Liver + Onion Lunch?

hedda lettuce Jan 23, 2009 04:06 AM

My DC loves liver and onions . Read in todays Globe that Loch Ober is now closed for lunch.
We live in Cambridge, but anywhere close by would be fine. Any Ideas?

    Petit Robert Bistro in Kenmore serves calf liver and onions for brunch on the weekends. I went there with 3 other people and of the four dishes ordered my liver and onions was the best; they had great flavor but the liver was a tad dry. I would still recommend it though.

      The disclaimer is that I haven't eaten there in years but I used to like the liver and onions at Durgin-Park.

        A couple more dinner liver and onionses: Locke-Ober (pretty amazing, and a deal compared to most of the menu), and Hamersley's Bistro (also fantastic).

          I noticed Abe & Louie's had it on their lunch menu.

          For a few years running, Harvest had them on their lunch menu, but I haven't checked recently. Quite tasty.

            Two other factors for the closing, from my observation:

            1. Much more competition, especially nearer the office areas.
            2. Much less traffic in Downtown Crossing with Filene's shut.

              Also the Mt. Vernon Restaurant in Somerville has Liver and Onions. Not bad at all.

                Good to know! Of course, now I have that finger-snappin' jingle stuck in my head.

              The Locke-Ober lunch closing is sad, another sign o' the times. I'm glad I found a place that does a roast beef hash with poached eggs, Auntie B's in West Roxbury, though it doesn't quite have the same atmosphere.

              I love liver and onions. Some places that routinely have it on the menu: Atasca (Kendall Square), Poppa B's (Dorchester), Aegean (Watertown), El Cafetal (Allston), and the Petit Robert Bistros (though only at dinner).

                It is on the Deluxe Diner's dinner menu [Watertown.] Never eaten it there myself however.

                  I'm pretty sure the Busy Bee in Brookline has it on certain days.
