      Intermission's a possibility. (And really close.)

        Myers+Chang, Washington Street at East Berkeley Street, is only a few blocks away and does a very nice lunch if you want more upscale Chinese. It's counter service only, but quite pleasant at lunch. Silver Line would get you there and back pretty quick if you hit the connections right.

          On the other hand, I've waited 20 minutes and more for a Silver Line bus - guaranteed to take the fun out of a lunchtime excursion.

          I diss the place every time someone tries to pass it off as "German food" in Boston, but this is of the settings for which I would actually recommend Jacob Wirth's.

            Silly to wait for a bus, since it's only a 10-minute walk, but it might save you a few if you hit it just right.

            Another thought, for good cheap American Chinese food: Shanghai Cafe at Tremont and Washington.

              I assume by more upscale, you're referring to the ambiance and service rather than the food. Looking at M+C's menu online, the dishes look to be more on the modest side, rather than with the type of ingredients associated with more luxe Cantonese dining that are served in a number of Cantonese places in Chinatown.
