Folks Traveling through Boston for one Lunch- want Something "Really Good"
I used to live in Boston, but haven't been there for many years and my parents have a request for a "really tasty and elegant lunch" for this coming Friday the 14th.
I would interpret this as well prepared food but not ultra-high end. Anywhere in Boston, Cambridge and Brookline would be fine. Fusion, ethnic or contemporary would work. My dad says that this is a test for Chowhound. I told him you wouldn't let him down!
Another thought: Locke-Ober's, which no longer does lunch except for Restaurant Week (this week and next). There have been several highly positive reviews of its RW lunch offering and it certainly fits the bill for elegant. Not sure if you can still get reservations though. Me, I'm headed there next week....
