Saturday Lunch Downtown Boston Area

My husband and I will be walking around Boston on a Saturday in a few weeks (he'll be showing me all of the old haunts, workplaces, etc.) and we expect to be in the downtown area around lunchtime. What's chow-worthy that will be open on a Saturday? We'd like to have something light as we plan on having dinner in the North End. Thanks!

  1. I'm fairly certain Sultan's Kitchen is open on Saturdays. You could split the meze plate and maybe another small item. That would be a good light lunch.

    1. If you're in the back bay/newbury st (where the majority of the shopping is), I like Parish Cafe on Boylston for sandwiches is a good option, I also like the Other Side Cafe (but it's not for everyone).

      There are a couple of spots on Tremont in the South End that do a great job at lunch too (Pops and Aquitaine come to mind)

        Yes, the Parish Cafe is a lovely spot with outdoor tables. Each sandwich was created by a different Boston chef. I also like the Other Side, and agree it's not for everyone. It's less of a foodie place, and more of coffeehouse for hippy-hipsters (with food).
