I am going skating at the frog pond tomorrow, yes i know this is touristy, but i have never been-and was hoping to get some advice on nearby dining that is yummy, somewhat cheap, and vegetarian friendly. Any suggestions?

    if you want to stay in beacon hill you can try grotto, figs, or artu. all nice places where you should be fine as a vegetariant.

      Chinatown is a five-minute walk down Boylston from the frog pond, and your yummy, cheap and veggie-friendly options there are legion. And don't be embarrassed -- we make a point of taking at least a couple of swan boat rides in the public garden every summer, and if either of us skated, we'd certainly do so at the frog pond. Why let the tourists have all the fun?

        I went skating on the Frog Pond a couple weeks ago and had a great time.We went to the Paramount on Charles Street before hand and had a nice meal. I had a black bean burger that was pretty good.
