Boston Area's Best Lunches?
My husband and I are staying around here for our vacation next week and are looking for suggestions for places to go to lunch in the Boston and Metrowest Areas. So what are your favorites?
Waltham has a boatload of good places for lunch: New Mother India (Indian buffet), Erawan of Siam or Green Papaya (both Thai), Bison County (BBQ), Taqueria Mexico (Mexican, and for the area pretty authentic), and Domenic's (Italian and subs) will start you off. Sadie's is a board favorite for steak tips (haven't been) and some like Carl's for huge steak subs (less a favorite of mine, but there's much worse). There are also a few Salvadoran spots that are good whose names escape me.
my current fav for lunch is to to go the super 88 food court in allston--there are quite a lot of options (vietnamese, ramen, indian, chinese, taiwanese, some others i'm forgetting) that are tasty and not very expensive.
Sultan's Kitchen for Mediterranean food-Broad St. in the Financial District. Redbones in Davis Square for BBQ.
Neptune for, of course, oysters.
Antico Forno for chicken parm
Artu for pizza with gorgonzola; potato and prosciutto
Marias for a slice of the riccota pie with the chocolate in the middle
Cafe Paradiso for expresso martinis
Silvertones for mac & cheese with a nice glass of wine
Shabu Zen on Tyler St in Chinatown for hot pot cooking
Drinks atthe Oceana Lounge at the Marriot Long Wharf for the view
Well, it's a start at least.
