Lunch Spot in Downtowm Boston
I'm looking for suggestions for a lunch spot in Downtown Boston to take my assistant as a "thank you".
Doesn't have to be Michelin 4-Star but definitely looking for something nice, nice atmosphere, very good food (ethnic OK) and definitely not one of the predictable "mainstream" restaurants.
Financial District, North End, North Station and Beacon Hill all OK re: location.
Thanks for the suggestions!
Great food, casual setting: Neptune Oyster
Very good food, "upscale casual" setting: Sel de la Terre
Very good food, more formal setting: Radius
I'd recommend Locke Ober. They will start serving lunch the first week of November. It is a classic Boston restaurant and will be a memorable experience for your assistant.
Thanks for the recs everyone -- we went to Sel De La Terre - was a very nice experience. They have a $21 prix fixe lunch menu which was very good. We both had a salad of mixed greens with pears walnuts and blue cheese, a Duck Confit and a dessert of bread pudding with a boule of coffee gelato on top. Service was very good, appropriately snooty -- could have been a little friendlier but took care of our every need. I recommend it!
