Brookline Ave Hospital District

I have to pick up a friend from one of the hospitals on Longwood for dinner tonight. I know the Sox are in town so the area becomes a little crazy and the places I would normaly think of like Audubon and O'Leary's are outta the question. Any reccomendation for a good spot where my friend does not have to walk to far?

I thought about The Mission Pub or the Squelling Pig but there is zero parking in the area.

  1. Elephant Walk at St. Mary's & Beacon has a parking lot out back.

      It may be for valet parking only, but even if available it only holds 6 or so cars.

    2. Head to Brookline Village which is close to the hospitals and away from Fenway. There is parking available with a little searching. For high end, La Morra is very good; there are many more casual places along Harvard St.

      1. Penguin Pizza on Huntington at brigham circle (right at green line stop) has very good pizza plus pasta and salads, and about 200 microbeers or your friend could hop on the brighton bus that runs to the hospital district (65 i think) and meet you at Orinoco's in Brookline Village.

        1. You can park in the Stop and Shop lot- just read the signs and don't park in the short term section. That's what we have done when we go to Mission.
