lunch in Wellesley?
I'm looking for recommendations for a lunch for 2 in Wellesley that isn't *too* expensive or excessively long and drawn out (in other words, we need to go back to work but could probably go a little over an hour). A plus if it is readily accessible from Waltham. We like all kinds of food but pork would be out.
My wife, the in-laws, and I had a great dinner at Amarin last week (they also do lunch). The food was excellent (we split a bunch of entrees including the seafood bouquet, chicken massaman curry, beef basil and pork ginger) and the beef-kabob appetizer was fantastic.
Cafe Mangal does nice lunch but no alcohol. Blue Ginger is a great place for lunch and I have had service that is good enough to get in and out in reasonable time. Lunch at Blue Ginger is a great way to enjoy this famous place without the dinner reservation hassle. For Japenese- Yama, across from Whole Foods, upstairs is quite good.
