  1. There is Pierrot (french bistro) and Antonios inexpensive Italian place both near the corner of Cambridge and Charles. Further on Charles, King and I Ristorante Toscano, Artu, but these are a bit further to walk. Also, Liberty Hotel has a couple of places in it (Scampo).

    1. Thanks gourmaniac! Very helpful!

        Ma Soba, about 5 minute walk up Cambridge St. While pan asian ish, IMO the sushi is pretty good.
        There's also that little italian family place right across Cambridge St. from MGH. Good red sauce place.

          Agree, Scampo is great. Pierrot Bistro is ok and much less expensive. Also, Figs on Charles Street is good and less expensive than Scampo, which is the best.

            I agree with Scampo. We did this before the holidays when visiting a friend at MGH. We parked in the garage at MGH and it was a one block walk. Service was great and food was even better...

          1. We've always enjoyed Lala Rokh when we're in the area. It's low key, not too expensive, and the menu is always different and enjoyable. It's about 4 (?) blocks down Charles Street and a half block left on Mt Vernon.
