Picky eater(s) South End

My brother and his fiancee are taking thier engagment phots in the South End tomorrow and my boyfriend and I are planning on having dinner with them. However, my brother has the tast buds of a 5 year old(think, Chicken Parm, Cheeseburgers, Pizza, etc) and my boyfriend and I are vegetarains, sortof(we only eat fish occassionally). Any suggestions for a group of picky eaters??

Thanks !!

  1. Check out Coda. I think you'll find there something for all of you on the menu.

      Note on Coda - the burger isn't on the menu anymore, but they will make it upon request.

      (Edit - apparently it's on the website menu. So, they either recently put it back on or haven't updated their website in a while.)

    2. Stella could also fit the bill, a bit loud inside though

        1. What about Pops? They specialize in "upscale" diner food, which includes meatloaf, cheeseburgers, mac and cheeseetc.

          Also, you might want to think about Picco, which is a casual place for pizza and ice cream. I think you could find some vegetarian and meat options.

              I second Picco - upscale pizzas and delicious ice cream . . . but not so upscale that it doesn't suit the tastes of 5-year-olds (we took ours there ALL the time!). It's a place we often meet up with our less-adventurous friends, but also choose to go on our own.


            2. you could go to JJ Foleys for pub fare- burgers, club sandwiches etc. For veggie items they have some salads and a veggie burger I know.
