Looking for meatloaf
Some relatives are coming to town this weekend, and one of them wants meatloaf for lunch on Saturday afternoon. Since I have an aversion to meatloaf due to nightmares from my mom's not so great version of this so many years ago, I have no idea where to go.
I'm looking for a comfortable place in Boston that will be open for lunch on weekends and also serves beer & wine.
Coda in the South End would fit the bill: casual but nice looking, open for lunch on weekends, beer and wine (and good cocktails), and a terrific, very beefy-tasting turkey/portabello mushroom meat loaf.
Most of my other favorites (Franklin Cafe, Zon's, Silvertone) aren't open for weekend lunch.
I have not had it in years but i used to really like John Harvards meatloaf. They slice it then grill the slices
I had a fantastic beef meatloaf at Pops last week, but I believe it is only on the dinner menu. Could you have lunch at 5:30?
If Boston extends to Cambridge: I've had passable meatloaf at Zoe's Diner on Mass Ave near Harvard Square. It's only normal diner meatloaf, but ok nonetheless. They have a surprisingly decent beer selection and they do serve wine. You could also go to ASSBar in Inman for a meatloaf sandwich, I don't love it, but they guy next to me did. I think it has a much cooler vibe than Zoe's.
Unless they're desperate for beef meatloaf (where are they coming from where you can't find meatloaf?), I'd hit Coda or wait until dinner and get to Pops.
Pretty blog, BTW.
