  1. price range? Green Street is casual, but some may find it pricey.

    1. Eat at Pho N Rice, on Beacon St!

      1. I'd like to keep it relatively cheap.

        1. Diner on the Cambridge/Somerville line at Danny's Diner on Beacon St. HTH, HAND, etc.

        2. how about entrees under $20, eclectic is fine, perhaps with a good beer selection?

              Very casual, Redbones, Davis Sq., Somerville. Plenty of beer.

                  Second the Garden at the Cellar. Trina's Starlite Lounge is good too. The Independent in Union Sq - sit in the bar.
