Looking for evening dining near the ICA on a Thursday

I'm not too familiar with the area down by the ICA for food; I've been to Legal Test Kitchen, which was okay, but I'd love to hear about other options for moderate to inexpensive places to eat on a weeknight. Bar food is fine if it's good. Many thanks!

    When I go to the ICA, I tend to take the Harbor Walk over to the Long Wharf area or a little further to the North End. This time of year may be a little cold for that. You have Salvatores right by LTK, which is quite reasonable. I haven't been but I know there are people who like it. My preference would be 606 Congress but it's probably more expensive than the price point you were looking for. I'm not sure how far Lucky's is from there, but it's very popular, and may be what you're looking for.

      There is also the Daily Catch in the courthouse and of course, the Barking Crab.

        If you don't mind a basement, Sinatra-style Dive bar as your backdrop, Lucky's has excellent food and it's inexpensive.

            It might be too expensive, but Sportello is very good.

              I second the Channel Cafe recommendation. Very solid food, nice variety and good prices.
