hungry. From what I rememeber Solea makes a good Sangria as well.

        1. re: fbf242

          Less than 7 - but it's the kind of thing that you can just order more as the night goes on. Start with 3 and see how it goes.

      2. I hear that all the Indian places are good on Moody Street, but I've only been to one. Sadies is across the street from the Embassy and has great bar food, best tips in town. Next door to that is Boca, really cool place but maybe not for mom.Tempo is awesome but probably in the same league as Tuscan, price wise. There are so many places to go, I have lived in that area almost all my life and really havent eaten a bad meal on Moody steet yet!

        1. I really like K&T but yes, a complete hole in the wall. Save it for another occasion. See the other current thread on Waltham/Watertown.

          1. I haven't been able to get there yet myself, but Taqueria Mexico on Charles St. (near the corner of Main & Moody) seems well liked by many here.
