Just one day in Boston -- where to eat lunch?
Heading to Boston in a few weeks, and looking for somewhere to eat. My criteria are that it be (1) open Monday, (2) open for lunch, (3) reasonably central, (4) not seafood (having this the night before), and (5) unusually good.
North End for pasta or chicken parm - search the board there are many suggestions
Chinatown: Shabu Zen on Tyler for hot pot; Penang for Malaysian
Theater District; Montien for Thai; Intermission Tavern for pub fare
Note mixed reviews for Chacarero recently - this is a potentially fine and kind of unique sandwich shop, but there is zero ambiance and service, if that matters.
My picks would be somewhere in Chinatown: Taiwan Cafe, Best Little Restaurant, or Xinh Xinh (pho) or Sultan's Kitchen (Turkish) on State St.
