Lunch in Boston on Friday afternoon...suggestions please.
I will be coming down on Friday with two friends to go to the Sox game. We plan on getting there around 1:30, checking into our hotel, and going out for lunch. We would like a casual spot where we can get a fantastic lunch (pizza, sandwiches, burgers, etc.). We are staying right near the Arlington t-stop so something either in that area or some place on the green line would be great. We will be driving down from the north (I-95 to Route 1) so if you think there is another place that's better in NH or MA north of Boston that would be great as well. Thanks so much!
try the parish cafe or the rattlesnake - both are close, have nice food and good atmosphere. both have outside seating.
One of my favorite Red Sox games ever started with an afternoon of patio dining at Stephanie's on Newbury. It is sort of trendy but the location is perfect for game day. I had a great salad with like 6 giant fresh grilled shrimp and my friend had the burger and it was cooked perfectly. It was one of those beautiful spring days so the patio was packed and we enjoyed some pre-game adult beverages in style and sunshine before we went to the game. And the Sox won!
The Parish is good. I also like Fig’s. It’s a Todd English restaurant that has upscale pizzas. It’s located on Charles St., just across the Public Garden from the Arlington T stop.
If you go further down on Boylston Street, you could try out Sel de la Terre. They have some great lunch options and their burger is one of my favorites in the city (although a little heavy on the salt).
