great lunch on a Saturday
A friend is returning from the west coast in a week or two, staying in Davis Square. I'd like to take her to a nice lunch in the Somerville - Cambridge area, willing to consider Boston for the right place. No Mexican or tapas -- she has good options out there for both.
So far, all I've come up with is Upstairs on the Square (she went there last time, so I'm inclined to find somewhere else). I'm not averse to more affordable/ethnic options like Qingdao, just want to cast a wide net.
Already checked some obvious choices -- no lunch served (Oleana, Craigie Street, Chez Henri).
what about Macchu Picchu in Union Square?

there are also many brasilian + portugese places to eat here..maybe that is an option she doesn't have so much of? one idea a little further down in cambridge..
