Lunch places near Back Bay?

I'm travelling to a Conference next week at the Westin Copley Plaza. Setting aside the chains and usual deli type establishments, do you have any recommendations of where to go for a lunch hour? Pasta, salad, ethnic meals are all in my usual group of lunch plans.

        Kashmir (at the corner of Newbury and Gloucester) has a decent Indian buffet. http://www.kashmirrestaurant.com/

            Parish Cafe on Boylston - a changing variety of gourmet sandwiches designed by chefs around the city.

                I suggest Cafe Jaffa, a middle eastern restaurant on Gloucester street. If you are dining with another person the "feast for two" is delicious and a great bargain. This is one of my favorite little places in the Back Bay.
